This food here is very good but it is a wholesaler with a small retail restaurant in front. As a result the service is slow and the portions are quite small. The seasoning and flavours are good. They have the best chips in the city...More

My co-worker told me about this odd little Mexican place which is actually a full on food distributor with a retail kitchen. While the food is delicious and very authentic, they prepare it for the feint of heart and you have to request spicy salsa...More
