Lunch Rush at the Central Market in Sucre (Pic du Jour)

Mercado Central lunch rush. Sucre, Bolivia, 08-Apr-2013

Here are a few shots from the food court in Sucre’s Central Market, my favorite lunch spot in the city. At top is a quick snap of this afternoon’s lunch rush.

After spending more than two months with the hefty prices in both Argentina and Chile, Bolivia’s kindness on the wallet is much appreciated. Saturday’s two-course lunch, below –a hearty chicken soup and the heaping entree– set me back 10 Bolivianos, or USD 1.44 / EUR 1.11.

Lunchtime.
Lunchtime.

Today I splurged and went for the trout, at 18 Bolivianos, or USD 2.60 / EUR 1.99.

Looking forward to tomorrow’s offerings. 🙂 A few more shots.

    ah, those lunch specials look great. what’s the small round-ish starchy looking side dish in the first lunchtime photo? they look like little beads! z

      They’re a beady noodle. 🙂 Never seen them before.
