Could be good?
It took me long enough but I FINALLY made it Baco Mercat and it was everything I thought it would be.
After a few vodka sloane rangers I would have eaten anything but what I actually ate blew my mind. Yes BLEW MY MIND. What was it? A “Baco” or sandwich which was anything but ordinary.
I tried two (when in Roman right?) the “Original” and the “El Pesco” per our waiters recommend. Both were incredible. Super simple but packed with AMAZING flavor. Imagine perfectly puffy, warm, light flatbread wrapped around savory chucks of beef carnitas and crispy pork belly (The Original) or sariracha shrimp and chive dressing (El Pesco). YUM!
I hope to make it back to Baco Mercat very very soon to try other items on the menu. Who are we kidding I’ll probably just get another Baco (there are 5 others to try) but then the next next time I’ll try something else…..
