How can I get started?!
I have eaten at El Burrito Mercado many times on and off for over 20 years....this visit today was just the latest.
This is a true Mexican Market, but it is punctuated by an old-fashioned "line cafeteria" that serves primarily the local Mexican population in the District del Sol in St. Paul. Come here at the end of a work day and you will see the lines of young, single Mexican men who work long hours for landscapers, or as laborers, come in for their evening meal...looking to fill their bellies. If you do the same, you will not be disappointed.
For $6, you can have a quesadilla to die for, made to order, with meat or NOT. You can have a platter, or a complete meal....it is all wonderful and extremely inexpensive.
My husband and I had the quesadilla, and I also had a single taco, completely jammed with ingredients cooked in the traditional style. The tastes are completely authentic, and the cost is miniscule.
Don't miss this opportunity to eat AUTHENTIC Mexican.
When I used to live in Minnesota, there was nothing better on a cold winter day than to come to the Mercado for lunch. To be surrounded by Spanish, and to taste these incredible foods, was always wonderful to the MAX.
