Passed by on the Sunday morning during the flea market rush; fortunately there was no line up. Numerous local snacks that I wanted to try, but good portions made it challenging. Hope to come back to try the other items.

La Latina
La Latina is a charming neighbourhood with two unique
personalities. At first glance, it’s distinctly
old-world, with narrow streets weaving a maze among
charming stone buildings in sunny, bright colors like
yellow and pink. The other side of La Latina is
characterized by a young population and a bohemian
vibe, as evidenced by a dynamic and evolving selection
of new bars, shops, coworking spaces, and other
