The flavor and the portion size! I feel like some places always skimp on the protein in street tacos and Little Cancun did NOT! My tacos were delicious

Portion size is amazing but the meat was a bit tough, maybe because I ate it an hour later but otherwise I love it

The eggrolls just had a weird taste to them, but the gyoza were really good. It couldn't just been a spice or something
