Recs Needed for Anaheim

Wahine’s annual trade show is in Anaheim next week. What’s really good there and what makes it so? All ethnicities, genres, pricepoints/socio-economic strata are welcome. Artificiality and gimmickry, not so much.


In Anaheim itself, Napa Rose (in the Disney Resort itself) is really pretty good. Near by you’ll find The Ranch Restaurant, and a new, hip food court called The Packing House. There’s a Portillo’s there too. It’s the SoCal outpost of the Chicago outfit known for hot dogs and beef sandwiches. But… Anaheim is pretty close to some of the best Asian food in SoCal (not San Gabriel Valley good, but very good). Brodard (in Garden Grove is top-rated. Then there’s Taco Maria and Marche Moderne, both in Costa Mesa. Playground is in Santa Ana, along with some really good Mexican spots.

Nothing I’m mentioning is much more than 30 minutes from Anaheim’s Convention Center, but there’s lots more in the area.

Your close to Westminster and Garden Grove for some of the best Vietnamese…evah!
Taco Maria gets lots of love in the OC…

Aloha Kaleo!

EaterLA’s most recent list has great options for Vietnamese in the OC…just a stone’s throw away from Anaheim.
