|Tostada Express - Tasty and Affordable|

Affordable, tasty lunches abound in Puerto Vallarta, as Cooking in Mexico continues to discover. This week we ate at Tostada Express at Plaza Peninsula and our only regret is that it is not closer to home. We were both so fixated on ceviche tostadas that we did not try any other menu options, a bad practice for a food writer, but a good excuse to eat there again soon.

True to its name, tostadas take top billing, though burritos, which they spell with an "a", as in burritas, are also offered. Prices range from $10 pesos for a ceviche tostada to $35 pesos for a shrimp tostada or burrito. All are served with salsas that do Mexico proud. You may have to order an extra tostada just to try all the different salsas.
Tostada toppings and salsas are made at the parent restaurant, Ocho Tostadas, and delivered fresh daily to the three Tostada Express locations, all on the north side of Puerto Vallarta.
