    The viagra is probably (unanimously) the best. I also love pulled pork - it's in a corn shell so it has a hint of sweetness! Also highly recommend the corn tamale with cheese...fluffy amazingness.

    The desert empanadas are amazing. I also prefer the arepas to the empanadas. The late night happy hour margaritas were cheap, boozey, & left me with a massive hangover the next day.

    El lugar está chiquito, los meseros amables y las empanadas muy ricas. El guacamole está mucho más caro que en México pero recuerden son precios de NY. Restaurante colombiano. Ricos jugos de frutas.
