I eat here almost every morning. The old Mexican authenticity is great and the food is FANTASTIC. I take the El Centro bus to the Mercado Publico and walk all the way to the back right stall. Everything I have ever tried there has been great. If you want the real Mexican feel and the best Mexican food you have... More

Had to try the green chicken enchiladas here and they may have been the best I ever had. Service is friendly and quick, very hot day for lunch but the fans made it nice. Favorite straight mexican for breakfast and lunch. In the central market along with other restaurants, butcher shops, fish markets, produce markets and souvenir shops with better... More

Being Mexican living overseas, we always try to look for the most authentic Mexican dishes when we travel to Mexico. We have eaten at Zulema's twice in the last few days and will most likely be back for more. My husband is addicted to enchiladas verdes (chicken). His face transformed after trying just one bite of Zulema's enchiladas, which by... More

I had read about and heard from the locals that this was the best place for a great chili relleno. They were right, as I ate here 4 times last week. Just take the bus to mercado municipal and walk right in. There are 4 little restaurants lined up, be sure to go to this one.

Chilaquiles were to die for. Best breakfast we ever had in Baja in over 40 trips. This is a Mexican version of a food court but no hotdog on a stick here. The restaurant is inside the municipal macardo with about 5 others that have shared seating in the middle. You will not have to go to the counter to... More

I hesitate to review this restaurant!!! If I tell everyone how much we enjoy it then it may get to crowded. We go and are usually the only American Gringos there. I feel like we are treated with kindness. I do not know much Spanish but they know enough English to help us floundering over what to order. We go... More

This place is one of about 6 or 7 food booths at the Municipal Market which all face a common seating area. Initially we felt a bit out of place as the other patrons did not appear to be tourists, but we soon were made to feel at home. The person who took our order spoke decent English which certainly...
