Santa Ana is known for being home to some of the area’s most renowned Mexican restaurants, as well as countless other delicacies. Alebrije’s Grill is one Mexican food favorite, even though it exists as a food truck parked in front of a Mexican grocery store. Another favorite, Chapter One: The Modern Local, throws a twist in the traditional way of dining with humorous dish names and a Filipino accent that complements traditional American and Mexican dishes. For desserts, you have likely seen pictures of this hot spot circling Instagram. Cauldron Ice Cream is known for their famous, fresh-out-of-the-oven Puffle cones, which paired with their liquid-nitrogen based ice cream, creates a perfect mix of warmth and ice cold sweetness.
