Status Update: New Dining Coming to District Heritage in Tustin; Cats and dogs are now allowed on the Amtrak Surfliner

After a $4 million makeover, the District at Tustin Legacy is set to bring in some new tenants, including a handful of restaurants.

Renovations to the mall, which began in 2007, included new paint on the building’s façade and a refresh to the common areas using artificial turf and soft-seating.

Here’s a look at the new foodie lineup this summer and beyond…

Rakkan Ramen will open its first Orange County location in a shopping center along Jamboree Road. The Japanese restaurant takes place in late summer and specializes in ramen made from a plant-based broth using mushrooms and kelp.

Yomi’s Rice x Yogurt is also due out this summer and will offer a menu of purple rice and fresh yogurt smoothie drinks. The Australian brand bills itself as a healthier alternative to boba tea.

By fall, the district will also be home to Two Hands Corn Dogs, Korean-style street corn dogs. Its menu features whimsical corn dogs like the Crispy Rice Dog with crispy rice and the Two Hands Dog with sweet ranch sauce. Spicy dog ​​covered with hot Cheeto powder and spicy sauce.

Other additions in the past year include Fast Hot Pot (hot and spicy and customizable Sichuan Mala-tang hot pots), Casa del Sol (full-service Mexican fare with live mariachi music).

Two local Kohl’s stores will debut Sephora boutiques this Friday.

The stores in Whittier (15602 Whitewood Lane) and Tustin (18182 Irvine Blvd) are part of a nationwide collaboration between the two retailers as shopping habits continue to evolve in a pandemic economy.

Sephora in Kohl’s estimates that there will be boutiques inside 850 stores by 2023.

The 2,500-square-foot store-in-store looks like a smaller version of a traditional Sephora, stocking makeup, skincare, hair, and fragrance brand.
