$20 for $40 Worth of Spanish-American Tapas
An Asian-tinged appetizer of ahi poke with crispy wantons ($7.95) segues into Spanish takes on seafood, such as the paella, which mixes clams, mussels, shrimp, calamari, andouille sausage, and chicken over saffron risotto ($12.95). Mango-duck quesadillas ($7.95) and spicy plum-glazed ribs ($12.95) incorporate tangy fruit flavors, and six types of skewers ($7.95–$8.95)—including shrimp, salmon, and beef tenderloin—pair morsels of meat with sauces and salsas.

Café Tu Tu Tango
At Café Tu Tu Tango, edibles and art merge with far more dynamism than your average still life. Paintings and brick pillars surround the tables, where pizzas decked in pears and brie flank the miniature campfires of tabletop s'mores. Murals and mosaics fill the space beneath counters, and plush sofas on the patio replace the chairs and moss-covered motorcycles of traditional outdoor seating. Even the napkins "are a rainbow of jewel toned colors," reports The Food Channel's "Raves & Faves" feature, which labels the restaurant's design "pure local artist eclectic." The review documents the café's other artistic quirks, including the dessert menu's catalogue of painted depictions, the commissioned artists who compose their opuses live in the space, and the range of performers who parade through the restaurant, from belly dancers to balloon artists.
The kitchen makes its own chicken and beef empanadas alongside six types of skewers, which spear meats such as salmon, shrimp, and steak. A classic sangria recipe complements bites of roasted pears or mango-duck quesadillas, and seven specialty pizzas bake in a brick oven. To top off an original lunch date, groups can visit nearby attractions such as Disneyland and the Anaheim Convention Center.
