Mexico City & Food

FOOOOOOOOD!!!! I cannot tell you enough how misrepresented the food in Mexico is. The food here is complex and delicious and has a long history that has been passed down from generation to generation.

Anthony Bourdain said, “I would like people really to pay more for top-quality Mexican food. I think it’s the most undervalued, underappreciated world cuisine with tremendous, tremendous potential. These are in many cases really complex, wonderful sauces; particularly from Oaxaca, for instance, that date back from before Europe. I’m very excited about the possibilities for that cuisine, and I think we should pay more attention to it, learn more about it, and value it more. This is frankly a racist assumption that Mexican food or Indian food should be cheap. That’s not right.”

I, for one found the food in Mexico to be so full of flavor and it quickly became one of my favorite food destinations. While I was in Mexico City, I had the chance to take a food tour, which I highly recommend to any foodie out there.

We went to several local restaurants, and the Mercado San Juan (food market) to try different foods and learn about the growing process and history of it in Mexico. Did you know that there are close to 60 different types of corn varieties that are slowly disappearing.

Pujol is a world renowned restaurant in Mexico City, Mexico. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to visit this restaurant and taste the Mole Madre which they are famous for. The photos are a bit rough because it was so dark in the restaurant
