Cuxta – Tacos at the food market

Cuxta is a party for your senses.

From the moment you arrive at this stall in the Mercado de la Cebada market you will be captivated by how it smells -smell. Take a seat at the counter, close to the kitchen, and you will enjoy a nice conversation with the chef -hearing. At the same time that you see how Osvaldo, the chef, prepares your food -sight. And most importantly, enjoy their street style food -taste and touch.

They have a short menu with a wholesome selection of Mexican street food, beers, tequilas and cocktails. But heads up, if you call them up one or two days before you plan to go, you could even order some dishes off the menu that they do not normally prepare, like tlacoyos, tamales, chilaquiles -the best I have ever had in Spain hands down- or any other dish the chef will make to surprise you.

Cuxta’s opening times are slightly different from the market’s. As such, don’t panic if you find the market closed, the entrance to the parking lot connects with the market. A clandestine finishing touch.
