We decided to give this place a shot based on the rave reviews we had read on TripAdvisor. It was close to our hotel, and getting late and we were hungry.

Having lived for years in Merida, Yucatan I have eaten a lot of cochinita. That said, this was fine. It wasn't anywhere near the best I've ever eaten, and was kind of bland actually.

The best thing about it were the spicy salsas they had, those were indeed very tasty.

It was good, but not great.

A small place with a great simple decor. Simple menu with great options and presentation of the salsas is Great and done in a way that invites you to want to try them all! Love the atmosphere here and good music playing all the time! The Tortillas are Blue but sometimes dont seem that fresh or fall apart easy other than that it's Great! Also no lime here, but tacos are really flavorful and juicy so don't miss the lime too much. A must go for Taco lovers, wanting to try Yucatan Style Tacos. They have good deals of Take out orders also especially on weekends when you get a Free Liter of their special Horchata that is made with a blend of tascalate(a special drink from Chiapas) Love it, one of my top favorite Taco Joints in San Cristobal!

During our visit to lovely San Cristobal we had lunch at this very cute place. The food was delicious, I had a tamale and a taco, both very good and inexpensive.

Friendly service and welcoming ambiance.
