Everyone should start their meal at Tu y Yo with the tamale combo plate. It comes with five different mini tamales with fillings like chicken and sweet corn, and it will brighten your day. After that, anything’s fair game - the tinga poblana, the pescado en mole verde, or the pastel de nopal are especially perfect for those times when condensation is falling sideways from the sky. Tu y Yo is open for indoor and outdoor dining, as well as takeout and delivery.
