Taqueria Mercado Food review.
Got dinner here with my lady Architects before heading to a show at the Shakespeare company. I had only been here for lunch before and it was nice to see this place come to life at happy hour. We had just missed the drink specials, but it was just as well. One margarita was PLENTY! They are strong and delicious like a little tequila fairy is behind the bar. It was a good thing we got tons of chips and had to walk a bit before the show, because we were defiantly feeling the effects.
I ordered the shrimp special and it was spectacular! Came with a dozen grille shrimp that were perfectly seasoned and cooked, rice, beans, lettuce, pico de gallo and fresh tortillas. I didn’t realize that it came with tortillas, so that was a pleasant surprise. The meal was light and I could create my own flavor combinations. Between the chips and variety of salsas and my shrimp, I was in heaven. Our server was great, I’m sure its not easy to deal with 8 women’s requests, but he was excellent. Great meal with great friends filled with laughter. This experience definitely elevated my view of this restaurant.
