Mexican-influenced burger & breakfast grill with Telemundo sports on TV and "aboriginal" spray paintings on the walls. Three booths and several sets of stools seated at small, high tables protruding from the wall. Espresso is served with a medium brown layer of crema, with some larger bubbles, over a wide-rimmed paper cup. Filled high - almost as if it were drip coffee! So naturally it has barely more body than drip coffee. With an ashy flavor that isn't quite burnt. [CLOSED as of 2/17/05: Shan Restaurant. By 2008: Naan N Chutney]
