My favorite place that I have eaten in SF. Hard to find creative and toothsome tapas in the states. Easy to find on Market, in Duboce. GooglePlace - May 2017

Excellent food. They even have Bellota (a special type of Jamon Iberico that is quite hard to find in the US) sliced right off the leg. Wine options could be better but everything we got was tasty enough they still get 5 stars from me. GooglePlace - February 2017

I love this place. The rice bowl with the cola cola braised pork is amazing the the baos I think are better. My only warning is that if you're on a low sodium diet like I am that it can be really salty. There's water here so not to fear! GooglePlace - February 2017
