La Capilla Mexican Restaurant: Great Mexican Restaurant
We wanted a mexican meal, and the hotel desk lady said she'd been eating at La Cappilla for 20 years. Best recommendation we had all vacation! Their chips and salsa are awesome; best salsa I've ever had at a restaurant. Lots of food for a bargain price. I had a combo meal with a "small" tostada with plenty of shredded beef and a good chile rellano, came with beans, rice, sour cream and guacamole. I couldn't eat it all, but wished I could. The service was unbelievable; they were practically lined up 3 in a row to serve water, chips & salsa, drinks, and take our order. Extremely efficient and friendly. We didn't even spend $10 per person, but tipped well for the service. If we lived in Huntington Beach, I'm sure we'd eat at La Cappilla at least every other week.
Favorite Dish: The best salsa; lots of onion and cilantro. The guacamole was excellant, too.

Tsunamis: Crunchy Rolls!!
Tsunamis is a great little Japanese / Sushi spot in Huntington Beach. Monday nights here get really crowded and the wait time is long, so better get here early. Along with sit down, and a Sushi bar they also have Teppan Grill. The rolls here are a good size with thick cuts of sushi and not too much rice. My favorite roll here is the Crunchy Roll. I think they make the best crunchy rolls. You defintely have to try those. All there other rolls are good to. The teppan chefs are really cool and give a good show. There is also a full bar here. If i remember correctly crunchy rolls during happy hour cost around 7-8$ and well worth it.
Dukes is located in a great place. Its right in front of the Huntington beach Pier and across from main street. It has great views of the Pacific Ocean. The food here is excellent. Ive eaten at the Dukes in Hawaii more times than here, but i think i like the food here a little bit more. I forgot the name of the dish here, but its chicken and beef skewers with vegetables and rice. This is excellent. The chicken is great and meat is so tender. I definitely recommend this dish. I believe it costs around 16$
