The vast cuisine choices around Anaheim wonderfully reflect the area's ethnic diversity. Along Santa Ana Canyon Road and East La Palma Avenue, you find down-home barbecue, authentic Chinese cuisine, pizzerias and Mexican grills.
Skip the mundane fast-food joints, and try a Turkish meal. DonerG Turkish & Mediterranean Grill on East Ball Road holds a proud spot in northeast Anaheim
as one of the best places to satisfy your hunger. The chicken pita served with the signature DonerG sauce blows patrons away. Don't miss the iskander kebab, a meal of tender beef in iskander sauce served with yogurt and roasted veggies. DonerG doesn't leave vegetarians out. The Dalma, a traditional Mediterranean dish of grape leaves stuffed with rice and herbs, satisfies the palette of those who don't consume meat.
Luigi's D' Italia reigns supreme, even with native Italians. Start with garlic bread and dipping oil or an order of perfectly battered calamari. You can't go wrong with a traditional margherita pizza topped with roma tomatoes and fresh basil.
When you're in the mood for good appetizers and a night of dancing, head to Xalos NIghtclub & Lounge on North Kraemer Boulevard. With fewer bars on the northeast end of town, Anaheim locals frequent Xalos to enjoy its bumping music and array of drinks. Known to have people on the dance floor throughout the night, this local hot spot provides a new experience every time the sun goes down.
If sweets tempt you, drop by OMG Dessert Lounge to feed your cravings. You don't have to be a kid to go crazy over the watermelon creamsicle or the chocolate chip whoopie pie. Locals of all ages enjoy this unique dessert bar on South Anaheim Boulevard.
