You may know us as that cute little food cart in front of that scary looking crackhouse on Ivanhoe and Charleston that serves really tasty food. Last week we got some awesome news. We've been given the opportunity to transform that scary crackhouse into our restaurant. While we'll still be using the cart as our kitchen our plan is to use the house as an indoor seating area, expand our menu and serve beer, wine and fun champagne cocktails. In this blog we'll chronicling the construction and progress by posting photos, stories and video about the construction.

In the garage behind the cart we found what might be described as a homeless person’s loft/studio apartment. They had wedged some plywood in the rafter to make a flat space and had a complete double burner kitchen set up.  It looked like someone had been living up there for awhile.  They even had a copy of diana kennedy’s authentic mexican cooking!  We only discovered it when we went to clear all the boards out of the rafters and when we pulled the first one down a cascade of pillows, bottles sheets and an inflatable armrest fell upon us.
