k’ya Anaheim

We dropped by the newish restaurant k’ya, at the corner of Harbor and Ball in Anaheim, with the intent of attending their fun/delicious Aloha Brunch. Well tough luck kiddies, they have canceled that indefinitely – a fact which this announcement at the OC Register failed to note.

No matter. We glanced at the menu and decided to stay for lunch anyway. It’s a good thing too, because it was a real treat. The menu was all “street food”, as in gourmet versions of the type of food sold on street corners around the world. Don’t bother looking at the web site’s menu because it’s outdated. Anyway, there isn’t a single item on the menu over nine dollars (but you would be best suited to order two items) because the portions are (not small but) of less-than-gigantic size. Think Cafe Tu Tu Tango – only way better!


I had Asian Chicken Salad and Loco Moco, my wife has Lobster Raviolis and a Walnut Cranberry Salad and we shared some fried asian dumplings to start. We washed that down with a couple of drinks were out the door for $32.00 (before discounts & tax)! Affordable and delicious! If you’re a Cast Member (or dining with one) you get a whopping 25% discount. The food was tasty, the atmosphere was outstanding and the wait staff was attentive. If I had one complaint it would be this: their menu is unique and really needs some explaining to first-time guests; this was something our waiter failed miserably at doing. Let’s hope they figure out how to explain their new diminutive portions and fun menu in the future.

How and why such an upscale place landed in the Anaheim Resort is a mystery, but it is a place I recommend you take out for a test drive! Yummy Yummy Yummy!

There is a picture of the fried asian dumplings after the jump…

    We had our ER Christmas party there. I didn’t go, but I heard it was pretty awesome. I’ll have to try it! And don’t worry, I won’t forget my *** Cast Member ID with the ******* ****** 2010 sticker on the front!!! :-> (I love having friends who still work there)
