This unassuming spot for tasty Mexican food with a twist has been a smash from the start, offering much more than guacamole with chips and a margarita (though these happen to be excellent here). Floor-to-ceiling windows, fairy lights, and quirky artifacts adorn the space while enhancing the feel-good, neighborhood vibe. The fuchsia-painted kitchen brims with bold flavors, skill, and creativity that incorporate worldly influences. Try tacos that fold crisp and faintly honeyed pig's ear with pickled onion and none-too-spicy habanero mayo into soft, warm tortillas. Earthenware-baked enchiladas are a particular treat, perhaps rolled with shredded bits of braised lamb in rich and luscious mole coloradito, topped with a delicately set fried egg.
