THE MENU

Start with the Mexican street corn and empanadas. The corn, served on the cob, is grilled and deliciously adorned with mayo, queso fresco, lime, chili powder, Cotija cheese and cilantro. Empanadas are available with chicken tinga, chorizo or beef fillings, and are both authentic and addictive. Tacos are a must, and there’s a large variety—if you must pick one, go with the street taco mix-and-match combo. If you want to try something a bit unexpected, order the Jamaican burrito, generously filled with jerk chicken, sweet plantains, avocado, Chihuahua cheese, coconut drizzle, rice and beans. Birria is another notable option, as are any of the quesadillas and fajitas. Burgers are eclectic and definitely made for the hungry. If you have an appetite left, end your meal with churros or a cheesecake chimichanga.
