Amazing delicious fusion food only from local ingredients there definitely can be tasted. It is so delicious and the staffs are so sweet. Make sense after I visited the place, that local people call it the best restaurant in town.

and poetry readings, its days of flower children and
buskers may be long-gone, but not without leaving
