Seafood-centric Mexican spot La Tostaderia has only been at Grand Central Market for a couple of years, but it has already achieved staple status. Go for the fish ceviche tostada - a tangy mix of white fish, tomato, onion and cucumber, smothered in lime and topped with avocado. Be sure to make liberal use of the Tapatío they hand over with your order. It’s a tasty, fresh change from the heavy offerings found around most of the market.
