This place is on every 'must visit' list so visit we did. It's a fairly basic place and is cash only. The menu is quite long and the dishes are small so you can try a few things. We went for steak tacos, chorizo tacos,...More

The dishes are plain, simple, but the especial, the chorizo taco's, oh my gosh. I would go there for a full month every single day. A absolute gorgeous place off the beaten path. I will be back some day...
