Tlayudas are a signature food item on the Oaxaca menu. These are thick corn pancakes, larger than tostadas (30+ centimeters in diameter) and usually topped with pork lard, beans and cheese and sometimes cabbage, avocado and tomatoes.

Popular name: the 'Oaxacan Pizza.'

Tip: Ask for the tlayuda 'bien tostada' so that it breaks up in multiple parts

Tip - If you want a vegetarian diet, ask the waiter to hold the lard (asiento). The exception are the tlayudas prepared with vegetable oil at the Friday/Saturday Pochimilco Market.
