The restaurant unveils a new, modern vision and features a contrasting and unusual design. The space has polished concrete floors and a traditional interior design. What’s striking is the ceilings that has been left unfinished on purpose. I’m not sure what the main idea behind this decision was but the overall look is unconventional and contrasting, a combination of old and new.

The restaurant has sanded wooden tables and stools, together with shelves located between the walls of the restaurant that are filled with bottles and Mexican traditional products. The kitchen is located in a separate room. The restaurant is a combination of retail, display and production areas, it’s a place where you can see what you get and you can either serve it there or take it to go.

There’s no division between public and private spaces and the pedestrians can take a quick look inside and usually decide to go in. It’s an inviting place, a cozy atmosphere and great food, all in one structure.{found on archdaily and pics by Luis Gallardo}
