Because not everything closes at 8 p.m.

We’ve all been there. It’s 9 p.m. and you suddenly have a craving for sushi. Or a doughnut. Or both. Despite the misconception that everything in Orange County shuts down early, there are a ton of spots that are perfect for those late night snacks.

Open until midnight, Honda-Ya is perfect for those late night ramen cravings. Other standouts on the menu are the miso and yakitori, but the best part? The food is brought out quickly, so you never have to wait long to stuff your face.

There is no better late night food than carne asada fries, and Taqueria Tapatia has amazing carne asada fries. It’s also open on Friday and Saturday until 4 a.m. so you never have to go to bed hungry for al pastor tacos. They’re truly doing the Lord’s work.

Just got kicked out of the bar? Head to Laventina’s. Newport Beach is the place to go for late night snacks, and Laventina’s is the queen of them all. Try the cheesy bread or grab a slice – you seriously can’t go wrong.

Urban Seoul

Urban Seoul is open most nights until 11 p.m. and has a great Taco Tuesday special. But if you’re tired of tacos (heathen!), try the gogi sliders, kalbi burger or elote. Urban Seoul is the perfect place to go with friends and split a bunch of dishes.

Can’t sleep? Grab a Cali burrito from Cali Tacos – it’ll put you in a heavenly food coma. For fellow enthusiasts of carne asada fries, this place is another must-try, too.
