Accessible by plane via John Wayne, Los Angeles, Long Beach, and other regional airports. Once at the airport, any taxi or limousine service will be able to bring you to Lake Forest. As well, Lake Forest is accessible by private car mainly through the "Y" (or the convergence of the I-5 and 405 freeways). Once there, Bake, Lake Forest, and El Toro exits all service Lake Forest.
The Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) does provide a pretty thorough bus service but it is still advised to rent a car.

For Italian food, try Peppino's - the original restaurant on Lake Forest near the I-5 or the one in the Foothill Ranch neighborhood.
For Peruvian, a good choice is Inca Mama's in Foothill Ranch . If you prefer oriental, try Diho Thai/Chinese, also on Lake Forest near the I-5, same shopping center as the original Peppinos.
For authentic El Salvadorian cuisine, try El Paraiso on the corner of Jeronimo and El Toro. The food is inexpensive and is quite delicious. The main El Salvadorian dish is the papusa, which is filling but not heavy and a lot less greasy than Mexican food.
For Mexican food, several options exist: El Conejito's on Ridge Route just East of Muirlands, offers delicious, inexpensive, yet at times greasy food. Just across Muirlands is Avilla's El Ranchito, a chain restaurant with a lively decor and cheap, tasty food. Finally, for a little more class, try Miguel's in the Foothill Ranch Town Center off Bake and Town Center Drive in the same parking lot as the theater.
