Four Food Spots to Try in Anaheim

Adya - Anaheim Packing House

Chef Shachi Mehra offers contemporary interpretations of Indian street foods, tandoori specialties, and rich curries using fresh, sustainable ingredients, prepared simply. The menu offers the expected samosas and chicken tikka, along with lesser-known specialties such as pavs, the Bombay-style sloppy Joes of spiced vegetables or meat, and Indian beers as well. Check out the video below for a sneak peek at how Chef Mehra puts together her tasty bites. 440 S. Anaheim Blvd.



“A humble restaurant in the heart of Orange County serving up Filipino Soul Food.” Enjoy rice bowls with your choice of a classic Filipino entree such as crispy pork belly or chicken adobo over either white or brown rice. ($6.50 to $9) Looking for a more decadent treat? Try the loaded MFK Tots  which comes with your choice of pork belly adobo, bistek tagalog, chicken adobo or their famous sisig served over crispy tater tots with shredded cheese, lemon and sriracha crema, scallions, and garlic frito crumble. ($9). Also try the ube horchata, named Ubae Chatta “Purple Drank”. It’s a match made in heaven between the refreshing feel of horchata and the sweet taste of ube blended together.($2) 2620 W.
