Catal Restaurant in Anaheim, California

When I lived in LA, I would go to Chef Joachim Splichal's Cafe Pinot quite a bit as our office tower was right across the street, and he ran a reasonably priced soup lunch to go. So it was great to find him running a Spanish place down here at touristy Downtown Disney (1580 Disneyland Drive, 714-774-4442). We could finally break away from that nasty theme park garbage (ugh, mac & cheese hot dogs!).

Now, that steelhead salmon above isn't exactly Spanish, but it was done nice and crispy on the outside while keeping a medium center. The calamari was much lighter than that stuff that we had at Brennan's local outlet here at Downtown Disney too. Too bad that the suckling pig paella wasn't available for lunch today. Either way, this might be the only decent place to eat at without going off-campus.
