Chef Abel Vargas

ABEL VARGAS
EXECUTIVE CHEF | MESA

Chef Abel believes food is the answer to all; whether you’re happy, sad or somewhere in between, he believes food has the power to change a mood. Abel Vargas has a new residency as a chef, and is bringing an updated perspective to Mesa’s menu with fresh flavors of summer.

Since the age of 15 Chef Abel knew he had a future in food; his family gatherings would revolve around sharing meals, and he knew it would translate into a career. He attended culinary school and assisted with building kitchens from the ground up to immerse himself in the environment. Prior to taking his role at Mesa in March of 2018, he held the position of Executive Sous at Restaurant Habana in Irvine, and was involved during the opening phases of the new location. Prior to that he worked in kitchens throughout Los Angeles, San Diego, Miami and even Germany for a bit. He has put in an abundance of time and effort making food he’d be proud to serve and eat. Chef Abel Vargas draws inspiration from his daily personal emotions; “Every dish on the menu was created on a different day, and was based on what I was feeling at that moment.”  Most of all, he is motivated by the fact that he feels his life purpose is to be a chef.

Chef Abel has many people to thank for all his endeavors but wants to especially thank all the past and present chefs, cooks and dishwashers he’s been able to work with. He is grateful to have learned so much through his fellow colleagues and really believes he wouldn’t be where he’s at without them.

With his new abode at Mesa, Chef Abel is excited to bring new dishes to the restaurant; smaller plates and seasonal flavors will grace the menu. The updated tapas-style menu allows guests to have an opportunity to try more dishes, without having to settle on a large entree. Look for globally inspired flavors based on Chef Abel’s mood at Mesa.

Yalcin & Sam of DönerG

Yalcin Aslan and Samuel Lee
DönerG

A Turkish staple in Orange County is DönerG; a menu filled with items like the Instabowl, Doner Saltado, Doner kebabs, OG Fladenbrot, pita sandwiches… the list goes on. Yalcin Aslan and Samuel Lee are the creators behind this beloved brand. Their story is definitely intriguing when you find out how they met - Yalcin is from Turkey and came over to the United States to pursue a degree in business and Samuel was born and raised in Orange County. They both attended Cal State Fullerton where they both happened to be in the same class on the same consulting project… and as they say, the rest is history. Yalcin saw the lack of doner kebabs in Orange County and wanted to open a concept and Sam wanted to help turn that idea into a reality. Over the course of 8 years, Yalcin and Sam have been able to conceptualize, re-conceptualize and brand DönerG as THE Turkish staple in Orange County. Now, with 4 locations under their belt, they’re ready to open up another concept in the heart of Tustin called Utopia Caffé, a cafe inspired by their love for London and European cuisine.

Yalcin and Sam have been business partners for 8 years and are committed to themselves, each other and the successes in their future concepts. They make a great pair when it comes to running a business; they are both like-minded in knowing what they want, what they want to create, and overall, provide excellent customer service and fresh, delicious foods to their guests. Find DönerG in Irvine, Anaheim, Lake Forest and Santa Ana for your doner kebab fix.

Yalcin & Sam of Utopia European Caffé

YALCIN ASLAN AND SAMUEL LEE
UTOPIA EUROPEAN CAFFÉ

A new European inspired cafe is coming to The District at Tustin and the mastermind behind DönerG is creating it! Yalcin Aslan conceptualized the idea of a European inspired cafe long ago, and is finally turning that dream into a reality. Picture quaint cafe corners to indulge in treats, coffee and tea in the heart of Orange County, but feels like a cafe you’d find in Europe! Yalcin began his journey 8 years ago after taking a business class at Cal State Fullerton; there, he met Sam Lee, a savvy business mastermind. Yalcin and Sam got along so well Yalcin seeked out Sam to help him develop his idea. Now, 8 years later, Yalcin has successfully opened DönerG with Sam running the concept as CEO. Again, with Sam’s help of developing and Yalcin’s creative ideas, Utopia European Caffé is the next business to make its mark in Southern California.

The idea behind Utopia European Caffé comes from the lack of European inspired cafes in Orange County. Yes, there there are coffee shops, places to grab breakfast and hang out, but there aren’t places that allow for a full immersive experience as if you were in Europe at a neighborhood cafe, and Yalcin and Sam are executing that ideation. Breakfast in Europe is a way to experience high quality coffee, food and service with a healthy and fresh twist compared to the classic American breakfast of pancakes and eggs. The idea is to give guests a different alternative to their usual coffee, breakfast or lunch spot. Yalcin wants this space to be where guests can bring their whole family for a long breakfast while enjoying the atmosphere, each other and the quality service, coffee and delicacies.

