Hidden in the jungle near Montezuma’s famous waterfalls, this newcomer is making serious tacos. Fresh fried fish like sea catfish is served in homemade corn tortillas, alongside a craft beer from Butterfly Brewing Co. Latin specialties also include mole poblano, jibarito carnitas (pork) and lomito (tender beef). The Costa Rican owner and Oregonian chef met in Bend, Oregon, and agreed that a clandestine Costa Rican restaurant serving mostly organic, gluten-free, and vegan dishes was just the ticket.
