It’s not really the food that matters at El Mercado

LA Weekly restaurant critic Jonathan Gold sums up the chief attraction of eating on the third floor of the food hall and shopping center known as El Mercado in Boyle Heights.

“There are many, many better places to eat Mexican food in this part of town, but after a carnitas plate, a fistful of Modelo Especials and an hour of music from the two or three mariachi bands that often play at the same time, you are unlikely to care.”
