Mercado del Puerto

Mercado del Puerto Review

For Montevideo's quintessential lunch experience, head to the old port market, a restored 1868 building of vaulted iron beams and colored glass, and a terrific example of urban renewal at its best. The market shields 14 stalls and eateries where, over large fires, the best asado (barbecue) in the city is cooked. It's a mix of casual lunch-counter places and sit-down restaurants. The traditional drink here is a bottle of medio y medio (champagne mixed with white wine). Many other eateries congregate outside around the perimeter of the building and are open for dinner as well as lunch.
