Pan Titlan

Pantitlan, a metro station on the eastern side of Mexico City, is the terminus for four different metro lines and on many occasions I have found myself passing through.  On a recent trip, when I found myself again changing trains in Pantitlan, I stumbled upon Pan Titlan, a little bakery at the ground level of the station.  “Pan” means bread in spanish; and, at the time and for whatever reason, I thought that this play on the name of the station was hilarious.

In hindsight, I don’t find the name to be so funny now.  That said, the pasties (a local baked treat) were some of the best I’ve had… light, flakey puff pastry, with a filling of chicken in smokey and sweet mole.  It might be worth a trip back, just for another.
