I’m going to Riverside for Festival of Lights, and I was wondering if there’s anything especially good or unique to eat in Riverside or Corona?

Originally, I was planning to eat at one of the Mission Inn restaurants because that was the only way to see the interior of the Mission Inn during the Festival of Lights. But, there’s no more openings at night for those restaurants.

Other possible Riverside choices I found were Anchos Southwest Grill and The Spotted Pig in Riverside and Luna Modern Mexican Kitchen in Corona.

Are any of those places good, or are they just ‘good’ for Riverside but not that good compared to what you could eat in LA?

It’s been a few years but the Spotted Pig is ok. It’s Riverside good. If you’re driving out from LA maybe stop for Chinese or Korean in the Walnut, Diamond Bar or Rowland Heights area. The LA board will have lots of suggestions. Our favorites in that area are Earthen, Yangmani and Happy Harbor. Lot of people crushing on Eat Joy Food lately.
