Dining Guide for Families in Orange County

Fall Favorites at Mendocino Farms

We dined as a guest of Mendocino Farms

Mendocino Farms is one of our favorite places to have lunch during the weekend. The kids are always entertained with their outdoor foosball table, giant chalkboard wall and fun funky chairs. When the kids are happy..the parents are happy! This Fall season, Mendocino Farms is serving some delicious seasonally inspired sandwiches.



Our favorite Fall sandwich at Mendocino Farms is the Peruvian Steak Sandwich. The spicy sandwich is made with steak marinated in a spicy aji Amarillo sauce with Mendocino’s “Yellow Rooster Sauce” inside of grilled Drago Bakery torta bun. The steak is topped with Oaxacan cheese, herb aioli, red onions, tomatoes and shredded romaine lettuce. If you like a sandwich that boasts bold flavors, then this is the perfect item to order when dining at Mendocino Farms.




For a limited-time, families are invited to take part in their exclusive pastrami project with a 12-hour pecan wood smoked Texas “brisket” style cut meat. Inside of a piece of Drago Bakery Rye bread is a large helping of pastrami, cole slaw and a side of “Moppin’ Mustard Sauce.” We guarantee that you’ll never want to have a pastrami sandwich anywhere else again after having it at Mendocino Farms.



The top kid choice is the Smoked Turkey Romesco on a salty pretzel bun. The sandwich features a 6-hour pecan wood house smoked turkey breast with a traditional Spanish almond romesco sauce, a spicy harissa aioli, roasted tomatoes, red onions and Scarborough Farm’s baby arugula. The sandwich is large enough for your kids to share, and we recommend pairing it with one of their cold salads.




Since it still feels a lot like Summer in Orange County right now, we could not leave Menodicno Farms without having some of our favorite Summer Sandwich, the Caprese. The sandwich features local Gioia fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, marinated red peppers, basil pesto, Scarborough Farm’s greens and balsamic vinegar on a soft ciabatta bun.
