It was our 2nd or 3rd day in Mexico. We were staying at a condo on Calle 46 and was heading out walking down 5th Avenue. We had stopped at the mini grocery store the night before and never saw this place. We just happened to stop there on the way home when we saw several locals eating there. It must have been a good place. They were almost out of everything because of the holiday but we tried the choripan and pollo al limon, OMG they were amazing. We could not stop raving about it. I was determined to try everything. The arrapan, the ribeye, arrachera, everything was great!! Alex, the owner and his wife were beautiful people. My husband and I would just hang and talk with them. Just be sure to pre-order the beef empanadas, as they sell fast!
