Our Favorite Restaurants in Laguna Niguel

Perhaps most well-known for its famously extensive system of parks and trails, the masterfully planned community of Laguna Niguel has so much to offer to locals and guests alike. A community interest for nature and arts is celebrated with the beautiful Niguel Botanical Preserve and the Echoes & Visions Juried Fine Art Show. Such a busy and culturally rich city needs some good eats to enjoy too, and Laguna Niguel delivers. Here are 3 restaurants you should try whenever you’re in town!  

China Moon

From the 30+ years of culinary expertise brought to the table by Chef John, to every dish being individually crafted for every order, to the servers being meticulously trained by the Chens to offer the absolute best service, every visit to China Moon will be absolutely memorable. The team regularly receives well-earned praise, such as the prestigious Southern California Restaurant Writers Award.

From the delicious Mu Shu to the mouth watering Szechuan Pork and the all-important rice noodles, there’s a stunning dish for everyone on this masterful menu. If you’ve been looking for some great Mandarin and Szechuan cuisine, look no further!

Acai Republic

Immigrants especially know the yearning for traditional food, especially when only inauthentic copies or fusion is what’s available. That’s the passion behind Açaí Republic, founded by a Brazilian immigrant who came to the US to teach jiu jitsu.

Organic Açaí brought in directly from the Amazon and the best fruit come together to bring you a completely authentic Brazilian Açaí Bowl, as well as delicious smoothies and freshly-squeezed juices. Whether you just need to pop in for a quick smoothie, or you’d rather sit down for a Bowl, these are the perfect candidates for a refreshing and nutritious meal that is great fuel for any athlete.

Belgium Waffle Haus

Specialty coffees, Belgium Liege Waffles, and authentic Pearl Sugar imported directly from Belgium. Need we say more?

Belgium Waffle Haus is truly an experience, from the Prosciutto & Egg Waffle Sandwich, to the Tiramisu waffle made with house made tiramisu and dark chocolate, to the savory Smoke Salmon Waffle. After one visit, you’ll never see waffles the same way again.
