Mexico City is one of the world’s greatest cities for street food.

Coyoacan Market is one of our favourite markets in CDMX, the fresh produce, meat and seafood stalls are neat to wander around, there are lots of handicrafts and there is a tonne of food to eat including some of Mexico City’s best tostadas.

The tostadas looked so scrumptious the avocado was a big selling point with me! The tomato 🍅really makes a taco or tostada more enjoyable they are fresh and brighten up a dish!

I’ve been there and tried their tostadas. I can say without a doubt that they are some of the best tostadas I’ve ever had. I miss it.


Hi Sheena. It was amazing that you used survival Spanish phrases while you were in Mexico. Really. Greetings from Lima, Peru.
