Fervent flavours and margaritas flow in this cool and coveted cantina; think burritos at lunch and soft tacos at dinner, alongside other street-style offerings. The carne asada - shoestring fries, heaped with guacamole, salsa, steak and cheese - is gleefully gluttonous, while the more refined but equally indulgent chicharron sopa - a small tortilla topped with crunchy pork crackling and guacamole - will have you begging for more. The juicy pulled pork and black bean-filled chimichangas are golden and crunchy. This popular place is tiny and service a little too-cool, so be prepared to wait for a seat, or approach armed with a plan B.
