Formerly named Dairy Valley because so many dairy farms are established inside its borders, Cerritos is a small southwestern California city that packs a big culinary punch. Diners can choose from one of many Mexican, Thai, Italian, Japanese, American, Chinese, Mediterranean, Korean and Filipino restaurants in the area. Additionally, specialized seafood and barbecue eateries produce tremendous meals that are sure to satisfy big appetites. There's a food for every type of eater to enjoy in Cerritos. You'll find that it isn't easy to pinpoint the city's specialty dishes (because there are so many), but the honor probably belongs to each style of sushi as an abundance of Cerritos establishments offer top-quality variations of the Japanese raw fish preparation. Try to save room for California's famous fish tacos. You'll be glad you did!
