Advice: Ask for mild or hot salsa. Tortilla chips are not complimentary you will need to order them if you want them.
I had heard about this new Mexican spot in the West End and got in for lunch recently with my friend Noam. I was happy to found this neighborhood gem, inside it was bright and colourful and the service was very friendly. The focus is on traditional Mexican fare and you will find many of the specialties you have known about in this part of the world, from Tortilla Soup to Enchilladas, Fajitas, Tacos and Burritos. I had the delicious Chicken with Mole ($8.95) the tender shredded chicken was seasoned with their traditional Mole Poblano a sauce made with different types of chillis, chocolate and spices. Noam had the Red Chicken Enchiladas ($8.90) three soft tortillas stuffed with shredded chicken and covered with fresh tomato sauce, melted jack cheese and sour cream. Both of our dishes came with red rice, refried beans and salsa. I had a bottle of the non alchohol Sangria ($2) beverage to drink. The food is fresh, tasty and the prices are terrific.
