I met there with a Mexican friend and he ordered a variety of plates. Everything was delicious, specially the Chiles en Nogada, a seasonal plate. The spicy sauce was not spicy enough so they prepared a fresh habanero sauce for us. Prices are very reasonable.

Come to this place if you want to see how Mexicans treat breakfast! Ideal for a business meeting, local style.p Food is excellent, with a variety you can’t think of. And the service is just overwhelming: lots of waiters, very coordinated, fast and helpful.
