Nice little shack on the edge of town. Homemade tortillas stacked with all the standard choices as well as unusual things like octopus. Fresh grilled fruit and hearty servings provide a great bang for the buck.

The food here is excellent. I had the pork kimchi taco and the scrambled egg chorizo. Both were excellent. Corn tortillas were home made on the premises. The entire menu consists of only 6 items - fresh and delicious. I highly recommend it.
