There are some days when we find that we have too much time on our hands. Although these moments do not come by easily and are often unexpected, there should always be a backup plan to turn these extra few hours into something fun and educational.

Vietnamese Grilled Pork with Vermicelli

Crispy Corn Kebabs

Do not be fooled by its name. These corn kebabs look nothing likes the commonly imagined Middle-Eastern or Turkish kebabs. Instead they resemble more of a cross between a vegetarian corn dog, and a croquette.

Easy Fried Daikon Mochi Cake

Food at Mercado draws mostly on Spanish cuisine with some International & Western influences. This can easily be seen in some items offered such as bulgur, couscous and beetroot salad. Bordering on a healthy living approach, this eatery will not disappoint as well if you are into substantial portions...
