The Little One Restaurant Review

: “The Little One” is tiny and loud, and sometimes you may be asked to share a table with people you don’t know. But we don’t care because of the food. In the morning, eggs are prepared in many ways, from the traditional huevos rancheros to the huevos entamalados, a green corn tamale topped with two fried eggs and your choice of either red or green salsa. There is cochinito (pork) in crema chipotle, but we tend to stick with the pollo en mole negro, slowly cooked chicken in a rich, thick, savory chocolate sauce. All lunches come with ranchero beans, a salad that mixes both leafy greens and fresh fruits, and warm corn tortillas. Try one of the house-made juices that change on a daily basis. And bring cash as that’s the only way you can pay for your meal.
