Have you read either of my previous posts about our trip to Mexico City last week during my birthday? If not, you should stop and read Part One now (or at least look at the pictures) because I guarantee that seeing the food will make you want to stop everything and go. Okay? (Part two is coming!) Bueno. Now that that’s over with, for this week’s What I Ate Wednesday, here are some food highlights from our week in Mexico City.
Most days, B and I just walked to a local coffee shop and enjoyed something quick before a full day ahead of us. My favorite breakfast was the guava bread and fresh mango B and I shared on my birthday. B’s favorite breakfast was probably Huevos Divorciados – fried eggs with green salsa on one side, red on the other.
We stuck to the local typical food and enjoyed tacos, guacamole, enchiladas, molcajete and other Mexican local cuisine for lunch and dinner most days. Some of my favorites included the guacamole with grasshoppers we made in the cooking class, the molcajete (look at all that food in that mortar/pestle style bowl) and the tacos we sampled at Tacos Califa on my birthday.
Depending on what we had for lunch, dinner varied. We enjoyed seafood, more tacos and guacamole and even local soup. I enjoyed it all!
Mexico City has a ton of bakeries and we definitely enjoyed our fair share of treats. Some of my favorites included their Conchas (the cookies below the heart-shaped cookie) and the pastel de elote (this super moist corn cake).
YUM. I want to go back now and eat it all again!
Some questions for you:
- Do you like Mexican food? What’s your favorite?
- Ever eaten grasshoppers? What’s the weirdest thing you’ve eaten?

Woah, it looks like you had SO many good eats. Authentic Mexican food is AMAZING. So thankful that God created so many different cultures, people, and foods! 🙂
I love how casually you said “guacamole with grasshoppers”… very impressive.
I’m glad you had a fun trip! The food look outrageous!
Grasshoppers? I can’t say I’ve ever tried those. That farmer’s market with avocados and limes looks so pretty, and cactus leaves? Cool! I would go to Mexico just for the food.
All of that food looks so amazing! Everytime my husband and I go anywhere tropical/warm, we find a place where we can just get a ton of fruit, some bacon and coffee for breakfast because the fruit is always phenomenal!
Grasshoppers in the guacamole? Um…..ew? However, what a fun day of eats- where did you take that cooking class? Looks like fun- minus the grasshoppers.
What an awesome birthday trip! I don’t know about the grasshoppers though… I’d try a bite at least. But ewwwww… LOL
Did you really eat grasshoppers?
Of course! I had them twice 🙂 two different meals/occasions
Wow! Everything looks so good! Makes me want to visit South/Central America again!
