Homemade Mexican and Salvadorian food. Specializing in authentic dishes, like carnitas. And be sure to ask chef-owner Jose Pantino about his daily specials!

Pantino says he got his passion for cooking from his mother, whom he used to help make tortillas when he was a boy. Because his mother died when Patino was 15, he feels a special connection with her in the kitchen. "Those beginnings with my mother, those early memories of cooking with her, are the 'salt and pepper' in my food," he says.
