El Fogon - Closed

1228 E. Edinger Ave. Santa Ana, CA 92707 | Santa Ana | 714-836-8896

Location Description:

The guerrerense specials hide behind a long menu chockablock with fajitas, ceviches, wet burritos and other American favorites. You can find aporriado at some Michoacán-style restaurants in Orange County, but nowhere like this: beef dried so that the outside is beef jerky, the inside as succulent as carne asada, chopped up and served alongside rice and beans. The most famous dish is pozole verde, and El Fogón stews it fresh daily, with the stock created from boiling a pig's head (don't worry: they don't serve that meat in the dish). Pork, pozole, and who-knows-what herbs come together in a bowl, radiantly green, hearty and crunchy yet a bit tart: a must-taste Orange County soup.
