“I have never eaten at this restaurant, so my wife and I decided to give this a try. We went over in great detail this very appetizing menu. I chose the tower of shrimp, which to my surprise was the tastiest dish I have ever had. Decent size cold shrimp in about a 6″ diameter dish. Each layer was interwoven with thin sliced avocado and a very tasty pico de gallo, that wouldn’t cease activating my taste buds. If you want the treat of your life hurry over and order this excellent menu item.” Joe L.
