MEXICO CITY

GASTRONOMY


With its strong flavours and tempting aromas, the delicious food of the City of Mexico has an identity of its own. Its spicy, suggestive and weighty dishes are born from an unusual gastronomy crossbreeding that intertwines pre-Hispanic, Spanish and French roots.

The bean, the corn and the chilli are the holy trinity of the Aztec culinary offering and they get more than one prayer or praise out of the loyal devotees who congregate at restaurants and fondas to worship the delicious omelettes and tacos, and the enchiladas and quesadillas, amongst other dishes.

One of the emblematic recipes of the city is the corn omelette, which is served accompanied by a homemade or raw sauce prepared with green and red tomatoes, and chiplote (a variety of chilli). Equally suggestive are the stuffed chilli, cram-full of cheese, fish or seafood, along with grains of elote (tender corn) and little pumpkins, amongst other ingredients.

The menu does not end here. Along this tasty "way of the cross", the epicure must bare in mind that it is not recommendable to disdain or despise the weighty tamales, a dough stuffed with meat, fruit or cheese, wrapped with banana leafs and cooked in steam; or the mole, an splendid stew of meat prepared with a sauce based on chilli, sesame, almonds, raisins, bitter chocolate and other ingredients.

But the most popular delightfulness of the Aztec gastronomy is the whims, sublime appetizers which due to the strength of their taste have reached beyond the country's borders. The favourite hors d'oeuvre are the tacos, corn omelettes stuffed with beans or cheese, accompanied by guacamole (avocado sauce); the chilaquiles, fried omelettes with milk cream and chilli sauce; and the quesadillas, half-moon shape patties stuffed with melted cheese.

  • The classical corridas, a menu of four traditional dishes accompanied by the waters, a squash of fruits flavoured down with water, are served at lunchtime at the fondas, local restaurants with economic prices.

    If you are looking for haute cuisine dishes, you will find a very sophisticated menu at the restaurants of the Mexican nouvelle cuisine. And if you are bold enough, be encouraged to try the exotic pre-Hispanic food, which offers dishes of delicate taste, based on flowers and insects.

    When you are done exploring the local taste, do not hesitate and visit international food restaurants of the City of Mexico. In its cosmopolitan greatness, the capital of the country offers a space to the best gastronomies of the world, places where you can try French, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Italian and Arab flavours, to mention but a few. We do not wish to keep you salivating.
