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, cheese, and sometimes cabbage, avocado, and tomatoes.

Sometimes called 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).
