Mexican/Chinese/Vietnamese/Other Near Disneyland

Calvinist Dec 11, 2008 03:25 PM

Our family is going to be staying across the street from Disneyland for two nights a week from Sunday.

Anyone got any tips from the closest non-Disney places of note?

We live in San Francisco and regularly go to Mexican, Central American, Vietnamese, Cantonese, Hunan, etc., places with our 8 year-old son. So we’re looking for some options that would be easy to get to after a day of running around the park.

Thanks for any pointers!

    Santa Ana seems to be a gold mine. El Rincon Chilango will not dissappoint in comparison to Huarache Azteca and other Bay Area Mexican board favorites:

      That does look REALLY good.

      Little Saigon, one of the densest Vietnamese communities outside of Vietnam, is about 15 minutes from Disneyland. Go west about 2 miles from Harbor and South about 5 miles from Katella and you'll be there.

        Thanks. We used to live in Orange County and frequented Little Saigon. It would be quite nice to go back but I'd love to find something closer.

          Although, please note that is pretty close, so it might work. Thanks!
