Chana Masala with Grilled Garlic Naan — $7.00

favorite-things-marketplace-festival-of-holidays-review-12-2078759

Chana masala literally means “mix-spiced small-chickpeas,” but this dish has much more than chickpeas. It features a wide variety of vegetables including tomatoes, onions, and more. The dish is a bit tomato heavy with a lot of salt as well.

It is hearty and warm, perfect for a chilly Anaheim evening.

Sadly, the naan is terrible. It has all the quality of prepackaged, grocery store naan; it’s very dry.

Holiday Stuffing Mac & Cheese – $7.75

WS2

This item returns from 2019. The Holiday Stuffing Mac and Cheese is amazing. For starters, the cheese is great, not your usual mac accompaniment, which gives the macaroni a stronger flavor and it feels like more than something you could make in a college student’s kitchen.

Throw the stuffing on top and you’ve got a dish that would make Remy proud, combining the salty stuffing with the strong cheese and the always reliable macaroni to make a snack that some members of our crew would eat as an actual dish. Winner winner stuffing dinner! As Remy would say, “If you are what you eat, then I only want to eat the good stuff!”

Hibiscus Ginger Mezcal Mule — $14.00

Mezcal, house-made hibiscus syrup, ginger, lime juice, and Topo Chico Mineral Water

This drink is a refreshing mix of hibiscus and ginger. It has a strong mezcal flavor on the backend.

The most impressive aspect is the full marigold on top. This strong drink is a fine option, particularly for mezcal fans.
