    Insanely amazing Taco/ Mexican restaurant! - I use to not like Mexican food; Tacos and Burritos weren't my things. But this place just nailed it - I seriously recommend anyone to try the foods here!

    기대 엄청하고 갔지만 요리사 친구가 미리다녀와서 해준 말이 있기에 마음에 준비는 했다. 그런대 역시나 ㅜ_ㅜ.. 친구가 머라했냐면 '향신료, 조미료 듬뿍..' ㅡ_ㅡ.. 내가 느끼기에 이건 김치 참치 볶음에 감자 튀김 얹어서 먹는 느낌이였다. 그나마 타코와 퀘사디아는 나았다.

    Kimchi pork fries and craft beers from US and Korea. Magpie IPA. Good size restaurant and ambience is oddly western - feels like a place in a US metro area. Highly recommend it. 60,000₩ for a family5

    Totally not worth the price. Our meal was almost $60 for 6 tacos and 2 drinks. We live in Beijing but from America. So we weren't expecting much. Hit up Taco Bell after. Should have done that first.
