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?
