Nancy Puebla Restaurant - Closed

1221 E. First St., Ste. C Santa Ana, CA 92701 | Santa Ana | 714-834-9004

Location Description:

Lurking within this seemingly mundane Mexican restaurant are delicious, complex rarities from the central state of Puebla, platters more familiar to an ethnography than an Orange County menu-dense mole poblano, pale goat menudo and guilotas, a chewy type of quail so region-specific that it's not even listed in most Spanish dictionaries.
