Papa Hassan's is a Middle Eastern restaurant in Anaheim. It is on Brookhurst Street, lost in a vast jungle of Middle Eastern stores and restaurants in the city's Little Arabia, squeezed in tight between a Sizzler and a hookah store. Try the shawerma, a wrap as refreshing as it is filling. There's the shrill of tomato, the spicy-but-sweet hits of onion and, in the background, the steady hum of beef. Though you'll taste hints of mint and tahini instead of Thousand Island, you'll find yourself lapping up the leftover drippings from the wrapping as though you just finished an In-N-Out Double-Double.
