This article explores some of the best restaurants in Huntington Beach!
Huntington Beach will probably ring a bell if you are into surfing.
This popular beach town is situated on the west coast of California. The beach is definitely worth visiting during the summer, even if you aren’t interested in hitting the waves yourself.
One reason is the stunning cuisine available within city limits. If you find yourself in beautiful Huntington Beach, check out these great restaurants.
The list of restaurants in Huntington Beach has to start with Simmzy’s. I am a bit biased since the place is huge in Los Angeles’ South Bay area (where I live).
Well, get ready to have awesome sandwiches, tacos, burgers, and salads. They brew their own beer and have many other brands on tap.
I love their carnitas tacos, bacon blue deluxe burger, and Cubano libre sandwich.
Huntington Beach has restaurants to fit all sorts of taste buds. If you are a vegan, you want to pop by Secret Spot. The place serves stunning health food without it all seeming like kale chips are all you are getting. Whether you are a vegan or not, visit during breakfast hours and fill your stomach with mango, blueberry pancakes.
Would you like to enjoy some classic Mexican cuisine while starting at the Pacific Ocean? If the answer is ‘yes’, then head down to Sancho’s Tacos. The restaurant offers amazing tacos from fish to chicken. You shouldn’t say ‘no’ to a serving of nachos either, with a dollop of Pepper Jack as a side dish.
The Sugar Shack Café
The small, family-run business is everything great about Huntington Beach. It’s relaxed, fun, and simple. The atmosphere is welcoming and the food is surprisingly stunning in its simplicity. The bacon and cheese burrito tastes just as comforting as it sounds. The Sugar Shack Café also makes a mean serving of chili fries.
You can’t visit Southern California without a trip to a typical American burger joint. In Huntington Beach, the place should be 25 Degrees. The environment is almost as good as its food, with the staff making your experience pleasant. The must-have pick is the sweet potato fries together with a local craft beer.
Red Table is a fun place to visit, not least because of the décor. Everything there is picked with the color red in mind and the word red itself is an abbreviation of the words: relax, eat, and drink. We recommend coming out on a Sunday to feast on the Sunday brunch – Red Table’s chilaquiles are just too good to be true.
If seafood is more of your thing, then Slapfish is the best restaurant on the list. The restaurant also takes the environment seriously since all the fish available is sustainably sourced. The shrimp roll will take you by surprise and you will definitely want to visit this place a second time before your holiday comes to an end.
North Shore Poke Company
If you’ve not been able to experience Hawaii before, Huntington Beach will sort that out as well. At North Shore Poke Company, you can create your own poke bowl. You have control over the flavor (mix of sauces), type of fish, base, and extras. Vegan alternatives are available.
You can even enjoy poke as tacos, nachos, and sashimi sandwiches if you are looking for a refreshing twist on the classic.
Sushi On Fire
Another great seafood restaurant is Sushi On Fire. The food is fresh, the staff is welcoming and the service is perfect for a quick bite. The classic shrimp tempura is definitely worth ordering and if you want something a bit special, go for the fried banana dessert. If you are after something special and a bit different, select the Hawaiian Ceviche from the Specialties menu.
Sandy’s is a restaurant with the best location in the world. It’s situated right on the Huntington Beach waterfront, offering you a chance to enjoy the surfers while sipping on a cold beer. The food is not bad either, with fish and chips getting our vote for the best dish on the menu. The Kobe burger is also worth trying, together with a serving of their famous fries.
If you want to enjoy a great meal without breaking the bank, then the above restaurants offer plenty to choose from. While the prices differ, you can find affordable options to eat out on all.
Above all, enjoy the cuisine!
