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.
