I do enjoy regional food. I do enjoy Puebla. Yes these recipes do come from Puebla but they are still changed to cater to their clientele. It was average but I wouldn’t go so far as to say it was excellent. The service was good...More

I ordered the Relleno de Marisco and it was excellent. It was a unique combination of seafood, sweet and tart with the plantains and pomegranate. The service was excellent and enjoyed the decor. The owner came by and visited with us and made us feel...More

Wow! This little gem is worth crossing the pond for. We were welcomed by the owner, service was unobtrusive and attentive and the food to die for. Best Mexican we have eaten and we travel to Mexico annually. The chicken soup is a must as...More