Yalcin and Sam are so excited for their new concept Utopia. It’s been a vision that is slowly coming to fruition, and all the hard work will be a milestone and set the standard for how they open new concepts and stores. Yalcin is very excited to bring a whole new experience to Orange County and give people a different alternative to standard coffee and breakfast spots. Look out for Utopia European Caffé coming this summer at The District at Tustin Legacy!

Tony Nguyen of Supernatural Sandwiches

TONY NGUYEN
SUPERNATURAL SANDWICHES | 4TH ST MARKET

What started as an experiment in a home kitchen has become a popular San Diego staple of fresh seafood sandwiches, now moving a little north to the DTSA community. Enter: Supernatural Sandwiches. If you haven’t heard of them, just head to Zagat, search 14 Must-Try Lobster Rolls Across the U.S. and Supernatural Sandwiches will pop up. Tony Nguyen, one of the creators of the movement, didn’t just get into making sandwiches, he worked towards a bigger goal. Starting as a busboy at Soup Plantation and then moving around in corporate America, he grew tired and was no longer passionate in food sales. He found himself having the urge to create and open his own restaurant. During a casual trip to a local seafood restaurant, inspiration struck; Tony wanted to create fresh (not fried) seafood sandwiches using local, sustainable ingredients featuring flavors inspired by Japan, Hawaii, Mexico and Italy. And so, the journey began.

In 2012 he and the team would meet every week to test flavor combinations in the kitchen. Once they felt it was perfected, they set up shop at their local farmers market to sell sandwiches and get the Supernatural name out there. One sandwich in particular, The Siren (to lure you in with its beauty and delectable taste), helped set off their momentum. Sandwiches were flying off the grills into customer’s hands at the farmers market and Tony and the team realized it was time to establish a brick and mortar location. They opened up shop in San Diego and with the rush of social media marketing and the popular demand of fresh seafood sandwiches, they then had to open an even bigger location neighboring location to meet all the demand. Most recently they’ve opened up shop at 4th Street Market, the popular food hall in downtown Santa Ana, to show Orange County what their fresh seafood sandwiches are all about.


Tony is super proud of his business ventures and accomplishments thus far and gives much credit to his business partner Anthony. The tough times, hard work, and determination has also landed them on the cover of San Diego magazine as one of the Best Restaurants in San Diego, 2015. Tony and the team are stoked to be part of the Santa Ana community and are ready to share the popular sandwiches that brought their vision to fruition as well as some brand new items . Check them out at 4th St Market and grab an Aphrodite, made with shrimp and bacon grilled cheese, or perhaps The Siren, the crowd-favorite that led them to victory and the success that is Supernatural Sandwiches.

Chad Aldrich of GRAZE

Chad Aldrich
GRAZE CRAFT Burgers | 4th St Market

Graze Handcrafted Burgers is one of the newest food concepts to land at 4th Street Market in Downtown Santa Ana. They serve up high quality bundles of meat, cheese and buns to tantalize those taste buds. Chad Aldrich, the creator of Graze, grew up in the hospitality industry, starting as a dishwasher and naturally moving up the hospitality ladder. A passion for tasty food and customer satisfaction is Chad’s drive in creating flavors unique to his restaurant concepts.

In 2015, Chad and his wife Makara opened up a food truck called the Coconut Truck, offering Asian-inspired street food such as rice bowls with lemongrass steak and coconut shrimp, chili garlic wings, ribeye steak melts, oxtail fried rice, garlic shrimp noodles, and plenty more. The Coconut Truck was awarded best Food Truck in 2015 by OC Weekly, which Chad and Makara are thrilled about. Owning a food truck is fun, but having an award for that food truck is even more fun! So, Chad wanted to bring a whole new concept to DTSA using his knowledge and expertise. This time around, instead of serving up Asian-inspired street food, he’s bringing handcrafted burgers to the market. Chad is excited to be part of 4th Street Market because of the individuality the food hall features, and all the eclectic culinary offerings throughout the space. The goal of Graze is to bring high quality and affordable burgers to the downtown Santa Ana food scene. Gone are the days of buying burgers for $15 and Chad wants to bring the same concept of decadence, but at a more manageable price, so everyone can enjoy.
