Right across from Somerset station, this Mexican restaurant serves chicken chilaquiles for brunch, tinga tostadas for lunch, and braised pork shank and masa dumplings for dinner. The atmosphere is cozy–there’s only a few tables and the walls are lined with handmade figurines like cacti, colorful chihuahuas, and antique plates. When it comes to the menu, they have sopas that can be made vegetarian and vegan, large quesadillas that can feed two people, and other sharable plates like a braised pork shank topped with an Oaxaca pasilla pepper salsa.  And since they’re open every day at 11am, you can get in a couple rounds of tacos and margaritas before noon and deeply consider skipping out on the office for the rest of the day.
