This sunny Pilsen café, which is covered in bright purple, yellow and orange paint inside and out, is next door to one of the city’s most successful purveyors of corn and flour tortillas. Employees clearly know how to put those tortillas to good use: piling them with tender chicken legs submerged in mole rojo, or sumptuous, slow-cooked beef in a rich tomato sauce. Satisfying tamales are available for a more portable meal—but keep in mind that you can’t take the sunniness with you.

Huge tasty tacos. I want to hug the peoples that spend all afternoon grilling those meats. 1 taco + 1 tamale = immediate happiness

I can literally eat there everyday! They have one of the best steak tacos I have ever had. Their chicken is marinated and so juicy and while I had my reservations about the cabbage slaw they use to top the tacos, it was such a delicious and interesting alternative to lettuce.
