The Menu at Los Hijos de la Tostada
There are tostadas (tostadas are a fried tortilla with topping that can be eaten with your hands and/or fork). The tostadas are seafood based with creative sauces. What we really like about their tostadas is some of them come on a semi sweet tasting fried base, the fresh seafood, and delicious sauces. For example the top photo is the “camaron roca” tostada. It is a battered shrimp tostada with chipotle dressing and then drizzled with a red wine reduction sauce.
There are hot and cold served tostadas. There are other non tostada menu items as well like ceviches.
They do have one burger on the menu. It is a tuna burger and it is so good it made it onto our Hamburger Guide to Playa Del Carmen.
Prices are about 38-62 pesos per tostada. These are a little more then other places but the value definitely makes up for it. Most people can eat about two tostadas for a meal.
At the original location there are a few small tables inside the restaurant in air-conditioning and bar stools at the counter. Outside there is sidewalk seating. This restaurant is a small corner bistro that is very casual.
The new location on 5th Avenue is a great place to sit and people watch and the vibe is casual and fun.
You have to be sure to go for lunch or dinner here while in Playa Del Carmen. The tasty meal will leave you satisfied and the friendly guys working there will take care of you. you get good value here and the combinations of sauces and seafood is very good. We look forward to going back again to keep working our way through the menu, see you there!
