All around the world, people find different reasons to go out to eat. Many eat simply for necessity, while others eat based on preference. When you break down the preferences, what reasons may you come across? Value? Quality? Location? Atmosphere? Regardless of the reason, we can all agree that going out to eat has turned into a staple in our lives, despite the notion that one can live an entire life without ever going out to eat. Once in a long while, you discover something that meets all the aforementioned criteria. When something sounds too good to exist, it usually comes with a drawback. This time, the drawback simply relates to time. While The Globe Dine Bar will last for a while, their monthly will fade away soon.

More than your typical gastropub, The Globe Dine Bar sets an international precedence in a local setting. Combining world flavors with terrific imported drinks, The Globe truly represents its namesake by bringing together cuisine from other countries to a small Southern Californian community. Every month, the chef travels to another country in search of inspiration for The Globe’s monthly special. February’s specials revolve around Chinese New Year, welcoming the year of the snake with three Asian-inspired dishes. Out of their monthly specials, their Beef Rib Nasi Goreng stands out the most. For $18, this massive plate comes with charred beef short ribs with a sesame, soy, and ginger glaze (Gedo-Gado) on a bed of Nasi Goreng, served with a side of vegetable salad with sweet chili dressing. Enough to feed 2-3 people, The Globe serves a generous portion of Korean-style on-the-bone beef short ribs, along with stringy vegetables with sweet chili sauce. On the other side of the plate lies a pile of Nasi Goreng, or Indonesian fried rice, which includes chicken, shrimp, and bacon lardons. Oh, and they top this off with a fried egg and include puff chips. From one corner to the other, this plate easily reaches two feet across. It boggles my mind how they can serve so much food for such a low price relative to how much food one would receive off this plate. Sadly, as a monthly special, this dish will not stay around for much longer. You have less than 10 days to head over to The Globe in Garden Grove to order this mammoth meal!
