First breakfast


This was a small meal before breakfast, on the first day in Oaxaca. A small stand that served: hot chocolate, milk, juices, and tortas.
 A torta is bread roll filled with everything imaginable; from lettuce and ham to smoked meats and/or seafood. I decided to try one torta of tamal, or Guajolotas as commonly called in Mexico City, it's a very typical meal especially by the south of Mexico and mostly characterized as a meal for the poor. After all a filling and cheap food, and quite delicious.
Now for the hot chocolate, this stand had warm milk just ready to be prepared. They use this molinillo or wooden whisk to prepare and mix well the grainy and coarse chocolate.
Two hot chocolates and the torta were for 25 pesos.
I love to eat here.
