Puebla’s must-try dishes
Without a doubt, Mole Poblano is a defining flavor for Mexican cuisine and a signature dish from Puebla. Typically made with more than 20 ingredients, with a predominant flavor of cocoa and chili peppers, and served on top of chicken with a side of rice. Another signature dish from this gastronomic capital that you can’t miss is the famous Chile en Nogada, consisting of a large poblano chili stuffed with picadillo meat and other ingredients and spices. Unlike mole, this dish is enjoyed only from August till mid-September.
A tasting tour through Oaxaca
Of course you can’t travel to Oaxaca and not visit one of the many distilleries for a Mezcal tasting tour, where you can learn about its origin and process and try some of the flavors of Oaxaca’s spirit.
Oaxaca also has one of the biggest markets in the country, the Abastos Market, being more than 800 acres. They are in fact so popular that it is featured in Netflix’s series of unmissable locations, Somebody Feed Phil. You can see and taste basically any food,from fruits, vegetables, Mezcal, any cheese you can imagine, and much more.
Mexico City’s as a street food capital
Definitely a city that needs to be on your foodie list! CDMX, as locals call it, is a gastronomic metropolis. But if you want to really dig into Mexican cuisine, you must indulge into the street food world. At the top of the list is Tacos Al Pastor, a pork-like meat sliced right from the “trompo” with a slice of pineapple and some “salsa verde” for a little spiciness, you won’t regret it.
