El Merkury is a dream project walking to reality!

El Merkury is a dream project walking to reality. The concept is Central American Street food and the inspiration behind the menu is the Mayan food staples.

In case you skipped that history lesson- Mayans were gatherers first, hunters second, and their diet was based on corn, beans, chillis and chocolate (from this choice of foods you can tell they were obvs smart). These staples are also the basis for our Merk menu.

The idea behind this concept is that we can represent the under-represented countries whose perceptions are sometimes shadowed by news that sell (murder, criminals, drugs) and instead shine a different light by showing the awesomeness that they have. In other words we want to represent Central America through food!

In addition to our savory street food we have made-to-order churros served on top of house vanilla soft serve. You can’t miss this dessert.
