This is my favorite place to hang in when i'm downtown. Actually, i live in west harlem and sometimes make special trips to their neighborhood with friends, just to hang out there -- believe it or not. Why? It's got fantastic ambiance (love the asian/latin visual juxtaposition), the vibe isn't too hip, the staff is very accommodating and the food -- which is traditional mexican fare, by the way, and not tex-mex (and i should know the difference because i used to live in austin, texas and was overly innundated with both) -- is so unbelievably good, it's wacky. Actually, i went there last night and ate like the queen that i am and it was as great as it always is. I totally love this place. It's definitely in my permanent top five.

I have eaten here many times for their excellent traditional Mexican food. It is often too crowded at night so I like to go for brunch and take-out to have the chilaquiles, molletes, and huevos which are excellent. Huge tequila selection as well which is nice with the pure margaritas. FYI - to the first review, there is nothing tex-mex about the food.

This place is great. The verde chicken enchiladas were some of the best I had ever had. I love tex-mex and I thought they came very close to it. The drinks here are also great, as they are made with fresh everything and sweetened with powder sugar YUM! The bar tender was super cool to hang with and chat. Place gets crowded as it is quite small, but I highly recommend checking it out! The coconut, mojito is great!
