Sam Woo closed after a 28 year run. The twin curse of tax fraud and the pandemic probably did them in.

It's too bad that Sam Woo closed down. We like their barbecue express eatery. We were looking forward to getting some fast food there occasionally once we moved to Irvine. Oh well.

Sam Woo express always had a particular smell when you walk in, very nostalgic.  I can kinda smell it now just thinking about it.

Not really "retail" but the pop up shop that I mentioned which was supposed to open in July/August 2021 is finally opening "soon" in the Great Park. It was where the old playground was between the tennis and volleyball courts.

Basically there will be small retail vendors and food and drinks (alcoholic). I think it'll be a nice place to meet up with friends/family and grab a drink while your kids run around.

Heard that Bed, Bath & Beyond in The Marketplace center is closing.  An Irvine staple for many years.

New breakfast place opening up in Tustin legacy

https://www.toastkitchenbakery.com/

Next to the pizza press. They have a location in Costa Mesa.

They have a Korean burrito, that looks interesting.

Any idea when it's opening? Always nice to have another brunch option nearby.

My fav place close by is actually a french baking school called The Pastry School that is randomly just open one-two days a week. Their croissants are so good.

They were putting the signage on the building today so hopefully soon. I’ve seen the pastry school you mentioned, I didn’t realize they sold stuff to the public. I’ll have to check it out.

That a welcome change. Asian Tapas was pretty terrible.

I also heard TLT is closing at the Spectrum. Anyone know why? It was always busy when I visited.

Toast is decent. The Korean burrito is good.

Too bad they couldn’t bring a Fill Bakeshop with them too.
