The Irvine Asian food scene continues to grow with each passing year. New eateries are popping up here and there. A notable addition to the Chinese offerings here is Capital Noodle Bar, which is related to Capital Seafood. The latter is Irvine's mediocre attempt at dim sum. Sadly, I've been here many times because, frankly there ain't much else as far as dim sum is concerned. I've never eaten the dinner food here, but I've not heard great things. So my expectations for the noodle bar weren't that high. However, after a couple visits, I think it's a good little addition to Irvine if you ignore the price tag.
Fried Fish Cake
Your standard fried fish cake. Nicely served with pickled cabbage and carrots
Juicy Pork Dumplings
Not sure why Big Head Talks-A-Lot would order this here, of all places. Not the best, but decent.
