I absolutely love shopping at the Japanese market called Mitsuwa! The food court there is always clean and the selection of food stands is a few but so glad because its always so hard to choose where I want to eat! Their tea stand their is, in my opinion, better than Teavana. The cashiers and people there are very helpful and don't give me weird looks when I can't read Japanese! I will always be a customer here!

I think it s a wonderful place to live if you have the money for it. If I could afford to live here on my own I would but it is just way to expense. I love that i live a mile away from the beach and that I can walk to all my destinations. The weather is beautiful and probably the best in the United States, it's never too hot and it's never too cold. It's the perfect place to raise a family.
It's not dangerous living in Costa mesa. From personal experiences, just make sure your secure your belongings because petty crime is a possibility.
