“Great Authentic Mexican Food”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

This small (3 rows of tables in a small storefront space) restaurant on 9th St. in the area of the former Italian Market is part of the area's growing Mexican scene.
An encouraging sign was that the staff was Mexican and the few patrons there on a week day mid-afternoon were Mexican as well.
We sampled the Mole Enchiladas and were not disappointed. Delicious mole sauce was one of the best I've had in the area. The guacamole we had as a starter was rich and creamy with a touch of heat and onion. The carnitas tacos were stuffed with tender, flavorful pork cubes....delicious!
This is a BYOB and the waitress easily accomodated our margaritas.
The menu expands considerably on the weekends when I understand it can be packed. However, we've marked this little hideaway gem for a repeat visit to enjoy a quiet, unhurried, sampling of some really authentic and wonderful Mexican food.

“Help Wanted”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

Although there was only one other party, who already had their food, it took annoyingly too long for two simple breakfasts to arrive; furthermore our waitress seemed to disappear into the kitchen for long periods of time; so that at one point I had to get up to look for her. Maybe that's the reason there's a help wanted sign in the window.

Still the perfectly scrambled & very spicy Huevos a la Mexicana-w/ onion/tomato/jalapeno-served w/ rice, refried beans & a pile of warm tortillas, were worth the wait. My date ordered Jamon a la Mexicana, a generous serving of razor thin slices of ham w/ the usual suspects & we mixed & matched which proved a tasty combo.

With Saturday & Sunday specials, including seafood, the bilingual menu is extensive; so if you've a yen for good Mexican food & don't mind waiting, while shopping at the nearby Italian (really now more Latino) Market, this is a worthwhile stop.
