Tanor Mediterranean Grill is a Persian restaurant in Anaheim. Tanor’s setup ensures that disparate tribes flock here and get what they’re looking for. It’s open from seven in the morning until midnight, attracting the dawn shift and Disnerds after the park closes. Most of the food is in buffet trays, the easier for the unitiated to quickly grasp the intricacies of Persian food. Breakfast brings burritos, hot pockets, pancakes and even omelets, with a drink case keeping water, orange juice and sodas for people who’d rather have Subway next door. And then we get to the actual Persian meals—glorious, fluffy saffron rice, crunchy tabbouleh, Greek-style falafels, shawerma shavings, and juicy koobideh Americanized as a “skewer plate.”
