Best Middle Eastern Restaurants in Anaheim

Mediterranean cuisine is known for dishes in which three essential elements stand out: the olive tree, the wheat, and the vine. It is from these ingredients and animal source protein that a cuisine originating in the Mediterranean Basin takes shape. In Anaheim, some restaurants have endured this type of food and have reinvented it or prepared it in a traditional way to pay homage.

So, for any lover of Mediterranean food, we have this selection of restaurants with a gastronomic proposal that will make you fall in love.
