    We’ve been only once so far. It’s fairly good, but it would be good to try again to see how they are doing. 🙂

    Chile Colorado has fascinating flavors, not sure from what spices but who cares? Want to try carnitas but they have not been available the 2 times I have been there. Back to check soon!

      Thanks Juliette for the comment, bon appetite (I guess French isn’t the right option for a Mexican restaurant, but you get it).
