I really appreciate their fresh ingredients and cool selections. I am always happy when they have their cauliflower ceviche, it's so refreshing and different. It's a steep price ($7 for a large which is maybe a 1/4 cup, but it's filling with the chips they serve with it). I love the tacos, the brussel sprouts and their house made hot sauce is KILLER (ask for it)

Went here as it was just around the corner from our holiday apartment. The food was really good and inexpensive. I wasn't such a fan of the limeade juice, and the seating wasn't very good - really cold with the wind blowing in the door. Enjoyed the sliders and tacos.

Food was way too fattening and greasy. Got the quesadilla and it was soaked in oil and when you picked it up to take a bite, the oil was dripping like crazy. Felt nauseous right after a minute of eating.

This was down the street from my work building.
Had to go.

PARKING
========
Street or garage. Good luck because it is Westwood after all.

AMBIANCE
==========
Modern and industrial.
Casual.
And splashes of that horrible lime green color.

FOOD
=====
SEARED AHI TUNA TACO ($5) - WINNER
The seared sushi grade Ahi Tuna, chipotle-honey slaw, lime-sambal sauce, and cilantro taco was fantastic. Flavorful, well-balanced, and the warm tortilla was the perfect taco. Probably top 5 best fish tacos I've had.
RATING: 5/5

PORK BELLY NACHOS ($9) - RUNNER-UP
Braised pork belly, tomatillio salsa, cheese sauce, combined with fresh chips was creative, original, and most importantly, it worked. The pork belly pieces were flavorful (not exactly fatty or juicy). I think a bowl of white rice also would have done the trick.
RATING: 4/5

ROASTED CORN ($2)
Half cob smothered with chipotle-honey aioli and Cotija cheese was deliciously creative. I wish it was served a bit warmer.
RATING: 4/5

SERVICE
==========
Staff was super friendly.
Food came out quickly.

OVERALL
=========
Great place to bring a group of friends or co-workers.
Their beer selection is impressive and they have wine by the glass for $5 (or you can opt for a bottle for around $20 range).

RECOMMEND.

This place has been open about a year or so in Westwood. Finally decided to give it a try during DineLA. Tacos are kinda pricey at $4-$5, but the meat is plentiful and seems to be of very good quality. During DineLA you got 2 tacos, a drink and a dessert for about $15. Good deal. Liked it so much that we have now gone back a couple of times and didn't mind that we had to pay regular price. You order at the counter and they bring it out to you which is great when you're in a hurry and only have an hour for lunch.
