Delicious tacos, arepas, and pupusas. Im a slow eater so by the time I finished the taco, the pupusa and arepa were soggy from sitting in the juices of the meat. I dont like soggy food so I wish I had eaten them in a different order.
Waited a long time for these tacos and it was worth the wait! The asada tacos were perfectly marinaded and melt in the mouth tender. The tortillas were warm and chewy (homemade) and the sauce was great. Probably my favorite taco in Charlotte right now. (Update 07-01-20) I went back again and the meat was over cooked and tortillas were dry. I think it's because they were slow but the tacos were not nearly as good as last time unfortunately. Taking off one star. I will still come back.
I love the atmosphere and concept of this place, however a few things held it back from 5 stars. I had both the pastor and asada tacos, both were well marinated and had a lot of potential but spent a little too much time on the flattop and dried, also a bit confused as to why the steak taco is served naked with nothing on it, but i'm no authentico expert. The verde salsa was awesome. The pupusa saved the meal though, even though I checked the box and said everything was fine(my bad), the slaw and tomato sauce were not included. Even WITHOUT all of the topping to round out the dish, the flavor and texture of the pupusa was fantastic, and i would happily come back just to eat two or three more of those bad boys. EDIT- After further review and discussion about this place I had to take another star. If this place didn't charge such a premium price I would keep the 4 stars, but if you're going to charge $4 per taco, those tacos should be on point.
I'm so happy that this place is open! Authentic Latin American cuisine packed with tons of love. Huge empanadas! Best pupusas I've had and El pastor tacos were amazing! They also own sabor and three amigos here in Charlotte so I wasn't surprised everything was so dialed in!
We went for a family meal on Sunday. The food was superb. The staff were brilliant - very efficient and professional. The staff wore masks throughout, and there is a one way system in place for loos and exiting to help go mitigate the risk of covid. Would highly recommend the singapore crab, was so tasty!
