This was a wonderful Latin American Fusion restaurant that blew me away. They were able to use a mixture of traditional ingredients to keep the flavors interesting and keep the taste balanced so it wasn't too odd/ strange. Food was phenomenal!!! I had about 15...More

The minute you enter this charming storefront on 18 Street, you know! Carefully prepared food not overpriced. The Tiger Shrimp Salad included four large shrimps on lovely greens and chopped fruits. A bean soup of the day was a meal in itself. Do not miss...More

A neighborhood restaurant with imaginative and entertaining dishes. Was there with one guest who can't eat spicy foods, and there seemed to be an element of heat in everything, but overall an incredibly entertaining use of ingredients, charming service, off the beaten tourist path.

This is one of those restaurants you simply must try. Every appetizer and entree was excellent. We were talking about the food and the good time we had days later. Rarely is a small, unassuming restaurant so memorable
