It’s said that ‘Have Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper’ which makes breakfast the most important meal of the day. And if you are travelling in Mexico City then you must try their big fat traditional breakfast that can keep you satisfied for hours together.

The Mexicans have their lunch late, so breakfast is generally very heavy. It is customary to eat something light after waking up and have ‘almuerzo (brunch)’ later on. Some people also have different courses in breakfast. Check out some traditional foods that are a part of a typical Mexican breakfast and can be easily available at your hotel or any restaurant.

1. Chilaquiles

Fried corn tortillas are mixed with sauce, cheese, finely sliced onion and parsley and a dollop of cream to make this hugely popular breakfast meal. They are usually served with beans and vegetables or meat.

2. Huevos a la Mexicana

The Huevos a la Mexicana are scrambled eggs made with onions, tomatoes and chillies. The colour of the dish resembles a Mexican flag, from where it derives its name.

3. Pan Dulce

Another favourite is the ‘pan dulce’ or sweet bread with coffee or hot chocolate. You can also try atole with it for an exotic taste.
