If you want to experience authentic Mexican food at local prices, head to the Municipal Market, next to the post office on Avenida Guerrero. Here hardworking women operate a row of outdoor food stands where working folk and students pay around $4 for the comida corrida, the meal of the day with soup, entree, and drink. The menus posted behind the counter typically include tacos, enchiladas, and various meat and fish dishes. Place your order, wait to pick it up, and settle in a plastic chair at a table covered with bright, flowered oilcloth. Hint: Pick a stand with the most people chowing down for a great meal. I’m also fond of the rotiscerias scattered around town, where you can get half a roasted chicken, rice, beans, and tortillas for around $7.
