I’ve been to Mercado San Miguel before and loved it. Is it much different then in 2011? I am having a light lunch there.

I have zero interest in Mexican food or a 3 hour lunch that day.

Thanks for the dinner tips!

 

It'd be really jaded to say it's bad. It's just much more tourist facing / strictly a food hall now than it was in the beginning, but you can still have a great light (or not light at all) lunch.

Actually, for what I want, a cono of iberico bellota, another snack and something vegetarian for my wife and dine/done in 40 minutes, seems perfect. Most of the day will be at the museum
But given the collective advice on the board, if I can get some pata negra for snacking, I may skip lunch .

I sent my mom to O'Pazo and they treated her like shit. Which bums me out because I love that place.

 What went south?    Seating?   Table?    Timing?    Indifferent service? 

 

Interesting because their online menu is in English so they are supposedly used to or at least encouraging visitor patronage.

Everything.

Though I partially blame myself.
