Very good place to eat street food but very clean and fresh bread and grilled fish! They also serve meat and chicken cooked differently! We always go there!

The best time to come here is in the evening time. Very nice atmosphere especially in the winter season.

Definitely worth a visit. Do not expect a very old location. If you are a bit aware of the history, it is certainly nice to walk along the many shops

In reality I ended up wandering through several different soul in the four or five streets around here. There were some great sights, sounds and smells. I was never hassled, felt very safe at all times and found a couple of reasonably priced souvenirs!
