##Minutes from the seafront and in the trendy neighbourhood of Cabanyal, Mercabañal is the perfect gastronomical experience for all foodies alike! With several different street food vendors and two extensive bars, there are food and drinks to suit everyone’s taste.
The venue itself is an incredible repurpose and restoration of indoor and outdoor space. There are multi-level espacios and a variety of sun-soaking terraces or shaded areas. Gorgeous bright blues contrast the vast number of plants, creating an eclectic and chic location. Whether you enjoy ‘Mercabañal’ in the sun or by the twinkling of the fairy lights at sunset, it truly is above your average dining experience.
As a vegetarian, I was pleasantly surprised at not only the veggie offering but the extensive vegan options as well. I went for a mixture of the Vegan Nachos, Avocado Maki and Double Fried Potato Fries. Washing it all down with a Coke Zero and gorgeous Aperol Spritz. My friends ordered humungous burgers, Bao Buns of every filling and crêpes oozing in white chocolate sauce and fresh strawberries. Despite all our different food preferences and dietary requirements, the group of 10 all managed to order more than enough and try several of the different vendors.
If you are ever looking for something out of the usual, somewhere to cater to a group of different taste or just some excellent, fresh food in a gorgeous location – Mercabañal is a must go!
