This is a family business that has been in Whittier for many years. It was okay, but I understand that the owner's son studied at the Cordon Bleu in NYC and came home to take over kitchen duty. Since then, it has really taken off. Crowded most days, but especially weekends. Get reservations or be ready to wait outside. Not a lot of seats. Really good Mexican cuisine. Fresh, fresh, fresh! I understand that new chef makes all sauces fresh each morning and you can taste it. Guacamole was delicious with homemade chips just out of the fryer. Tortilla soup was nice and spicy with fresh chips. I enjoyed the chicken enchilada with mole sauce and a toss of sesame seeds. The sauce had just the right balance of sweet chocolate and spicy flavors. At my table, others enjoyed the tacos, burritos, chile rellenos and the carnitas--very lean and tasty. All were very satisfied! Definitely the best in town! They serve breakfast on the weekends and are open late weeknights for dinner.
