Santa Ana, CA 92701
OC Weekly's Description
The licuados are already some of the best in la naranja: The Pancho Pantera has a cinnamon nose and uses Mexico's version of Quik, Choco Milk, while the one of nuez tastes just like a nuez paleta, which is to say it has a gritty texture, subtle notes of walnuts and almonds, and another Mexican product, La Lechera condensed milk. And the biónico, a fruit salad of chopped-up wonder, will wrestle down a heatwave like Tito Ortiz on a 100-pound weakling.
Tips from foursquare
Great food and atmosphere.
