With nearly 40% of its population being Asian, Irvine offers foodies true global cuisine, with a wide selection of delicacies from China, Taiwan, Japan, Vietnam and other distant shores.

Several restaurants that originated in Asia’s Pacific Rim can be found at Diamond Jamboree, a unique Southern California retail destination that brings together a variety of cuisines and international flavors. Three such restaurants include; Chef Hung Taiwanese Beef Noodle, Jinmen, Taiwan and 85°C Bakery, Bao-Ping, Taipei, and Curry House CoCo Ichibanya, Nagoya, Japan. Add to the mix Tokyo Table, a chic Japanese fusion eatery that draws a bustling crowd with classic plates and unusual specialties in an innovative setting.

Specializing in coffee, cakes, and breads, 85°C Bakery, a Taiwanese chain of coffee shops, opened in Irvine in 2009 as the first U.S. store.  Why 85°C? It is the ideal temperature to drink coffee. Their most popular beverage is the Sea Salt Coffee – slightly sweetened iced coffee topped with creamy foam whipped with sea salt, with semi-sweet chocolate powder sprinkled over the top of foam.
