Café Hidalgo

305 N. Harbor Blvd. Fullerton, CA 92832 | Fullerton | 714-447-3202

Location Description:

There are some dishes you experience whose taste lingers with you for days. The pecan-crusted salmon at Café Hidalgo is one of them. This thick fillet of salmon is bathed in a honey-dijon sauce that tastes almost caramelized, then it's topped with crushed pecans and served with mashed potatoes or rice and steamed vegetables. It melts in your mouth. And that sauce . . . it's amazing. The super-friendly waitstaff and beautiful Villa de Sol setting don't hurt, either.
