New Culinary and Fashion Destinations in Downtown Brea


Downtown Brea welcomes a new Thai eatery to its Birch Street Promenade. Family-owned and-operated, the restaurant has quickly become a local favorite, bringing classic dishes such as papaya salad ($12.95), pad thai ($15 to $18), tom yum koong ($17.95), and mango sticky rice ($11.95) to the mix. Pho options are also available on the fusion side of the menu. The kitchen takes pride in its authenticity, freshly crafting every meal from scratch. 215 W. BIRCH ST., 714-784-6178


Next door to Thai 7 Bistro is a new spot to satisfy your sweet tooth. What started as a small tea shop in Los Altos has grown to more than 40 locations nationwide. Co-founder Amy Lai heads the franchise’s research and development team, creating innovative boba teas inspired by her life and travels. A variety of classic and specialty signature drinks like Creamy Jasmine ($6), Honey Pear-adise ($7), and Guava Sunset ($6.50) grace the menu, as well as rotating seasonal varieties. 215 W.

Popping Yolk’s menu features many classic breakfast favorites, including eggs Benedict, crunchy French toast, omelets, and crepe and waffle options, but also plays with Asian inspired flavors in dishes such as the ube French toast ($13.50) and the kimchi Spam omelet ($18.50). Sandwiches, burgers, and salads are also available. 1160 E. IMPERIAL HIGHWAY, 714-784-6081
