At iSalud!, located in a historic 1800s building of Bario Logan, it's all about authentic Mexican dishes. Head over for Taco Tuesday to enjoy three fish, carne asada, al pastor or corn tacos for $5. We love pairing our tacos with their drinks like honeydew melon, tamarind, cactus water and horchata.
