Best Food on a Budget in Orange County

Peter's Gourmade Grill, right on the edge of Tustin, from its opening quickly became a hot spot for delicious gourmet burgers and sandwiches. If you ask anyone what to order at Peter's the answer will be quick: the signature ABC (avocado, bacon and cheddar) Burger. But the menu doesn't stop there, with all kinds of behemoth burger and sandwich combinations like The Rammer, grilled pastrami on top of a burger patty with grilled onions and all the fixings, or the basil chicken sandwich. Aside from things between bread, there are some appetizer, salad and main dish options too, some classic American and some with a Mediterranean or Mexican twist. The grill is in an old gas station so enjoy the unique surroundings as you dig into your meal.

Golden Dragon Chinese Food is a favorite in the area for bountiful and affordable Chinese cuisine. Dishes at Golden Dragon always taste fresh and seem to lack the layer of grease so often found accompanying Chinese food. Everything is prepared fresh to order, so you can make sure you get your food the way you want it, and they will even prepare some dishes that aren't on the menu. Favorites include the various soups, Mu-Shu dishes, potstickers and orange chicken. The interior is basic and without frills, but Golden Dragon is especially popular for take-out.

Fisherman's Restaurant and Bar alone makes a visit to San Clemente worthwhile. The restaurant has two sections that sandwich the entrance of San Clemente Pier. One section is more formal than the other, but how much will this glorious view cost you? As low as USD3 for a happy hour meal - no catch whatsoever! Of course, the seafood is a must-try and the oyster bar is awesome (as well as the regular bar). A sourdough bowl of clam chowder is not to be missed. Here, what you also get is a taste of San Clemente culture, probably the most laid back in Orange County. -Hoiyin Ip
