Nice Dinner at Mercado in Santa Monica

lil mikey | Feb 14, 201407:23 AM

The dos gringas tacos were delicious, with pastor and little bits of mango in the salsa.

Carnitas was also a hit. It's a huge portion, served with fresh made flour tortillas. I wish we got more than 3 tortillas with this dish. And while I'm on this topic, it seems like more and more Mexican restaurants are charging for chips (as does Mercado, and I wasn't impressed by the salsas).

And the piece de resistance was the flan. It was very creamy, almost like a vanilla custard, with a lemon liqueur sauce on the side. I would go back just for this.
