The chefs at Comida Mercado Fresco adhere to the culinary traditions of Mexico’s Yucatan region to create a menu of zesty, flavor-focalized specialties. Fuel a cutthroat game of under-the-table footsie with a first course of nachos comida—an above-the-table platter of warm tortilla chips smothered in cheese, pickled jalapeños, and choice of beef or chicken—or the ensalada comida, a high-octane opening act of chopped romaine hearts, green olives, and roasted chili poblano blanketed in cilantro-jalapeño vinaigrette. A main course of bistec con salsa borracha verde features two tacos filled with skirt steak and negro modelo salsa verde accompanied with cactus fries with chipotle mayo or fried sweet plantains with queso and crema. Diners can use the pescado con salsa de estilo Yucatan taco—fish tacos with cabbage salsa and smokey chile crema—to rehash childhood fishing memories, or opt for one of Comida Mercado Fresco’s enchiladas suizas—corn tortillas folded and filled with chicken, then baked in salsa verde, queso, and crema—to delve into the psychological underpinnings of recurring tortilla nightmares.
Along with a bustling kitchen slinging out sumptuous, solid comestibles, Comida Mercado Fresco boasts a bar that serves up cocktails and an intimidating array of tequila (drinks not included in this deal). Patrons enjoy their choice of fare and refreshments within a comfortable, clean dining room, replete with exposed brick and unexposed servers.
