  • Highly recommended, if you want to eat rich, affordable, and a real experience of real interaction of cultures, Tirso de Molina is the place. I was motivated by a culinary critique of magazine weekend which he spoke about a very good bite. Juanito pots, worth, a fabulous preparation of its dishes like soup that is included in the dish and that unique spicy sauce. Recommended. Average per person cost $5 pesos

  • Despite the market environment that is dirty and dangerous, the most are the best. I have traveled many Peruvian restaurants from uptown to small restaurants in the province, but the best seasoning and relationship price, quantity, quality is in the Tirso de Molina. Today I called the possibilities where Tommy and tasted Colombian and Peruvian food... Excellent. The staff were very friendly.

  • The vegetables are fresh, you will find an exciting variate of fruits and vegetables. Yes a bit dirty and smelly but is worth it to find exotic herbs.
  • I found this much more interesting than Mercado Central just across the river. It had great, cheap food and drinks, in addition to great produce. AUD $3/kilo avocados, $2/kilo strawberries, cheese, deli meats etc.
  • Bonitas las cosas.
  • Good place for buy groceries and eat. Really chip. I love it
  • I went for some gluten wheat and ingredients for a vegan christmas and i found all that i wanted, this place have everything.
