Impress your friends with this great Mexican secret hotspot: La Esquina!

Would you like hearing about a good restaurant that also has a secret vibe to it? La Esquina is a pretty cool restaurant and perfect for eating great Mexican food with friends. The Ceviche is really “La Bomba”! Just like the Queso Fundido, a perfect combo of savoury and sweet.
The bar is great for having a few Margarita’s before dinner. Or after. It’s kind of a dark place, but that makes it very cozy. Obviously you’ll feel very cool at this secret hotspot. Well secret, secret… It feels like that anyway. From the outside it looks like a normal deli where people order their food, mostly for take away. But don’t let that fool ya! There’s a whole lot more going on in that hot steaming Mexican food corner. So make sure you reserve a table (really difficult to get one at a reasonable time) so you’ll be taken downstairs, down the steep staircase, feeling more and more excited, through the kitchen, to the place where all the action happens.
Awesome memorable experience!
