On my way to the fair I stumbled upon this taco trailer advertising “Mexican Tacos.” I love Mexican tacos, so I ordered three al pastor tacos. They were good and they cost $1 each, my favorite price.

I went back a day later and ordered a shrimp tostada. The shrimp are medium sized and served cold with pico de gallo and avocado; a great choice for a hot day. The only problem with the tostada is the crispy corn tortilla that broke into pieces when I bit into it. Maybe this is not a problem with the tostada but a problem with the biter? Either way, this biter ended up with the tostada toppings on his shirt and lap. That did not stop him (once I switched from first person to third person I couldn’t switch back) from eating 90% of the shrimp tostada. He ended up eating it like chips and salsa, picking up the broken pieces and dipping them into the pico de gallo. The tostada cost $3.50, the price of a corn dog at the fair.
