Desert Moon Grill

Desert Moon Grill is a Middle Eastern restaurant in Anaheim. You know you’re eating at a serious food spot when the pita not only comes bloated with steam, but is also still dusted in flour. And while the shawerma, wraps and all the usual suspects please, go for the rarities: Start with muthawama, which is basically potato hummus with the garlic turned to 11, or makdous, pickled eggplants stuffed with walnuts and garlic, sprinkled in olive oil and salt, and as tart as kimchi. Try the Syrian quesadillas called toksha — pitas stuffed with beef or chicken and a salty Syrian cheese. Desert Moon cooks their meats on a wood-fired grill, and there's a full seafood menu — a rarity in the lamb/quail/chicken/beef-obsessed Little Arabia. There's even an Egyptian-style casserole that’s essentially a hamburger patty slathered in a tomato-tahini sauce — Hamburger Helper by way of Tahrir Square.
