Located just a few minutes away from our Santa Ana cannabis store, downtown Fullerton (“DTF”) is an underrated spot for food, fun, and nightlife. While you may know it mainly because of Cal State Fullerton and the student hangouts that come with it, Fullerton is full of places to go and people to see after you indulge in some cannabis.
What to Do in Fullerton
If you haven’t explored Fullerton yet, you’re missing out. Visiting this Orange County city is highly recommended for anyone who enjoys nature, shopping, and good eats.
Would you describe yourself as “outdoorsy?” Fullerton’s iconic Arboretum is the stuff of legends. Right in the middle of Orange County, there it is: 26 acres of lush greenery. It’s a great place to walk your dog, plan a picnic, or even get married. Fullerton hiking trails are also popular, with the Fullerton Loop taking the lead. Grab your bike and enjoy the view anytime until sundown.
Want to spruce up your wardrobe? Buffalo Exchange is a one-stop shop. Bring in all the clothes you no longer want, then use the store credit you’ll get in return to pick up some new duds. It’s a sustainable way of shopping that’ll save you money, and the quality and curation of clothing in this eco-friendly chain is excellent. (Speaking of eco-friendly, People’s is into that—our locally-grown recreational cannabis is an awesome way to enjoy green goodness, straight from the earth.)
Where to Eat in Fullerton
Fullerton isn’t really known for its gourmet scene—yet—but it should be. No matter what type of cuisine you’re into, downtown Fullerton has it, with everything from Hawaiian to Indian on the menu. Enjoy some cannabis flower or edibles and stop by one of Fullerton’s best restaurants:
- Mr. Barbecue. If you want to have some of the best Korean barbecue in Orange County, Mr. Barbecue is it. Lines are long, but worth it, with premium fare like wagyu and baby octopus on the menu.
- Pepe’s. This Mexican fast-food spot might look like an In-n-Out, but their menu is much larger. Try the machaca, crispy tacos, or the classic California burrito. When you’ve got the munchies, Pepe’s is here to save the day with burritos so big, no amount of cannabis will be able to help you keep eating.
- Matiki’s Island Barbecue. Disneyland may still be closed, but Matiki’s is open and serving Dole Pineapple Whip. Of course, we can’t forget about the Hawaiian fare on their menu (Kahlua pork? Count me in!) or the famous Kalbi and beef ribs. The portions are huge and prices are fair, with each plate providing what looks like a few pounds of food for around $13.
- Khan Saab Desi Craft Kitchen. Fullerton’s best Indian food is available from Khan Saab until 10:30 PM, so don’t be afraid to stop by late. Their crunchy pomegranate bhel puri is a great post-cannabis consumption snack, and their entrée options, including butter chicken and nihari, are must-tries. Finish your meal by ordering from their decadent dessert menu. If you’ve never tried falooda, rasmalai, or gulab jamun, today’s the day.
- Roman Cucina. This Italian restaurant has their to-go ordering system “in the bag,” using quarantine as an opportunity to improve their offerings even more. Their pasta is perfectly al-dente, and their calamari and marinara starter is delicious. Once you place your Roman Cucina order online, get your [delivery weed] going from People’s and indulge in both. There’s nothing like a huge plate of spaghetti and meatballs paired with your favorite cannabis edibles.
- Rutabegorz. This healthy eating chain has locations throughout the county, including Tustin and Orange. Their varied menu includes hummus, frozen yogurt, wraps, quinoa bowls, and burritos. The Art Schade Jr. sandwich is named after a Fullerton legend, but everything on the menu is great.
- Summit House. This classic steakhouse has everything you would expect—crab cakes, prime rib, and steakhouse sides like creamed spinach and lobster bisque. For the meat-and-potatoes guy (or gal) who’s feeling a little fancy, stopping at Summit House is a given.
Just looking for something to drink? Stop by Coffee Code for a flavored latte or hit the downtown Fullerton bars for some local craft brews. Bootlegger’s Brewery is a Fullerton favorite, with its safety-conscious social distancing measures and onsite food trucks. Stay and enjoy some Nashville hot chicken from one of their vendors, or pick up a growler of jam fruit ale or Thai tea-infused beer to enjoy at home.
Twisted Vines is another essential stop for anyone in the area. Here, Date Night is back on and better than ever with delicious wines that pair well with their burrata starter, charcuterie plate, flatbreads, and dessert empanadas.
