Only sushi and foie gras are expensive and I don't eat either very often. My favorite places are also tiny hole in the walls, but usually you have to be in a big city to reap those kinds of benefits. Like sandwiches made with the best baguette in NY and exotic ingredients for $7 kind of benefits.

Its also home to what is the best fish taco I've ever had in my life and the only place I know of that serves manta ray (which really just tastes like a good white fish, though more "sturdy")!

I hate you. And NO I haven't tried Florencia 13 yet, because I'm in Philly until August
