Mexican | Mission Viejo / Rancho Santa Margarita, South Orange County

Long before what has become the "best mexican restaurant in SJC" our dream began in 2015 inside a 17ft. food truck with a burning desire of changing the way guest perceived food truck food to be..

Chef Manny and I have always believed that mexican food doesn't have to be greasy and fatty or simply tacos and burritos so we head out in our journey that has now become our destiny...

after three short years we look back and are amazed on how far we have travelled in such a short period..

when they ask us what is the secret.. our response is always the same. GOD has truly blessed us! we wouldn't be here with out his guidance and our friends and families prayers.. More
