The Arthur Avenue area may be known as the artery of the Little Italy of the Bronx, but a Mexican restaurant shines here with its fluffy tamales loaded with tender, fragrant corn and so much more. The small interior is brightened with gold walls, a fuchsia ceiling and three stars set in the coffered ceiling. Exposed brick and a semi-open kitchen complete the comfortable scene. Conversation is common between the pleasant servers and other diners. Pancita, a spicy tripe stew, is a real eye-opener with its abundance of toasted chilies. The bistec Estrellita is served with a fiery habanero sauce, topped with pico de gallo and flanked by a side of rice and beans. Flan is a lovely finish-though that generous steak may fulfill even the heartiest appetite.
