I don't eat out very often but I ate out 3 times today. I guess it's just one of those days where the kitchen gets no lovin'. For dinner, we went to Zankou Chicken. I'm not quite sure what kind of cuisine it is... it's like Armenian/Mediterranean/Lebanese food. Who cares what kind of food it is... 'cause its really good! My hubby and I first discovered Zankou Chicken in West LA. We would eat there at least once a week while living in LA and were ecstatic when we found one nearby in Anaheim. This restaurant is located in an unremarkable strip mall and screams 1970's with it's un-updated interior.
This place is like a Middle Eastern fast food joint. You order from a neon menu on the wall behind the cash register. Just like McDonalds, you choose the # with the picture of the meal you want to eat. Just like McDonalds, everything tastes sooo good while you're eating it but you feel a little nauseous after you do... I suspect this has something to do with the OVERWHELMINGLY delicious and garlic-y Lebanese style garlic paste they smear onto the wraps. Don't get me wrong, I freakin' love the garlic sauce here... but I'm sure that one tablespoon of that stuff has like 20cloves of garlic in it. Just don't plan on a make out session after you eat here...The specialty here is rotisserie chicken but I always order the tarna wrap, which is flavorful and juicy dark meat chicken with tomatoes and garlic paste wrapped in a pita. Everything here is seasoned very well and the chicken is a must try.
These pickles always come free with any meal and compliment the food very well. The hot pink pickles are made of turnips and are called mekhallel in Armenian. Thank god for discovering this location close to us~
