It's a buzzing little restaurant and I can tell why! We ordered the sizzling seafood and it was delicious. My husband ordered the vegan tacos and they were also delicious. We really recommend this restaurant.

We had cochinita pibil, tamal colado, empanadas de queso and agua de Jamaica. Very good food. the Tamal was not the best tamal ever but still good. the Agua de Jamaica was the bomb. the waitress was not friendly at all.
