Rodeo 39 in Stanton is a new food hall like no other in Orange County. Its soft opening has attracted many already, and with its grand opening tomorrow (Oct 17 at noon) this will undoubtedly become one of the hottest destinations for food lovers all across the county.
Here are some of the delicious fare you can expect to find:
My First Kiss
Grab a coffee here as soon as you enter. The creative beverages are sure to be a hit. This beautiful Orange Rosemary Latte is a lovely beverage with house-made orange rosemary syrup and garnished with a torched rosemary sprig and orange peel.
The Pvsta Lab
The pasta is made in-house and it is absolutely fantastic. I tried the Half Tail Lobster Gnocchi and the gnocchi was definitely on point but unfortunately, the lobster was rubbery. I am looking forward to trying some other pastas next time I visit.
This was one of my favorites! It is difficult to find Lao cuisine in OC, and when I do, it’s usually a sit-down restaurant. I love that I can order Laotian BBQ here. The Lao Beef Jerky is delicious — not super dry and wonderfully seasoned. I also tried the Lao BBQ Mix, which is great if you can’t decide what you want to order.
Banh Xeo Boys
These guys are also at 4th Street Market, and has quickly become one of my favorite places to get these delicious Vietnamese crepes. I have tried every single one now, and my favorites are the shrimp and pork, as well as the vegetarian option.
RTE (Ready To Eat)
My first time trying these Latin/Asian skewers and I was pleasantly surprised by how tasty they are. Chef Simon is Panamanian Chinese and his menu is a good testament to his roots. The skewers are cooked-to-order, and the combo comes with tostones (smashed fried plantains). I am also a huge fan of his chimichurri sauce!
This Hawaiian offering is already getting a lot of buzz. They seem to be one of the most popular, with a line during rush hours. The Butter Katsu is phenomenal! I loved the perfectly crispy chicken katsu, served over a bed of rice. Unfortunately, I didn’t care for the musubi as much.
Made-to-order onigiri is always fun and Tenori’s is a good option when looking for a quick bite.
Oi Asian Fusion
Craving Filipino fare? This is the right place for you. Adobo Bowl with braised pork belly, adobo sauce and soft boiled egg over a bed of rice hits the spot! The adobo isn’t as vinegary as traditional adobo (or adobo I make at home), but flavor-wise, I have no complaints whatsoever.
Nandomo by Hironori
I have no words. This is the piece de resistance of Rodeo 39! The Nandomo Black Ramen is OUTSTANDING! The broth is intensely rich, while the noodles are bouncy and springy. It was one of the most pleasurable eating experiences in a very long time. If you only eat one thing at Rodeo 39, make it Nandomo!
