Citrus City Grille {Orange, CA}

Tucked away in the heart of Orange County, is the Orange Circle. It's a quaint neighborhood filled with friendly people, antique marts, and a vast variety of restaurants. The charm from the 1940s originated buildings are unbelievable but if you aren't a frequent flyer, you may still be very familiar with the city. You may recognize the benches in the center of the circle as the bench Forrest Gump once waited for a bus on, or the restored Army Navy store as the one the boys from That Thing You Do worked in during their days trying to make it as "The Wonders." You'd be surprised by the many things you could find in the Circle, but what's more surprising is the amount of great restaurants one can find in such a small radius.

One of these restaurants is The Citrus City Grille:

The main highlights of Citrus City Grille were the desserts. After a large, bloated-stomach inducing meal consisting of a Kobe Beef Cheeseburger accompanied by thin-cut fries, there was no way we were going to leave without getting our hands on some dessert, no matter how much our stomachs may have protested.

1. Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee: The epitome of a creme brulee. It was rich and as smooth as velvet. My favorite part: cracking the perfectly bruleed top with the back of my spoon (just like Amélie).

2. Grand Marnier Souffle: Never did it once fall! It was light and airy and served with a raspberry sauce and freshly whipped cream. No wrong can be done with a raspberry sauce, let me tell you that. But the cream? It put me over the edge of ecstasy, so simply sweet and thick, almost like ice cream!
