We were blown away by the strong smoky char which penetrated beyond the slightly crisp skin and into the depths of gleaming chicken flesh. So so soft and tender, each piece seemed to melt in my mouth, leaving behind the faintest aftertaste of a well-marinated slab of meat. The mild-tasting jicama - assumed to be guava at first - was an interesting addition which did well to bring the chicken to the foreground!


Past the two concrete walls that hide this hole-in-the-wall eatery from unsuspecting passers-by along this street lies a real gem! Blaring Mexican music fills a dim all-mahogany interior, lit only by the faint glow of tea candles. In the cosy darkness, one can barely make out a collection of Aztec masks, a life-sized skeleton straddling a motorbike mid-action, and intricately painted wall murals; all a warm tribute to the festival known as Diรก de Muertos, or Day of the Dead. Moving from the facade to the grub, Latin American fare here is served tapas-style, with a recommendation of 3-5 plates for 2 people.

Our first dish of the night: el burrito! Each roll was indulgently cheesy and rich, bursting with the flavor of frijoles - a quintessential component of Mexican cuisine. Yet, it remained mild enough to complement the grilled combination of chicken and beef. I found the crisp hominy kernels a nice touch, adding some crunch to the mushy fillings. Definitely a crowd-pleaser when eaten hot!
