Veggie Ceviche and other delights
Almost at the end of Mazunte as you head out on the road towards Las Croces de San Antonio and the road which leads to Pochutla or Puerto Escondido, and just opposite Empenada, sits the unassuming Restaurant Tania.
It looks little different to the other comedors that line the Calle Principal in Mazunte but is one of my favourites for a couple of reasons.
Firstly, the food is great and they have many vegetarian options. Secondly, they have wi-fi, which isn't as common as you might think along this stretch. Given the food quality, the right price and a reasonably comfortable and relaxed dining area this place is a good option.
The Chilaquiles are particularly good. This Mexican breakfast dish of fried tortillas in a spicy green or red salsa served with cheese, egg, beans and rice is a favourite of mine at any time of day. Their veggie burgers are pretty good and the croquettes of various types of vegetable, from potato to corn or zucchini are also very tasty. The first time I tried these they looked a little burnt but the flavour was excellent.
Another great veggie dish is the Ceviche de Soya. Replacing the traditional fish with tofu in this way makes a light but rewarding dish served with slices of orange and avocado.
The serving of tostadas along with a couple of delicious sauces with each meal adds a lot to the experience and their juices or flavoured waters are also great – the Jamaica (Hibiscus) water is very good.
