We ate here multiple times, usually stopping in on a whim to see what was offered. Good home cooking--hearty servings for a great price. Definitely worth a look. If it's not what you're hankering for...come back the next day and try again.

Place is not elegant, no charm, no interesting at all. Food coudnt be better. They change the menu every day and is the most popular take away food.

El mercadito is conveniently located on Diego Dugelay right by the end of the pedestrian street. Food is pre-prepared so it's a good place to go for a quick meal or take out. A little bit expensive but the food is good.
