El Calamar is a Mexican restaurant in Santa Ana. Enormous platters of Mexican seafood, a mariachi band and cold beer make this Santa Ana mariscos place a popular destination. Make sure to reserve a table on weekends. This is also the place where they sell aguachile, one of the most magnificent seafood meals in the world that consists of scallops, oysters, shrimp, lime juice, and hell--hence, its translation as "firewater".
