Food Porn Friday | Rooster PM | Costa Mesa

Friday, July 01, 2011


Good, even {mildly} authentic tapas is sooooo hard to come by in OC. I'm as much a foodie as the next guy (granted the next guy dines out daily and dishes the dirt on his/her blog), but nevertheless, I don't think down home, dependable, Spanish-inspired flavors in bona-fide Spanish-influenced suburbia is too much to ask for, do you? 


After spending a small fortune in Barcelona last winter sampling THE BEST TAPAS I've ever had in my life, I'm convinced, no one's up to par. We've got Lola's in DT Santa Ana (one of my tried-and-true faves), Tu Tu Tango at the Block (a total joke), Felix Continental Cafe in Old Town Orange (pass!), but after that??? Hmmm...still waiting for a light at the end of my gastronomical tunnel guys. 


Visited 4.5 star yelp-rated Rooster PM last week with my foodie posse and I gotta admit, I was not in the least bit impressed. Had I ever signed on to connect with the Yelp crowd, I'd give it a mediocre 3 stars. See below and lemme know what Rooster reminds you of...


Kinda reminds me of what you'd find at your local gourmet food truck dontcha think??...except you could hardly call this gourmet in my eyes...


750 St. Clair St.
Costa Mesa, CA 92626

*Insider's tip: Rooster Cafe (their breakfast/brunch/lunch joint) serves up some delicious early morning meals before the night session starts. I'd much more recommend the former...breakfast burrito's a good place to start*

Hope y'all enjoy a safe and splendid long weekend!

  4. haha. you are absolutely right. To me, the dishes look quite greasy and unappetizing. I mean, there's a kind of food truck appeal to it, but I dunno... and presentation could be improved, most def!
