Like so many of the ""ethnic"" restaurants recently opened in Providence, this place is a gem, offering beautifully-prepared, simple and outstanding food at very little cost.
Forget about Taco Bell---go and taste a real taco made with fresh corn tortillas, onions, avocados, cilantro, and your choice of meat, served with garnishes on the side---
and none of it has been soaking in chemical brine.
To all you suburbanites: the secret is: you pay more in the burbs for inferior food. I moved to Providence after living in Warwick almost all my life. I shared some long-held prejudices about the area, too. After all, a few years ago it was pretty grimy, deserted and just plain depressing. It was probably not too safe, either.
But the area is being revitalized, mostly by hard-working Latinos (think ""Cuban Revolution,"" Eagle Square, old-mills-turned -trendy-lofts)---but that's not the only thing that gives the area its interest and flair. There's a flux of students, families, and professionals (I'm a college professor) coming in alongside the ""immigrants,"" breathing new life into this place, where neighbors actually talk to and visit with each other, and where delicious simple food is made and offered with heart. Even Rachael Ray gave it a plug. Try it--it just might shake up your palate and your worldview.
