La and I ordered tacos. I chose pork and she had the mixed veggies. Both were good and really authentic. The portions were generous too. My pork was very tender and had a smoky taste. My favorite though was the corn in sour cream with lime juice & chili powder. It really gave my taco a nice flavor kick.
Tacos are served in a cast iron skillet with red bean-chorizo chili, corn esquites, chile de árbol salsa and freshly made warm corn tortillas.
