99 Ranch Market is a time-saver for lunch or dinner in Anaheim, CA

Tucked away in a small shopping center, 99 Ranch Market, in Anaheim, is located off a bustling street intersection near
Euclid Street
and the 5 freeway. It is tucked at the back of a shopping center mainly comprised of Asian stores and restaurants. Opened in 1989, this is a prime location for transplants that are looking for ingredients used in the Far East.

99 Ranch Market has a great butcher block in the back of the store carrying everything from beef, chicken, pork, and seafood. But the seafood section is clearly the best part. You can choose from fresh fish and seafood on ice.  If you like your seafood super-fresh, check out the tanks for live fish, crabs, lobster, and shrimp. Now here’s the greatest part, you can have them prepare it for you via their fry method. On our particular outing, we chose a live catfish from the tank. The butcher artfully dispatches the fish, cleans it (taking off scales and such from the skin) and makes vertical slits for fry process.  He hands it off to the fry cook where your fish is fried to your liking.  We chose “crispy fry” for our catfish.  In about 15 minutes, you will be handed your fish wrapped in foil and butcher paper.  The scent is heavenly.  As you walk up to the front to pay for it, people will smell your delicacy and comment.  We always have people say, “That really smells good!” or “Where did you get that?”
