It is highly recommended that you stop in some of the “sodas” (food stalls) and have a snack, an empanada (a stuffed bread or pastry, baked or fried), or sandwiches of all kinds. Also, there are a huge number of urban peasants that sell their fresh products at a good price.

However, it is not recommended a visit after dark, because this point is called “red area” for being a significant spot for prostitution and thefts.
