I got a really delicious and great food, for little money. The people there are also friendly and you can go there for a drink. Unfortunately, the flies are very annoying when eating.

US $10 and less. Really tasty food. All homemade. We were shocked that they make each soup from scratch, every single order. It’s awesome value for Money.
