Just tried it and I have to admit it was pretty good, actually did remind me for a split second of the tacos that I had in Mexicali many years back.

      Tacos are great, but the real stars IMO are the cachetadas (tostadas) and vampiros (quesadillas with awesome garlic aioli). I am not a fan of tostadas generally (unless they are spicy tinga, but u digress) but I LOVE the cachetadas. The tortillas are perfectly crispy with enough filling to make it a bit messy but not impossible to eat. I've been ordering the chorizo cachetadas, sometimes ranchero style, with a fried egg on top, and they are delicious. One of the best chorizos around. The aguas frescos are spot on too. Not too sweet and refreshing. The salsa bar although limited ( 3 salsas) is very solid. Can't say enough good things about the place.
