Mercado La Paloma review

Had a lunch feast at the Mercado. I highly reccomend it for an easy field trip from downtown.

At Chichen Itza, had the Brazo de Reina, described as "steamed tamale in banana leaf" with spinach and eggs. Served sliced and on its side, like sushi. Good but not stellar. Had their trio, with includes a panucho, a salbute and another yummy open face soft taco, essentially. $10.31 for the above and a soda.

Friend went to Taqueria Vista Hermosa and had their outstanding al pastor soft tacos. But she also had the best item of the day, a pambaso - essentially a torta on very soft bread with potatoes and sausage. Oh man, was that good. About $10 for that and a pineapple soda.

Great condiments, too, including a wonderful salsa roja in a pour bottle.

Stopped for homemade ice cream at Oaxacalifornia. We both got great fruit ice creams in odd flavors I can't remember now. Very sweet but not cloyingly so. $3 for two ice creams.

Way too much food for two people, and all great stuff. Easy and free parking, fast service, wonderful place. 10 minutes from downtown. Go!
