Just called in to Mercado after a concert at the Recital Hall for a bottle of wine and tapas with friends.
Chorizo balls, anchovies, zuchini flowers and haloumi with figs, all delightful with a Navarre wine. A nice end to the evening.

Hustling and bustling nested in Ash street is this great little place for meat lovers.

There is mixture of sharing dishes of various sizes of different type of meats.

We shared (between 4 of us) wagyu tongue, calamari, cauliflower salad and suckling pig (special main). All of them are great though I wished the suckling pig cracklings could be crispier that it was erring on the side of chewy and the meat was a tad dry.

They do have a time limit for earlier dining time so we didn't have enough room for dessert. Guess that's an excuse to revisit!

I'm fortunate enough to live in the Bay Area in California, known for some of the world's finest food. We have great chefs with access to the best ingredients and discerning diners. So I've eaten some good food in my life. And I've had meals as good as the one I just had at Mercado, but none better. The roasted prawns with chili oil and romesco sauce were large, meaty, filled with flavor. The cauliflower salad with pine nuts and pomegranate and lebne (yogurt, basically) was perhaps the best vegetable dish I've ever had. I dropped a piece on the ground while transferring it to my plate, and cried a little. The roast chicken was incredibly moist, with a crispy, salty skin and layers of flavor. Dessert? Dulce de leche ice cream with butterscotch and candied bacon. I'm stuffed, but ready to do it all over. Great service, too.
