Rainforest Cafe

Today I had my last lunch in Orange County. I was never wrong in choosing the venue which seemed really strange but interesting for me. As we started to walk inside the South Coast Plaza to look for a place to dine with, a certain spot caught my attention. I never thought that it was indeed a restaurant until my buddy told me so. It looks like a forest inside a mall where you can see robotic animals like elephants, gorillas, big birds and some aquariums full of different kind of fish. The place is so wonderful and so as the food. =)

Dinner at the Rusty Pelican

It was my first night in the United States and I never thought I can still manage to go out right after I came in. Travelers usually got jet log but I was not. We went to do some grocery shopping and headed towards the Newport Beach for a dinner. We stopped by a seafood restaurant by the harbor named Rusty Pelican. I was supposed to order a wine but I did not want to feel uncomfortable and instead I just thought about a wine making kit. It was a good welcome experience for me. The food was great though I was not able to finish them as I am not used to large servings. I enjoyed it more when the band started to play. By the way it is located at 2735 W Coast Hwy, Newport Beach, CA 92663. If you are going to Costa Mesa then you better go and try it there at Rusty Pelican.
