5 Places to Eat and Drink in Huntington Beach, California

Surf City, USA. Sun, sand, and pretty awesome little restaurants: Huntington Beach draws tourists from all over the world, and many times, the big-name places, like BJ's or Fred's Mexican Food, will welcome you with a long wait for a table.

But no need to worry. We made our way up and down Main Street in Huntington Beach, just off Pacific Coast Highway, and picked out five of our favorite places that are a must if you venture to the coast anytime soon.

Sushi on Fire 301 Main St. #103 Huntington Beach, CA 92648 714-374-8885 Of course, sushi would be at the top of this list. Fresh seafood has never tasted or looked this good. Sushi on Fire has a menu full of specialty rolls that aren't baked or filled with cream cheese. Each roll is unique and does something special to the palate. The Refreshing Roll, for example, is just that: refreshing. Albacore, salmon, and yellow tail are rolled and topped with thin slices of lemon and jalapeño, and drizzled with a fresh cilantro sauce. Animal style, mostly known as the secret menu option at In-N-Out, is sashimi covered in an "animal style" sauce, dressed with crispy onions. It hasn't made its way to the menu yet, but none of the servers try to pretend like it doesn't exist.
