Asked via Facebook, but I'm paraphrasing:
So, I have a dear friend whom I'm taking out to dinner. It has to be around Anaheim Hills, though. Any recommendations? Can't be too expensive!
Rosine's is a classic out there, but if you want great Middle Eastern cuisine, just go into the lowlands of Anaheim. Edwin loved Canyon, but the price might be a bit much for stretched wallets. Other than that? Sorry, but Anaheim Hills can't match us lowlanders for cuisine.
Neither does neighboring Yorba Linda, for that matter. But I recommended to my Facebook amiga to arrange her dinner date at Supatra's Thai Bistro. I reviewed it years ago, but the Weekly's wonderful search engine says I didn't. Doesn't matter: I've been happy to see the restaurant expand in its shopping plaza experience, always offering the same excellent curries. Thai Nakorn or Bangkok Taste it is not, but this is a welcome outpost of relief in OC's culinary hinterlands.
The recommendation, by the way? My amiga loved it.
Supatra's Thai Bistro, 21560 Yorba Linda Blvd., Yorba Linda, (714) 693-2888; www.supatrasthai.com.
