Mercado 20 de Noviembre information
Dozens of good, clean comedores inside this large market serve up tasty, traditional Oaxacan and Mexican staples. The biggest treat for carnivores is the hugely popular Pasillo de Carnes Asadas (Grilled Meat Passage) on the east side, where a dozen stands specialize in grilling tasajo or cecina enchilada (slices of chili-coated pork) over hot coals.
A half-kilogram of tasajo or cecina for M$80 to M$100, with a couple of M$15 sides of grilled onions, guacamole, radishes or nopal (prickly pear cactus, without the prickles) should more than satisfy two people.
