Culinary school wasn’t enough of a learning experience for Hany Fadda. During the summers between his classical training at the California Culinary Academy, Hany traveled extensively throughout the Mediterranean and the Middle East. These experiences heavily influence the cuisine that he creates as the head chef of Tannins Restaurant and Wine Bar, although he also celebrates Orange County by featuring an extensive wine list that includes more than 40 different local wines by the glass.

These wines complement the contemporary bistro-style cuisine. Italian cuisine appears most prominently on the menus, and the chefs strive for authenticity by importing prosciutto and hand-making their own meatballs in-house. In addition to the assorted pasta dishes, the menus also feature a number of pizzas with toppings that include everything from sausage and roasted red peppers to roma tomatoes and sweet basil. Desserts such as traditional Sicilian cannoli or tiramisu provide a fitting coda to the casually refined meals.

The eatery’s dining room embraces a more classical elegance, with silver candelabras on several of the linen-draped tables. High ceilings and archways between rooms contribute to this vaguely regal setting, as do the thrones that surround each table.

Simply Fondue's intimate, chandelier-lit dining room plays host to tabletop pots that bubble with warm imported cheeses, oils, and broths. The restaurant's cheese fondues from Switzerland, the Mediterranean, and England allow diners to taste the world's flavors without having to lick every country's flag. The eatery also simmers traditional canola and broth fondue using individual "fondue grills," which sear each morsel for lighter munching. For each entree, chefs pair simmering helpings with platters of meat, seafood, or veggies, all of which can be altered upon request.

Many meals conclude with chocolate fondue, which features an impressive coterie of sweets such as pound cake, triple-chunk brownies, peanut-butter balls, and fresh pineapple chunks plucked from the hats of local conga dancers. The dining experience stays casual throughout with plush red booths and upholstered bar stools set against textured stone walls.

Boasting an eclectic menu, Red Velvet serves flavorful Far East dishes in a casual, inviting atmosphere. Inaugurate an epicurean expedition with Thai-style chicken-satay skewers ($3.95 for two pieces) or jasmine sizzling-rice soup ($6.95). Fork wielders can point prongs toward the Chinese chopped chicken salad ($6.45) or duel with the spears of the asparagus shrimp ($10.95). Complete your taste trek with sweet banana xangos, a caramel-banana cheesecake that impersonates a spring roll, cloaks itself in cinnamon sugar, and stages a rendezvous with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The menu also includes an expansive selection of organic loose-leaf teas imported from China ($2.95 per cup).

Skimmer's beguiles skeptical taste buds with fresh ingredients, artisan breads, and piping-hot paninis. All paninis are served on sourdough bread filled with Boar's Head meats, and grilled on a cast-iron panini press without oil or butter. Hot-sauce connoisseurs can try the "Screaming! Buffalo Chicken" panini ($7.99), packed with buffalo chicken, Tabasco mayo, and Skimmer's own hot-wing sauce, so hot and spicy it smokes hummingbirds out of their cocoons. In between panini savorings, munch on Skimmer's crouton fries ($2.99), served with a chipotle dipping sauce. Salad scarfers get their fill with the big city chef salad ($9.25), with bacon, ham, and turkey politely mingling with veggies, which tops the salad menu. Mission Viejo diners can complete meals with milky house-made Italian gelato, whipped up to a thick, delectable state, just like Italy itself.

Thai Juan On features a menu that is chock-full of authentic Thai taste foundations, slightly altered to fit the grooves of American Thai eaters' taste buds. Kick things off with the likes of crispy noodle/mee krob ($6.95), before diving mouth-first into the rest of the menu. The dinner terrain covers more than 40 soup, noodle, rice, and entree dishes, including the magnificent noodle/mee phat num prik poa, which melds egg noodles with shrimp, scallop, calamari, and veggies ($15.95). The mermaid's dowry/pla prik lets diners sample the spicy taste of grilled sole, bell peppers, carrots, mushrooms, and onions before awkwardly explaining to their parents that they're in love with a human-fish hybrid. Thai Juan On's daily lunch menu features midday palate jolts like the Crying Tiger ($9.95)—grilled beef with spicy lime sauce—and the Red Devil ($10.95), spicy beef masaman curry with potato and onion.

Flavors of San Juan Capistrano’s tours explore two somewhat different things: food and history. You’ll be able to expand both your palate and your historical know-how on each casual, fun tour, so you can ultimately get a better understanding of San Juan Captistrano as a whole, which was built by some of the earliest inhabitors of California. Groups of up to 12 people will go to food tastings at renowned area restaurants such as Hidden House Coffee and Mission Grill. Between restaurants, you’ll take in local lore during visits to historical spots.

With advanced notice, the 3-4-hour tours can accommodate vegetarians and Spanish-speaking people, and groups with at least eight people can arrange private tours. Certain locations also offer beer, wine, and fork tastings for an additional fee.
