Delicious Lunch

I ordered a tostada here and it was easily the best one I've ever had. The shredded chicken is flavorful and fresh in a way that most restaurants don't measure up. Avocado and plaintain on top really bring this dish together.

Although this place is well hidden in an alleyway -AND- is only open for Lunches -AND- not open on Sunday, I still highly recommend this place. The food is excellent -- I LUV their special hot cilantro sauce on everything -- and take home a bottle (or two) for later. I live two hours away from Columbus so getting to... More

I had a meeting with a business acquaintance and she recommended this place. I had never been, but was open to someplace new.

Authentic Latin flavor. Arepas originate from Venezuela and are thick corn tortillas split open and stuffed with your choice of protein, lettuce, cheese, salsa, etc. The restaurant also offers entrees with sides like fried plantains and black beans. Also a nice selection of natural juices.

One of the best places to grab lunch downtown Columbus! Fair warning though, it is super busy and there is not much seating. Completely worth the wait - and ordering to go is always an option.

The food has always been authentic and delicious. It is well worth the price. Just plan ahead for parking since it is downtown and you will need a walk a bit.
