Why locals recommend it
This is a good place to go with friends for happy hour because they have specials, but it’s also a great lunch and breakfast spot.

It’s a fried chile guero over a tortilla that has melted cheese on it, and then they serve fresh uni over it. It’s pretty exotic and very delicious.
