Our guidebook strongly recommended this restaurant as "the best". We drove into town and saw much more cars next to another one, right across from Hana Hou. Luckily we did not waver. All ingredients fresh. Service, although it was very busy, impeccable!

What treat to stop at this wonderful place. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. I had the Big Scramble breakfast and I asked for a side of their Salsa Verde what a combination. We will be back, that is a guarantee!
