Tacos

Mercado Marimar is another Mexican restaurant tucked in the back of a Mexican grocery store. This time it's on South Park, which is a pretty great place to be. And, while this is no Taqueria Guadalajara, it does hold up its end pretty well for the cost. JM's burrito was full to busting with beans (not his favorite filler), rice, and delicious meat and veg. The sauces here were decent but some were just packaged salsas that had been opened for customers.

Nichole found her tacos pretty darn good, with a high cilantro-to-onion ratio and pleasing meats.

Mercado Marimar is near a lot of great taquerias and doesn't seem to match the high quality of La Rosita or Los Gemelos. As such, it is hard to imagine making a special trip JUST for these.  The best we can say is that its good to have more Mexican places of sufficient quality to keep the high quality places accountable.
