Outside the Mexico Pavilion, Las Posadas serves south-of-the-border dishes.

Best of the Booth
I am so conflicted here. The Giant Tostada is both too expensive at $10.50 and very delicious. I think I have a mental break at $10 for festival food. At that point, I want a table and a chair. As a Festival regular, I have eaten the equivalent of a Who Feast on trash can “tables” over the last few years, but it seems less degrading when the dish is a thrifty $4.50 or at least of sharing size.
While this tostada is indeed “giant” it’s not an easy share since it shatters with the first break. You’ll need to be on a communal germ basis with someone to share more than one bite of this one. It is delicious, but it’s impossible to give an unreserved recommendation given the price. I’m conflicted so I’ll say get this one if you aren’t on a budget.
Rest of the Booth
Skip the tamale. It’s $8.00 and doesn’t deserve to share the same hemisphere as the one they presented last year. It’s fine but we went in expecting and hoping for the same outrageous tamale love we had last year. Not even close. The Churros are nice, but probably overpriced by $2 for our level of happiness. There are other sweet options that will offer more yum and cost you less.
