From now until around August 8th Gabbi's Mexican Kitchen in Orange is celebrating the origin of corn with a special menu with several appetizers and entrees to choose from as well as a newly created dessert. Read their writeup here. And here's some pictures from when I sampled the menu last Friday:

Was thumbing through a magazine and saw a picture of these fish tacos and made a mental note to try them sometime. After I tried them I started to see mentions of them everywhere. Wow, I guess they are popular. PDM Kitchen used to be known as Pain du Monde and has locations in Newport Beach, Corona del Mar, Dana Point and Irvine.


The tacos are big and fresh and cabbage-y as well as pricey. I think it is $14.50 for the platter of three but at least they are big tacos with plenty of fish and I was okay with eating my first one like a taco and the next two by forking the contents out of the tortillas. I was slightly bummed that they didn't grill my lime halves like in their promo pics. Overall it was a decent upscale treat to be enjoyed on occasion.

Great little taquería in Santa Ana that I never knew about until a friend pointed it out recently. Highlights are the awesome jeep outside, an awesome and extensive salsa bar, menudo y pozole, different taco specials on different days, the drive-up window, and the fearsome cartoon taco character seen on a few of their walls.
