Entraña Cambalache

“My passion is to prepare and serve food not only to satisfy the palate, but to satisfy the senses and soul.”   – Chef Leo Razo

Cambalache is an Italian Argentine restaurant dedicated to creating a unique and vibrant experience that transports you straight to “La Boca,” famed for its colorful communities and passionate tangos. After moving to the United States in the early 1990’s, Chef Leo Razo brought with him his love for “La Boca,” dedicating himself to translating its radiant passion into flavor, bringing the Buenos Aires neighborhood right to Orange County.

The meaning of Cambalache is “to give and take,” and that is exactly what this restaurant stands for in the community. Chef Leo Razo and his lovely wife, Teresa Razo, assist in several different community partnerships and programs for the sake of uniting the community, such as the Kiwanis Club of Santa Ana, and the Fountain Valley Restaurant Association, in which Teresa has become head of command. Teresa also aims to create a seminar program devoted towards educating businesses owners in entrepreneurship and modern marketing, available for business owners of all types to attend.

On top of being a gracious community advocate, Cambalache is also a winner of multiple awards. Chef Leo Razo is the winner of the first season of OC Chef Wars, and winner of the World Record for largest paella in the United States and Mexico, and Teresa Razo was named Restaurateur of the Year here in Orange County for her stunning hospitality and great appreciation for her hard working staff.

With everything that they’ve done, the owners and staff have turned Cambalache into a treasure here in Fountain Valley; one that will always strive to do more  and promote success in its community.
