Anepalco’s Café Voted Best Restaurant 2013 by OC Weekly

ORANGE, CA, October,  2013 - Anepalco's Café was announced as Orange County's Best Restaurant for the year 2013.

This October, Anepalco's Café in Orange was voted the Best Orange County Restaurant for the year 2013 by OC Weekly. Head Chef Danny Godinez was featured in OC Weekly's article with praises of his entrepreneurial edge and innovative cooking abilities. Godinez has been able to triumphantly oversee two locations simultaneously in Orange, CA. The restaurant's first location, which is near St. Joseph's Hospital, landmarks the beginning of his legacy. His second location opened at the Ayres Inn Orange in 2011, and both restaurants have proven equally successful.

Executive Chef Godinez has set a new standard in culinary excellence; he continues to create fresh, groundbreaking dishes while still remaining humble and hardworking. OC Weekly states, "You'll almost always see him bussing tables, dressed as a working-class stiff." His accomplishments over the years and his humility about his career proves that he has never let his success go to his head.

The Executive Chef only purchases the highest quality ingredients for his perfected dishes. His restaurants offer non-traditional Mexican French fusion cuisine, which combines high caliber dining with a street-food technique, quickly becoming the winning method for the café. The most famous of these fusions is the Anepalco's Chilaquiles, an indulgent and irresistible combination of spice, crunch, and creaminess. Fortunately, the inventiveness does not end there. OC Weekly also mentions the eggs benedict, Huitlacoche Burger, Prime Rib in Achoite Sauce that "flutters off the fork," and the Ahi Crudo Pambazo which "incredibly combines Mexico City grub with the finest-grade tuna."

With dishes that leave nothing to the imagination, it is no wonder OC Weekly raves about this culinary genius. Two locations, one vision, Anepalco's Café has produce growers, supermarket execs, and foodies alike begging  for more. For the full scoop on the verdict of Best Restaurant 2013 go to
