Iron Chef Café uses the heat of the wok, grill, and frying pan to creatively fuse the diverse flavors of traditional Asian cuisines. The menu is peppered with dishes made with the freshest possible ingredients, never with added MSG. Start with an order of crispy Asian lettuce wraps with chicken ($6.29) or shrimp ($7.49) or a plate of crab wontons ($3.95/four), and cleanse your palate with a warm bowl of egg-flower soup ($2.29/small). Specialty dishes from the Japanese grill, served with your choice of brown or white rice, satisfy savory seekers with teriyaki and hula bowls topped with chicken, steak, shrimp, or tofu ($5.49–$7.29) and mixed tempura ($6.79). Meanwhile, a wide variety of fresh wok bites delights with classic stir fries including crispy orange-peel chicken ($7.25), Thai-basil tofu ($6.69), and Mongolian beef ($7.95). For lighter fare, throw back a few fresh sushi rolls ($3.99–$7.49), or indulge in an Iron Chef signature dish such as the honey-walnut shrimp ($9.95) or spicy eggplant ($7.45), both served with brown or white rice. The café also offers a selection of low-carb and dim-sum bites.
Led by Dr. Vance T. Nguyen, the staff at Chino Spectrum Optometry operate advanced equipment and take a caring approach to prove their dedication to helping clients discover clearer vision. The practice offers a comprehensive spread of preventative services, including cataracts and glaucoma tests, as well as pre- and post-operative care for laser treatments. They also maintain a selection of more than 1,000 designer frames from Calvin Klein, Gucci, and other brands, which can be fitted with prescription lenses from their in-house labs instead of colorless panes of rock candy.
At East Vale Optometry, Dr. Vance T. Nguyen oversees a stock of more than 1,000 designer frames. Brands such as Gucci, DKNY, and Calvin Klein line the shelves, ready to be fitted with prescription lenses and worn as both a vision aid and a fashion accessory. However, Dr. Nguyen's dealings have to do with more than trends. With nearly two decades of private practice under his belt, he cares for eyes with preventative and curative treatments. He can test for glaucoma, address infections, and provide pre- and post-op care for Lasik patients, as well as fit contact lenses. He and his staff are also multilingual, and accommodate English-, Spanish-, and Vietnamese-speaking clients.
Dena M. Mintz, O.D. follows in her late father's footsteps. Dena has been practicing since 1988 and has made a name for herself as a specialist in contact-lens fitting. She and her staff of optometrists, opticians, and optometric technicians are also fully licensed and equipped to offer evaluations, treatments of eye diseases, and digital photography that may detect conditions that include glaucoma or macular degeneration.
The office stocks modern technology such as premium options of lenses on the market, including Zeiss and Varilux products, and the staff excels in pairing frames from designers such as Valentino, Salvatore Ferragamo, Nike, Sean John, and more with clients' facial features. The result is glasses that give new dimension to personal looks and help patients see the most subtle detail, whether it's of a painting, a concert stage, or the informational brochure on how to clean their new lenses.
Since 1997, board-certified ophthalmologist Dr. Ferzaad Moosa has performed more than 60,000 LASIK procedures, gaining a level of expertise that inspired Top 10 LASIK to name him one of California's 10 best surgeons. After receiving his MD from Harvard Medical School, the doctor served an internship in Internal Medicine at UCLA and completed a three-year residency at the esteemed Doheny Eye Institute.
Dr. Moosa corrects nearsightedness and farsightedness with increasingly advanced laser systems, employing wavefront-optimized technology to automatically compensate for the curvature of the cornea while reducing negative side effects such as poor night vision or spontaneous disco-ball mirages. The machine also tracks the position of the eye 200 times every second, instantly pausing if it moves out of range.
Focus Vision Optometric Center's optometrists Jane H. Liang and Cheryl Yu help their patients see the world with newfound clarity. Using computer-assisted equipment, they find the precise prescriptions for glasses and contacts. They can also treat chronic eye conditions such as glaucoma and uncontrollable laser vision. Accommodating as many patients as possible, Focus Vision Optometric Center's staffers speak Cantonese, English, Mandarin Chinese, and Spanish.
