AAA Inspector Notes
In emerging Long Island City, this authentic eatery excels in serving traditional family recipes earning them a loyal following. This hotspot has a clean white interior, which allows you to focus on the exquisitely prepared favorites like mole enchiladas, ceviche de pescado and lamb shank braised in chili. With casual but diligent service and a humble whitewashed decor, the food is what carries the show here. There is a large communal table in the main room which is perfect for a lively party, with smaller more romantic tables for couples on a back covered patio. Fresh ingredients and deep rich flavors give a complexity to the traditional Southern Mexican inspired cooking which is robust and compelling. Chef Cosme Aguilar, a native of Chiapas, the southernmost region of Mexico, livens it up with unapologetically spicy chili accents that add explosive high notes. The three homemade salsa squeeze bottles that come with dinner can add fuel to the fire, along with a fine selection of specialty regional tequilas.
