Xa Sweet & Savory Café
Orange, CA 92868
OC Weekly's Description
Xa offers seven flavor paths for your chicken, pork or fish, everything from a simple herbes de Provence, with hints of thyme and tarragon, to a Mexican adobo, humming with cumin and oregano, to a Japanese togarashi powder full of red pepper flakes and sesame seeds. Your chosen spice rub will cloak a piece of protein that’s, for the most part, unadorne. Sauce would only obfuscate and conflict with the modular way it’s supposed to pair with sides that complete your meal—a meal that, by the way, costs a total of $8.25 for a composed, artfully presented plate more apt for a restaurant that's candle-lit and waiter-attended.
