Wonderful Mexican cuisine.
What a pleasant experience we had at the Tonali Cocina Mexicana on Shannon Road in Southwest Durham. It is definitely not your typical Mexican restaurant where you order from Special #1 through #10 or some combination of the run of the mill mexican dishes that all taste the same and arrive at the table lukewarm in less than 5 minutes. This is a genuine dining experience where the food is not only tasty but a work of art. Please don't rush Chef Andre Macias as he individually prepares the food giving attention to every detail of unique dishes, and take time to enjoy the cozy atmosphere. I had never even noticed this restaurant with trips to the nearby library and post office, but believe this is a gem off the beaten path that should be noticed.
