The wait was super long, once you’re inside it’s crowded, tight and a small place. The food was good, but average. I am considering to come back next time and give it a second try.

at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where
