Venue Info

Known For

Mexican

You'll literally find crickets inside El Fortin, a tiny Mexican restaurant in Fullerton. Said crickets, or chapulines, are a delicacy in the owner's home state of Oaxaca, and the kitchen roasts them in a mix of lime, salt, and garlic, or tosses them into quesadillas. If you aren't brave enough to try those crunchy little guys, order the mole and molletes, two other customer favorites.
