Golf shirts, pants, and jackets ($20 to $80), stylish enough to wear on and off the course, come in bright shades—hot pink, mint green, and sunny yellow—
at this storefront for the popular Korean sportswear designer. 5121 Beach Blvd., 714-266-0118,

Sup Noodle Bar
The decor may be contemporary, but the pho ($7.50 to $10) that dominates the menu is traditional. Have it with filet mignon, thin-sliced chuck, or lamb shoulder. Or try the northern Vietnamese-style pho bac with wide, flat noodles. 5141 Beach Blvd., 714-521-2444,

Dami Sushi and Izakaya
Come for the $1 oysters at happy hour. Stay
for the chirashi, a bowl of vinegar-dressed rice with salmon, tuna, yellowtail, and shrimp sashimi ($20); and the Love Roll: salmon, tuna, avocado, and cucumber in soy paper ($15). 5151 Beach Blvd., 714-739-2537,

Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong
