Eat Chow

Californian in Newport Beach

Hidden a block behind W Coast Hwy, Eat Chow's crowd is equal parts tatted hipsters and ladies who lunch, which makes it very Newport indeed. They all queue happily for rib-eye Thai beef salads, grilled-salmon tacos with curry slaw, and bodacious burgers like the Chow BBQ burger with homemade barbecue sauce, smoked Gouda, crispy onions and more. Groovy indie-rock soundtrack.

There's another location in Costa Mesa.
