Where to go for a weekend in Anaheim area?
..."I'm from Boston, so offering I wouldn't normally be able to find up here"...
That's always a good idea; but, I've never been to Boston so I went to the MenuPages for Boston to see what you did have. Here are the number of cuisine restaurants represented that stood out to me out of the 1,240 restaurants listed:
44 = Thai
42 = Mexican
16 = Vietnamese
1 = German
1 = African
1 = Persian
So the top 3 are available in Boston, they might be better here but still available there, so I'll concentrate on the 2nd 3.
German - I will 3rd the rec for Jagerhaus in Aneheim cause it's close, afforadable, and serves 3 meals a day.
African - The one place in Boston features Tunisian, Algerian, & some Moroccan so hopefully you'll have access to a car and can drive over to:
Springbok - South African
423-A Shoreline Village
Or, if your planning a drive down the coast:
1740 S. Pacific Coast Highway

Persian - In Orange County, I'm clueless so I'll suggest something you probably don't have anything like in Bean Town:
Honda Ya - Asian small plates (Tapas?) - Dinner only?
556 El Camino Real
Read the linked blogger's detailed and many pictured reports. There are 2, just scroll down past the first one:
Then here's a report from one who acted on that blog-review:
The first thing that comes to mind is Thai Nakorn in Garden Grove [http://orangecounty.citysearch.com/profile/179551/]. The best thai in the southland. For a unique experience, I would also recommend Park Avenue in stanton [http://www.parkavedining.com/]. Lastly, OC has some of the most legit vietnamese in the country, and tons of it, if you are so inclined.
