Quaint section of Detroit, approximately one block. At first we visited Glotria’s bakery then Lupita’s Taqueria. Bought too many items at the bakery but they were all delicious! Had tacos afterwards. Thoroughly enjoyed taco and El Tamarindo beverage. Must try if you are in town!!

Who doesn't like Mexican food? I mean, authentic Mexican food? I've been to Mexico and the home made tortillas and beans are to die for, not to mention the tray of lobsters. Great food, service and modest prices. You can't go wrong!
