Restaurant

“Oh Clavel you had me at tacos that can make a California girl cry tears of happiness and Mexican 40's for 6 bucks ( Also known as Caguamas or Ballenas depending on what part of Mexico you're in) This restaurant is BEAUTIFUL inside. The walls are distressed brick and the space is full of quiet nooks for couples or common tables for groups. They have the besy Mexican food in Baltimore PERIOD and the pricing is right where it should be. It's in an area just above Mt Vernon where the community is inspiring and creative. ”
