Restaurant
“A must try. Clavel is a Baltimore favorite. The atmosphere at this taqueria/mezcaleria is incredible, the tacos and drinks beyond and its not expensive to boot! If possible get there before they open at 5 PM, otherwise you are in for a wait. They don't take reservations. Make sure to get the Queso Fundido with Chorizo to start.”
