There is a brand new Mediterranean restaurant in Rancho Santa Margarita! SAJJ Mediterranean already has successful locations in the San Francisco Bay area and they have now expanded to Southern California.
Have you been to Slaters Anaheim Hills? This is their original location and it began their tradition of serving up lots of burgers and bacon. Yes, I am a vegetarian and they have plenty of options for people like me. There are even two vegan burgers on the menu, a veggie patty and the Impossible burger.
South Coast Plaza is great for both shopping and dining. I recently had lunch at Mezzet Mediterranean Cuisine and it was fantastic. This is a fine dining experience and definitely not typical mall fast food.
While on a road trip in the Mojave Desert, I was pleasantly and unexpectedly surprised to stumble across this little gem. Yes, there is a Ridgecrest tea room and it is the perfect spot for afternoon tea.The tea room is located in a separate building behind My Enchanted Cottage gift shop.
