OC Weekly's Description

Surfas Culinary District is a market in Costa Mesa. Take a Williams-Sonoma, mix it up with a Costco, add a dash of Smart & Final, season it with a little bit of Whole Foods, and you have Surfas. At its core, the place is a food hobbyist’s toy store where some major coin can be dropped on professional-grade equipment and supplies. Every conceivable gadget and doodad a chef, baker or restaurateur could ever need is here, from fancy cocktail skewers with those cute curlicue tops to a gigantic commercial mixer with a dough hook large enough to be mistaken for one of the Queen Mary’s propeller blades. Surfas also has a restaurant, which is a destination in and of itself, that makes one of the better burgers in the county. This is a serious adult burger—a burger that utilizes no less than a Kobe beef patty cooked to spec, stung with just the right amount of Point Reyes blue cheese, a measured smear of horseradish mayo, fistfuls of arugula, red onion and a slice of tomato. All of it is hugged by a shiny, well-toasted challah bun well-suited for the messy, juicy characteristics of the sandwich. It’s kind of expensive at nearly $13 a pop, but worthy.

    Free cooking demos on weekend check online for more info. They usually give a small coupon for attending.

    It's one of the best grill cheese sandwiches I have ever had. 2 bad it is so tiny & cost $7.45 so don't bother getting it at the grill.

    Great products, but they do not offer professional discounts :)
