    Aside from 24-hour service, a crowd-pleasing breakfast menu that includes dollar tamales, pan dulce, and more set this eatery apart.

    I can happily report business was busy, lively music abounded, and my tostadas hit the spot! It was a pleasure to see the mixture of people patronizing this restaurant. The food is a universal bond. Read more

    There is also a location at East 103rd in East Harlem. It is more intimate. Worth visiting too.

    Slow service but food is good. Agua frescas are great but food runs out all the time. Not everything on the menu is available. And did I mention slow service? Still love coming here at 4am.

    Had the tacos de asada. They were just ok. The carne was too dry and had too much gristle. Not as good as the ones back home, but ok.
