My wife and I came across this restaurant by accident as we were waiting for a tram nearby. We could see some lights coming from the centre of a dark park.

On checking this out, we discover this amazing Mexican-American-Dutch restaurant, specialising in tasty Tacos.

We shared the nachos and sweet potato fries starters and had pork and corn tacos for main. This was washed down with their Bobby 9 GnT which was lovely.

Really friendly staff and chilled vibe in this dim-lit restaurant.

I could not be happier that this place has opened. I visited on a Thursday night with my husband after he had been there on a work do the previous week. As soon as he had got home he told me he had to take me as it was so amazing. He didn't have to tell me twice & as soon as Oma visited we booked a table & off we went. We had the tasting menu but skipped the shot of Mescal as neither of us were into it. We then had the nachos which were freshly made (the chips were still warm) and they were heavenly. The toppings were fresh & light and every mouthful had something new to offer. Next we were brought an "extra" portion of kimchee fries. The kitchen had made them in error & we were asked if we wanted them. I leapt at the chance but our server (one of the owners) warned us there was a lot of food coming. My husband said "seriously you are gonna be stuffed" but as soon as we tasted them there was no way we weren't going to devour the lot! The courses kept coming with the biggest surprise for me being a cauliflower taco. I hate cauliflower but my husband insisted I tried it. You guessed it. I gulped it down in three bites! The flavours were amazing - zingy, smokey & the soft taco itself was freshly made and divine! To finish the meal we were served the lemon churros. How something deep fried can be so lemony & light is beyond me. I love this place. I can not wait to return so I better get Oma back to visit pretty soon because I really want to try all the other delights on their small but perfectly formed food.
Further info - We booked a table for 7 pm but at that time it was not necessary as it was quite quiet. I wouldn't guarantee it will stay that way for long though this place is seriously good & I would expect word to travel fast. We booked through their facebook page, we simply messaged them & they sent a reply soon after saying we were confirmed & not to bring our bikes into the park etc.

A quaint American Mexican in the middle of the park. They have a small yet tasty menu with enough options to satisfy all in your party. They are able to tailor some of the items if anyone if your party isnt into spicy foods. The restaurant it small in size with communal dining at some tables. The chefs do an excellent job in a small kitchen. If you're looking for authentic food, this is the place!
