“Surprisingly Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2014

This restaurant is located just south of Talin Market on Lousiana Blvd in a little strip mall. I went with a friend who grew up in the Virgin Islands and spent a lot of time in Puerto Rico. He ordered the arroz con pollo and just loved it. I got the carne asada and was surprised by how flavorful it was at the first bite! The plantains were really nice and even though I normally leave the beans and rice on the plate these were also really good. I couldn't believe how flavorful everything was. I'd definitely go back again and try some of the other more specifically Colombian food choices.
No alcohol, real "local" feel.

“Amazing Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2012

This little place was quite a pleasant surprise.
The food was authentic, fresh, plenty and simply amazing.
While the restaurant is humble their food is outstanding.
