tried this Mom and Pop located near the waterfront in Keyport. Pleasantly impressed with what we all had. Appetizer were chicken flautas...nice and crips and not a bit of oil to be found. Topped with super thin sliced Iceberg lettuce and really ripe avocados just fell short on flavor. the chicken inside was cooked and shredded but lacked and discernable flavor. With a little flavor this appy would have been a knock out.

Onto the tacos....nice and moist fillings and they had at least 5-7 choices. I didnt have the tacos but the others seemed did mention that the soft corn tortilla wasnt what he expected...but who knows in the age of taco Bell what he was expecting.

Sandwiches...very very happy here. I had half of the chorizo...Small diced chorizo pan fried and scrambled with eggs..almost cooked like a patty...slathered with a really authentic chili sauce, queso fresca, shredded lettuce, sliced peppers and mayonaisse. I know..over the top but I loved it. The bread was real fresh and light...almost compareable to portuguese but not as chewy a crust.

Pork Carnita sandwich...def could have eaten this one as a "whole"/.//but even I have my limits. tender little cubes..just shy or shredded braised pork with the same stuff that was on the other one...very very tasty and only 6 bucks~!

Overall I def will go back..things tht caught my eye....Papaya Smoothie...Limon Agua....
