I guess I would call myself a regular. I fell in love with their fried rice, I consider it the BEST fried rice I have ever had. (Mind you this includes rice from China, HK, Taiwan, mom's kitchenand Chinatowns in SF, Chicago, NYC, Toronto....)
Atmosphere--Open air (ok, under a tent) seating and a few tables "inside", but it's all pretty much open air at the Mercado. I love this kind of place. Public washroom for $5 P across the courtyard, but there is a hand sink in the corner of the restaurant.
Food--The Indonesian and Filipino menus painted on the wall are just foreign to me so I have stretched my wings and now order what I want from Jorge (the handsome man in the kitchen). Tell him the flavors you want, the protein you want, and he will whip it up. Or you can peruse the dishes on the tables of the cruise ship crew regulars and order that way. I order the Fried Rice Mixto w/ pork,chicken, and shrimp. The fish you can choose from whats in that day. The chicken curry was ordered when I was enticed by the aromas drawing me in from the road. Try the Avocado Shake Laced with Chocolate but WARNING, it's large and filling, so share it with someone as avocado crazed as you are. I've been told by 2 different parties that the Shimp Sambal is to die for....so I guess I will die for them on my next trip.
Price--a little higher that what I consider typical for Coz. but the portions are large and the quality and flavor of the food definitely justifies it. Rice for 3, a large fish for 3 and 2 large waters and tip was about $400P.
