I've been to Coyocan a number of times, but today's trek across town was to simply have lunch and try Tostados de Coyocan. Located in the heart of the Coyocan Market, it would be hard to miss this eaterie. In fact, it has to now be the single largest food venue in the market. I was lucky enough to get a stool at the main table where the tostadas were being prepared (by far, the best seat in the house)! Menus are hanging everywhere so it would be hard to miss what was available. Here, a few Spanish food words would come in handy such as pulpo or camaron. Order one tostado at a time. The ingredient of choice is spooned up generously and you'll more than likely want to try a couple different ones. From what I could see, tostados were either $25 or $35MX per tostada. Seafood tostadas were the more expensive ones. Oh, but what a treat! I tried both an octopus and a shrimp tostada and was equally pleased with both. Based upon your tastes and inclinations, there's probably not a bad choice to be made. Fruit water is avilable of $15MX. All in all, I had more than I could eat and didn't even come close to spending a ten dollar bill. This was a fun lunch spot. You won't believe how fast these guys can throw a tostada together. It was busy although I didn't really see anyone waiting. Sit down and the waiters working up and down the rows will have tostadoes in front of you in no time at all. A great experience to add to your visit to DF.

It's a testament to this in-market eatery that they have taken over a number of adjacent stalls than their primary one. The towering dishes piled with an assortment of tostada toppings is mouthwatering. I settled on ceviche, octopus, and mole chicken. All were stupendous but the ceviche was amazing. Just the right balance of lemon and spices. The only thing that stopped me from licking the plate clean was the crowd eating around me. Worth the visit.

I have made the trek out to Coyocan every time I have visited Mexico City, and a highlight has always been a mid afternoon snack at Tostados Coyacan. Hidden away in the heart of the market, it is well worth seeking out. Fish and shrimp cebiche is always top of my list; the fresh juices are also good. Definitely recommended.

hey everyone if you are looking for a great local place to eat near Frida Kahlo museum, do find this place inside of the Mercado Coyoacan. The tostadas are 35 pesos each and they are incredibly fresh! Don't be scared to order, just point and ask them how many tostadas you want. The agua refresca is incredibly refreshing also( i asked them and they are made from bottle water and i had no stomach problems). I wish i can go back there again.

If you follow the rule that you should only eat where others are eating, you should have no problem eating here, because at lunchtime it is more crowded than the metro at rush hour. Tostadas are around 30 pesos each, substantial and delicious. The ceviches (octopus, shrimp) are superb. The 'special' shrimp tostada is spicy. Everything comes out at room temperature, so even the meat dishes will be cold, which tastes funny and violates one of the cardinal rules of safe eating, but is possibly necessary to keep the tostada crisp .I've never gotten sick from eating here, and I try to get here every time I'm in Mexico City. Neighboring stalls will try to lure you in, but don't do it; go for the original place.
