    The only food without pork is chicken kebab with potato. And it's delicious.

    Great atmosphere, sharing is caring. Make new friends chatting to the strangers on your table. Vegetarian options are plenty. Food come to table once ready so remember to leave room to try everything.

    The pork secreto is amazing! Also for appetizers we really enjoyed the butternut squash pumpkin seeds and the broccoli with roasted garlic.

    The dishes here are best eaten with a bit of everything in each bite. The pig's ear (good by itself) takes on a whole new dimension when had with the egg, kale, and pepper.

    I don't understand why people like the bone marrow. Too fatty without any flavor. That was a disaster.

    Make reservations or else get here early. If you are here with a party of 2 or smaller, check out the bar seats -- especially the ones next to the chefs. Those are the best seats in the house!

    Don't be scared off by a wait - you can sit on the benches right outside and get drink service. You'll be happy you stuck around because the food and service are next level.
