Spectacular Sushi in Anaheim

January 4th, 2016

You’re on a roll in Anaheim, with some of the best sushi in southern California just a few miles from the hotel. Orange Roll and Sushi is a local staple, featuring just as many classic rolls as inventive, fusion style options. Miyako is a Japanese favorite that serves a lot more than sushi, yet their perfect rolls are what keep diners coming back time and time again. Try Sushi Teriyaki for a quick and tasty treat or Sushi Yun for specialty rolls in a quaint setting.

Biyako offers a simple setting for fantastic Japanese cuisine, including mouthwatering sushi rolls. Sato Sushi features some of the most creative rolls in town, alongside staples that everyone loves. Head to Kaori Sushi for traditional Japanese fare done right or Chomp Rockin’ Sushi & Teppan Grills to add a little theatrical flare to your outing.

Roll With It!

Sake Sushi and Grill has (you guessed it!) an impressive sake menu—the perfect pairing for any roll. At Sushi Noguchi, you can enjoy a designer space that even attracts the occasional celebrity. Koisan Sushi & Japanese Cuisine is the place for semi-formal rolls done right.

Whether you prefer The Red Thai Room, Fish in a Bottle Sushi and Grill, or Shark Sushi (famous for sake bombs and specialty rolls), the world is your oyster (or fish) in Anaheim!

Bar Hop Like an Anaheim Local

January 3rd, 2016

The most family-friendly place on earth surprisingly has a very impressive nightlife scene, too! If this is an adult trip (or after the kids are in bed!) there are plenty of bars, lounges, clubs and taverns nearby. Start the night at The Cellar, a fine French dining establishment with (no surprise here) a great wine list, fine cocktails, and the perfect place to pair fantastic fare with a drink or two. Then it’s on to Bottoms Up Tavern, a local neighborhood bar that’s tucked into a strip mall (you wouldn’t think the two would go together but you’d be wrong!).

Fire and Ice Grill and Bar is a casual space with an open grill, perfect for winding down on those balmy California nights. Orange County Mining Co., don’t let the name fool you, is a favorite bar with live music on some nights, an extensive menu, and great service.


Cheers to That!

Yost Theatre is a local entertainment venue where you can get some strong drinks while taking in the entertainment. Check to see who’s performing when you’re in town. At Original Mike’s you can get some stellar burgers and ice cold pints. The North Left is an unpretentious hot spot with American food, cold beers, and absolutely no relation to the Kardashians! Karl Strauss Brewing Company is where you can go for local, craft beers in an elevated environment.
