The shrimp and fish taco's are to die for! Make sure you try out their hot sauces as well. Their new location offers more seating although I've seen it quite busy in there. Try their grilled plantains as well!

I've been here a few times. This restaurant used to be across the street, and now they are in a larger space. Tacos are my favourite. I've tried tamales but they were too bland. They only take cash though.
