The "restaurant" is a food truck parked behind a bar. You eat in a courtyard - inside or out. Great food - order enough to share because everyone will want to taste everything. Some of the dishes are extra hot - beware!

What a great experience we had! It's behind a bar which was odd but it thankfully wasn't busy so we slipped right through and found the truck. They helped us find the most popular items and we ended up trying at least half the menu....More
