El Mordisco is a neighbourhood restaurant where food takes center stage.
The restaurant is located in a middle to low class neighbourhood, the ambience is simple, loud and bar-like, service is friendly although a bit slow and the variety of dishes is plentiful and splendid. The best feature of the restaurant Is the quality of the ingredients, menu selection and the delicious taste of the dishes we sampled, each of them prepared with the utmost care and seasoned to perfection.
A couple of weeks ago, I went there for lunch with 5 other friends and we ordered 3 dishes: Ceviche al Mordisco, Rice al Mordisco and a Jalea (deep fried seafood assortment). Portions were so generous that we couldn´t finish them.
I recommend visiting this restaurant at lunch (not sure if I'd go at night time) to enjoy a plentiful, delicious lunch at a very affordable price.

You might walk by this place a million times without considering it as i did but after a great recommendation, I went in and was amazed by the quality of the food here. It's a bit of a trip from mirafores but well worth the effort!
