What choices!!! You and your Vegan friends can delight at this restaurant that offers amazing meals for all dietary needs. Best duck tacos I ever ate and zucchini spaghetti for my vegetarian friends. Price moderate- well worth it.

I ordered duck breast. It arrived dry and without the skin or fat, which is the very reason I ever order duck. Upon inquiry, they claimed they used it for another dish. What???
