Refreshing Summer Foods in Buena Park, CA

When the sun is shining and you’re on your third round of sunscreen application, you just might be on the lookout for a meal that will fuel you up for the rest of your day while also cooling you off. We’ve put together our Guide to Refreshing Summer Foods in Buena Park, CA to help you make your decision.
Superfood bowls at Protein Lab at The Source OC in Buena Park, CA

Izakaya Ichie
At Izakaya Ichie, there’s no better way to cool off on a summer’s day than with a cold plate of their signature Yellowtail Ginja. Spicy tuna with avocado wrapped in yellowtail paired with their premier imported Japanese sake is the perfect combination on a warm Southern California day.

Aji Limon
Refresh your palette with authentic Peruvian cuisine at Aji Limon. We highly recommend their Ceviche Mixto that comes with a mixture of white fish, shrimp, squid, baby octopus, and mussels topped off with the brightness of a lemon juice marinade.

Protein Lab
Nothing tastes quite as good on sunny afternoon than an Acai Superfood Bowl from Protein Lab. Their classic bowl comes with acai, strawberries, bananas, and granola drizzled in agave. For those who like to try something new, their menu has plenty of other takes on the more traditional bowl.
Gaucho Chop at Gaucho Grill in Buena Park, CA

Gaucho Grill
Gaucho Grill may be known for their mouthwatering selection of Argentine steaks, but they also have a wide variety of crisp salads for your enjoyment. The iconic Gaucho Chop is a local favorite with chopped romaine, napa cabbage, blue cheese, almonds, raisins, and a bacon vinaigrette.

La Huasteca
Spice lovers will fall head-over-heels in love with the Spicy Shrimp Aguachiles at La Huasteca. These freshly peeled shrimp are marinated in zesty lime juice with your choice of a spicy green or red sauce over the top.

Main St. Pho & Grill
When it’s just a bit too warm for a bowl of soup, Main St. Pho & Grill has lighter options that are sure to become your new summer staple. Their Vermicelli with Grilled Pork is a cold noodle dish served with lettuce, pickled daikon and carrots, cucumber, and tossed in a house-made fish sauce.

Kake Udon at Hiro Ramen & Udon in Buena Park, CA

Rock & Brews
The combination of the summer can be found at Rock & Brews in their Roasted Tomatoes and Burrata. Charred roasted grape tomatoes, burrata cheese, nut-free pesto oil, and basil are ready to be matched with their scrumptious parmesan butter toast that comes on the side.

Broken Yolk Café
If you’re looking to start the day off with something on the lighter side, order the Feta Avocado Toast at Broken Yolk Café. Each bite of their artisan bread topped with avocado, arugula, cherry tomatoes, feta cheese, and balsamic drizzle is heaven.

Hiro Ramen & Udon
If you’ve never tried cold noodles, the place to go is Hiro Ramen & Udon. Their Kake Udon noodles are served cold in their housemade kake broth and sprinkled with green onion. Additional toppings can be added as you like, including a soft boiled egg, corn, nori, garlic, and many more options.

Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner Restaurant
When you visit the famous Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner Restaurant, you’ll want to order the Tri-Berry “Boysenberry” Salad to get a taste of the little berry that started it all. The boysenberry is a blend of a raspberry, blackberry, and loganberry – all of which you will find make an appearance in this salad.
