In a recent Forbes Magazine survey of the world’s best cities for dining, travelers from 20 nations ranked Mexico City fourth behind Paris, Rome and Tokyo, another reminder that it is well and truly on the restaurant map. However, as seasoned visitors and patriotic locals will tell you, wherever you go in this great country,delicious and diverse dining awaits you. Although the most popular dishes in this poll were tamales, chiles en nogada (stuffed Poblano chiles served in a creamy walnut sauce and topped with pomegranate seeds) and hot chocolate, the list is endless and each region has its own tasty offerings! In fact, there is so much variety that food historians and gourmets are lobbying to get the national cuisine declared World Heritage by UNESCO.
What are your favorite Mexican dishes? Do you like soft shell tacos filled with beef, guacamole and spicy salsa, the subtle flavor of the mole or chicken in chocolate-chile sauce served at Hacienda Sisal, or are you an enchilada fan? Or perhaps the very thought of fish, shrimp and lobster al mojo de ajo (in garlic butter) fresh from the grill in Captain’s Cove makes your mouth water.
