Photo from the Road: Tostadas at the Coyoacan Mercado

Take a seat at the stall in the Coyoacan Mercado in Mexico City to enjoy some tostadas. The tortilla is deep fried and piled high with your choice of toppings. First we had one with shredded beef, beans, lettuce, tomato, cheese, avocado, and three choices of salsa to pile on top of that. For the second round I chose the ceviche over octopus, shrimp, tuna, and chicken. Ours cost 30 pesos, US$2.50 each. Wash it down with any flavor agua fresco and you are having yourself a wonderful Sunday morning.
