Anaheim Packing District
Upper Level inside the Anaheim Packing HouseWhat was once an orange processing plant that has since been rebuilt as the hip food hall now known as the Packing House. The old Sunkist facility dates back to 1919 when citrus was Orange County’s main claim to fame. This food hall contains a one-stop sampling of the diverse population, fresh produce, and world-class culinary talents that make Southern California one of the best places to eat in the world.
Coming here for lunch is more than just a meal; it’s an experience. Aside from the diverse cuisines available, there are options for food that you simply can’t find anywhere else, like The Kroft, where mash-ups like chicken tikka poutine or cheeseburger egg rolls electrify the menu. Have you ever had a Japanese crepe stuffed with Fruity Pebbles. Hit the Crepe Coop and discover a sweet new sensation.
The Anaheim Packing District, with revitalized buildings and inviting parkland. Right at the heart of it is the restored Anaheim Packing House, a former Sunkist citrus-packing facility built-in 1919. Abandoned for decades, the building has been reborn as a multi-story food hall, with entertainment spaces for live music and events. Inside, two dozen food stalls and eateries—many focusing on hyper-local ingredients—tempt you to stop, taste, and enjoy. Stop by Lemon Drop for a pressed juice or lemonade and then plan your dining strategy. Maybe you’re in the mood for soul food at Georgia’s, ramen noodles at Orange Tei, or the street foods of India at Adya, one of The OC’s top new eateries. Or just forget dinner and go straight for dessert at Hans’ Homemade Ice Cream. Finish the night with a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon in a restored 1920s’ rail freight wagon—yes, inside the Packing House—at The BXCR (also known as the Underground Wine Society).
