This slick, bright and friendly counter-service spot opened in April and provides the heart of downtown with well-made versions of tortas and tacos filled with a small number of more traditionally Mexican items: the recently popular birria, carnitas, chicken tinga, Campechanos (fajita beef, chorizo, topped with dried chicharron), poblanos and potatoes, and barbacoa de borrego. It's odd to find stewed goat in the heart of the office towers and expensive high-rise apartments a block from Market Square, but it is very welcome and tender and delicious. The large tortas are served on the softer telera bread of good quality. The tacos come first with corn tortillas but flour can also be had. Cool and breezy open-air seating is upstairs and there is a patio out front that shares space with the churro cart, a welcome addition to the nighttime street scene. Those are also worth an order. This is a fun and very useful place.
