On the Happy Diner menu, there's a jalapeno burger named for the Port Police and a chicken and vegetable soup named for Congresswoman Janice Hahn. But that's not because those people more well-liked or because they tip in gold ducats. Rather, they once placed custom orders at the restaurant and the diner's other guests just happened to love the results. Actually, anyone can get a dish named after them if it becomes popular here, but the main takeaway is how the chefs are willing to experiment and adjust any dish to your specific requests. Even if you don't come up with your own tweaks, their creativity is what's behind the new dishes that pop up on the menu from week to week, adding to an already robust selection of breakfast, lunch, and dinner favorites.
