Chomp Chomp Nation finds a new home at Wholesome Choice in Anaheim, California

Since 2011, Chomp Chomp Nation has been bringing Singaporean streethawker food to the streets of Southern California. They have been featured on Cooking Channel’s Eat St Season 4 episode “Chomp, Chomp, Chomp” and Food Networks’ Diners, Drive-ins’, Dives’ “Real Deal Roots episode. As the food truck craze scene started to cool off, most of the successful food trucks have gone to brick and mortar locations, expanded their trucks to cover more areas in California, and/or have nationwide distribution of their product. Chomp Chomp Nation has found a new home inside the food court at Wholesome Choice in Anaheim, CA.

If you haven’t been to Wholesome Choice yet, you’re missing out. The aroma of spices and food from the food court will allure you in. It has “natural foods from around the world” where you can find exotic foods, produce, spices, and more for recipes that are not commonly found in the most local supermarkets. They are also a great market to use as your local market as well, selling everyday ingredients and household items.

Hawker Grill items are served on a toasted brioche bun with fresh cut Root Chips and a Side Item.

Tiger Prawn and Lobster Laksa (daily special, check their Facebook page to see if they are selling it) is a popular spicy noodle soup – combination of Chinese and Malay flavors. The soup is a rich and spicy coconut milk curry with tiger prawns, lobster, Asian meatballs, rice, vermicelli and topped with hardboiled egg, bean sprouts, green onion, and chili pepper. This is one of the most balanced, harmonized dished I’ve ever had! It is spicy but the flavor is so addictive, you can’t stop eating it. Rating: 5/5

Marinated Ribeye Steak is thinly shaved ribeye steak in Chomp Chomp Nation’s signature marinade of tamarind, brown sugar, shallots, spice seasoning, and topped with a light vinaigrette slaw ($10). The ribeye is the Singaporean take on teriyaki beef, yet a little different. The meat is tender and the tamarind and brown sugar give it a Southeast Asian flavor. The slaw gives it a crunchy texture and adds the right amount of acidic balance to the sandwich. I love the side of root chips as well – taro chips are my favorite! Rating: 4.5/5

Green PhalaPhal Burger is a seasoned green falafel patty (freshly picked chickpeas), mint curry lime yogurt raita, and topped with fresh pea sprouts ($8). The patty is unlike the Middle Eastern version where the exterior is very crispy and the interior is very dry. This patty is crisp on the outside, but very moist and tender within. It makes the perfect vegetarian alternative for a burger. The pea sprouts add a nice refreshing green flavor. Rating: 4.5/5

Tiger Blood Tea is made with hibiscus and lychee gel cubes on the bottom. I’m not a tea drinker, but I love this drink. It’s sweet, but not too sweet with a refreshing tropical fruit flavor. I love lychee so the gel cubes were onolicious! Rating: 5/5
