Just noticed that Cantonese cafe Delicious Food Corner opened up in Irvine, near Zion Market. Apparently it's big in SGV.

The Yelp reviews for it are all over the places. It's funny, though, that people are complaining about their prices compared to Monterey Park and Hacienda Heights stores. Really, you don't expect to see the same price in Irvine and MP when everything else is more expensive in Irvine.

I haven't tried Tasty Garden yet, so I'll try both and see how they compare.

Crazy the parking lot is packed. Heard there is a long line for discount seafood. I am just here to see my dentist and cannot find parking

Went to H-Mart on Saturday... big mistake... grand opening madness.

But the place is huge and the food court has quite a few offerings... more than the DJ H-Mart.

Are they keeping both open? I think someone mentioned that the DJ H-Mart was going to be replaced by a Chinese grocery store.

My wife went to the Westpark HMart, saw the crowds, said f this, and went to the DJ HMart which was unusually devoid of people.

Went to Delicious Food Corner today. The food wasn't good and it's pretty expensive. Not sure if it's Irvine price, so I'll have to check out Tasty Garden to compare price. One of my favorites, seafood fried noodle, was disappointing. Beef chow fun was a bit better, but still not very good. Can't compare to Happy Together in Chino Hills or Garden Bistro in Rowland Heights. And items on the menu are pretty limited.

My wife said she's not going back and I'll have to agree.

I've heard two similar negative reviews from friends. They like Tasty Garden better.

Per an e-mail from Regal, the Regal (Edwards) Westpark is permanently closing, effective today.  With its parent company filing for bankruptcy last week, it's not completely surprising, given the glut of screens (mostly Regal branded) around town.  Like the other local Regal (Edwards ) theaters, this one has been increasingly showing unique & Chinese-language films.

I wonder if some other operator will sign a lease for the location.  AMC would've been a viable candidate had they not just completed an overhaul of the Woodbridge 5.  Maybe Century Theaters?

Northern China Kitchen (the same one in the University Town Center) is also opening in that Westpark Plaza where the Pho place used to be next to the closed Big 5.

Big 5 moved to Heritage Plaza... a non-TIC retail center.

Honestly Heritage was a higher traffic plaza (at least until HMart opened, not sure how that will stabilize long-term)

Makes sense... Lake Forest/Mission Viejo has a large Persian population... although not sure if larger than Irvine's.
