I will add my voice to the chorus of satisfied diners here. I was at a conference and took a break to walk to this restaurant, based on Trip Advisor reviews. The walk from the Convention Centre was 30 minutes along Katella Avenue. The restaurant is in a strip mall on the northeast corner of Katella and Euclid St. It is small and spartan but the food tastes very very fresh. I had the banana flower tacos, which were delicious, and the garlic "chicken". No way could I tell that this was a vegetarian dish. They ask how spicy you want it and, given that I was going back to the conference, I asked for "not spicy" and got exactly that. On a Saturday and a warm day, it was not busy but I think that I was just lucky. It would be a good idea to take a break and treat yourself to this good food.
