Great cochinita pibil! Great for a meal or a quick snack...The salsas are wonderful! Owned by the chefs of Tierra y Cielo...

As you go further south in Mexico the lack of taco stands becomes apparent. I went here for my taco fix and was not disappointed. Loved the varied taco flavours and their delicious fillings. All complemented by a very tasty horchata. I miss Mexico just...More

This small and beautiful place convinces with very delicious food for a more than fair price. We tried everything they offer and can totally recommend everything.

Great little restaurant with a funky, colourful interior. The menu is simple (Cochinita Pibil on a variety of bases - tacos, tortas, etc.). Served with a selection of salsas in cute wee jars. Great prices and friendly staff. Highly recommend!

Absolutely delicious food and lovely vibe. Very cheap - tacos and tostadas $14 pesos each, including lots of toppings. Horchata and Cocoa tea were also delicious. Total cost was $140 pesos for food and drinks for two people. Can't wait to go back!!

One of my favorite mexican plates is cochinita pibil and this place definitely nails it! The best is you can order one of each plate on the menu and they're all worth it. Specially the Gringa (made with green flour).
