Le Mexique French Cuisine

The phrase "Le Mexique French Cuisine" has become the slogan and identifier of Anepalco and it is no wonder considering the influences of owner and operator Danny Godinez. Schooled in the kitchens of some of the most revered Orange County restaurants, such as Charlie Palmer and Stonehill Tavern, he brings this experience and applies it directly to the dishes he loved growing up in Mexico City. Edwin Goei of OC Weekly says, "Godinez's […] Anepalco in Orange has become the place to taste the food of a chef who has one toe in French culinary traditions and a whole foot in his family's Mexico City kitchen." This means the dishes at our Orange restaurant sizzle with the ingenuity that comes from taking that which is in your bones and blending it with all you have learned, a rare union that only the very best can accomplish.
