Some of you who read The Travelling Chopsticks regularly, may wonder why I never write about Mexican food, and I really must admit to you that when I first moved to Mexico, I really wasn’t all that impressed with it (I can almost hear your disappointment in me!)
I really don’t know why I didn’t like it – maybe it was a combination of eating in the wrong places, or not really knowing what to eat – but I just always felt uninspired. However until recently this view has begun to change, and change quite drastically at that, and I find myself even starting to crave certain dishes! I had even thought to start being more adventurous, and begin to showcase the best Mexico has to offer on this blog.
Then coincidently, ‘C’ came across this article on Matador called “10 foods to try in Mexico”, and I just felt I had to share it with you. The author of this post Sarah Menkedick, did such a fantastic job not only in the way she describes the food, but also through the brilliant pictures she uses – that I instantly knew that this would be the best way to introduce you all to what ‘real’ Mexican food is all about (forget the TexMex rubbish…although, *Shhh* don’t tell anyone, but I secretly still love it!)
The only thing I would have done differently however is to substitute the Mole with Mescal…but that is entirely my own preference, for some reasons I just can’t seem to get over that brown viscous sauce!!
I hope you enjoy this article as much as I did:
