Carne Asada and Totopos
We turned around to eat at this food stand because the food smelled so good as we passed. It's called "Comedor Miriam," and it's about as rustic as they come, with chickens running around, a dirt floor and a giant tree growing out of the middle of the kitchen. The meat was incredible, served with beans, roast veggies, avocado, fresh cheese, salsa fresca and totopos, a cross between a crispy tortilla and a cracker.
The totopos are prepared similar to Indian naan bread, thrown against the inside of a round glazed oven cast in concrete. The little holes poked in them are to keep them from exploding.
It's very popular place, with lots of truck drivers and locals stopping as they travel along the coastal road between Oaxaca and Chiapas. The man that was eating before us told me that he travels for work and it's the best food stand for miles in any direction.
