Fans of Phans55 already know about the wonders of this chic and sexy Vietnamese bistro and bar with two OC locations: in Irvine (the mother ship with full bar and 17-FOOT screen TV) and Fullerton. Phans55 is all about celebrating life with healthy Vietnamese cuisine, and it’s a next generation eaterie focusing on the green movement: incorporating energy conservation and recycling, and cooking with organic produce and naturally, humanely raised meats.
Favorites from the menu include chicken curry; Chilean seabass with onions, Thai chilies, and caramel sauce; and the shaken beef.
Phans55 is open for lunch and dinner, and it recently added happy hour specials from 4 to 7:30 p.m. at both locations. Enjoy exotic cocktails made from premium liquors with freshest ingredients, like Miss Saigon made with KAI Lychee Vodka, the world’s first ultra premium rice vodka, handcrafted in Vietnam, distilled from rare yellow-blossom rice; Pomegranete martinis and more just $5; and you can try never before seen appetizers like grilled sugarcane scented shrimp rolls, vermicelli rolls, and vegetarian crepes with rice crepe, tree ear mushrooms, bean sprouts, and hand-made–to-order Vietnamese rolls at a discounted price.
The elegant lounge also offers boutique wines, and microbrews, Vietnamese iced coffee and natural handmade lime soda.
Open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday though Saturday; 5 to 9 p.m. Sunday. 6000 Scholarship Drive in Irvine. 949.724.1236. 1981 Sunny Crest Drive in Fullerton. 714.441.0714.
