Located in an area of Anaheim that is home to dozens of Middle Eastern restaurants and groceries, Sinbad Ranch provides everything the home cook will need to create this type of cuisine. Halal meats, exotic olives and cheeses, Turkish coffee--they have it all.

The first time I entered Sinbad Ranch, I felt as if I stepped back in time to my early childhood days. It reminded me of shopping with my grandmother in a little family-owned market in San Pedro when I was a little girl. I didn't want to leave. I love the smells of the varied spices from different continents -- so many choices! Being Greek-American, as I walked down every aisle I looked for Greek products, of which there are many -- even some I had forgotten about through the years. One of my favorites is a Greek jam that my grandmother used to make called "glyko". It's made from rose petals, or cherries, or watermelon rind, etc. They have several choices of those preserves, and they're high quality. Not quite as good as my "yiayia's", but they definitely bring back the childhood memories and well worth the minimal cost.

I must say something here about the freshness of the meats, specifically the lamb. I was raised with eating mostly lamb, and it's so hard to find some of the cuts in other markets. Ground lamb can't be found in any of the larger food chains, which is really disappointing. So, every holiday when I'm making some special Greek foods, I go to Sinbad Ranch to buy my fresh ground lamb.

I also need to mention the friendliness of the owners and their employees. It's like going to my own family's market when I shop at Sinbad. I'm treated like I'm family, not just a customer. There's a large market right across the street from my house, and I've shopped there off and on for over 15 years. They never greet me or offer any type of friendly gesture to any of their customers. The employees just talk amongst themselves, like the customer isn't even there. So, I try to buy most of my food items at Sinbad, because of their genuine friendliness and welcome that they give their customers.

Regarding prices, most of their items are much cheaper than the ones at the larger food chains. I've also never found an item that was expired.

This place is a nice little ethnic market. They sell fresh meats and all kinds of middle eastern fair. It seems like it might be a little run down from the outside, but it's really a nice little place.
