MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
In a vibrant pocket of Brooklyn, locals flock to this timeworn façade for generous portions of fresh and well-priced Mexican cuisine. Complete with a backyard, the décor of this quirky neighborhood staple is distinctly authentic, from its bright woven textiles and vibrant pink walls, to lava rock molcajetes that top each table. Start your meal with a delicious and filling chorizo taco topped with onion, tomato, and cilantro. Crepas de elote are stuffed with bits of tender onion, juicy corn and poblano peppers. The chile poblano is a house specialty that satisfies with its one-two punch: one is plumped with a savory combination of cheeses, while another is stuffed with a beguiling mixture of chicken, almonds, diced plantain and crunchy apple.
