I think ambience matches with the cuisine served. They have options of veggie and meat tacos. We tried their chilli, chicken and veggie taco and I liked their chicken taco because of their mole sauce. All the tacos were nice however nothing exceptional.

Delicious little tacos. The platter of six was $7.50 and super filling. I loved the Cochinita Pibil and Chicken Tinga. We only waited about 15 minutes so don’t be put off by the line. Great flavors!

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
