The Dove Marketplace, a 34,000 square foot building with Elizabeth Eve’s inviting mural, is a key project from the Esparanza Community Housing Corporation. The community-minded organization leases first floor stalls to artisans and food vendors, some of which are very good. Chitzen Itza chef Gilberto Cetina started serving Yucatan cuisine in 2001, including cochinita pibil, papadzules, and poc chuc. His son, Gilberto Centina, Jr., added a Holbox counter in the middle of the market, featuring Yucatan-style seafood. His menu changes frequently based on market finds, but might include whole wood-grilled branzino, spot prawn & scallop aguachile bathing in Serrano-spiked lime juice, and beer-battered soft-shell crab plated atop avocado cucumber puree in a pool of soy sauce. Raul Morales opened Taqueria Vista Hermosa in 2000, and this stall serves Michoacan style tacos like spit-roasted pastor, carne asada and citrus-marinated chicken. Oaxacalifornia, from Juan and Sofia Antonio, serves ice cream in tropical flavors like guanabana and mamey, plus aguas frescas made with fruits such as cantaloupe and chilacayote with sweet squash strands, seeds and a lime sorbet cap. Azla Mekonnen, daughter Nez Abegaze and their family opened colorful Azla in 2013, featuring an Ethiopian vegan food in the former Mo-chica space. Go with their vegetable combo, which teams springy rolled injera (teff flatbread) with preparations like bitter gomen (kale + collards + garlic); misir (red lentils + spicy berbere); and slightly sweet fasolia (carrots + green beans + caramelized onions).
