El Mercado Modern Cuisine is well know for their superb cocktail creations, of which include the "Italian Wolf". Our talented mixologist has wowed many with his skills behind the bar, and continues to reinvent our cocktail game with new cocktails every season and holidays. Thanks to his talent El Mercado Modern has become the local’s bar.
Popular dishes, at El Mercado Modern, include inspirations from Oaxaca, such as the Tlayuda, a colorful and rich in flavor dish served vegetarian, but also with the option to add Chorizo or Steak. The amazing dish, made with bean puree, Oaxacan cheese, avocado puree and Jocoque, served over a thin and crunchy tortilla, has gotten praise from a variety of magazines, social media foodies and newspapers, including a great review from Orange County Register’s renowned food critic Brad A. Johnson.
“It’s the best Tlayuda in the OC,” wrote Johnson on his latest review of El Mercado Modern.
