    Hidden gem in PB. Tried a little bit of everything so I can say, it's all good! Very friendly servers and wait staff.

    The garbanzo beans looked like either pinto or peruano beans in the soup. The "happy hour" isn't offered in the dining room → only at the 3 seat "bar" or the uncovered patio.

    Be careful what you order, super small portion sizes on quite a few dishes
