“Local Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Cool local place that is good for lunch. Also fun that you get to watch them make each dish. Watch out for the amount of Mayo though!

“OMG sandwiches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Oh my God!! Those sandwiches are the bomb! It's a little place, very crowded and you have to eat standing up sometimes but it totally worth the effort.
They make the sandwiches in front of you. You have to ask for it and pay later in the cashier with a ticket the person who made you the sandwich gives you.
I ate the famous "lomo palta mayo". It's pork meat with avocado and mayonaisse. You'll die happy.
Went there several times with friends or alone.

“burger heaven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

This is a fantastic place where you sit around a large square bar and the crew of elderly women cook up fresh pork & beef (or you can have steak tartar is you're feeling adventurous) in the centre so you can how fresh everything is...the portions are generous and served with avocado, tomatoes or sauerkraut, and the beer on tap the perfect accompaniment...and its also a great place to meet locals who queue to get in...join the line and wait for a space at the bar!

“best sandwich bar!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

I have been back 3 times to have their sandwiches, a real treat. the service is excellent, fast and friendly. my personal favourite is the 'rumano italiano' a combo of beef and pork meat with spices, served with mayo, avocado, and tomato. simply delicious, this should be the definition of a sandwich. the atmosphere is great as well, lots of people having work lunch, lots of people eating solo, but busy and relaxed at the same time. also fun to be able to watch the ladies prepare the food. all in all, i love it.
