The colourful Mexico City is no stranger when it comes to fun and festivities. With almost every day being celebrated, the friendly people and the historic and natural landmarks makes it a popular tourist destination to visit. There are a number restaurants in Mexico City that you can visit, but don’t forget to try out the city’s most popular Mexican cuisine.
One of Mexico’s most popular dishes, the Guacamole is popular since the time of the Aztecs. It is made from mashed avocados, tomatoes, chilli peppers, onions, and lemon juice all combined and eaten with tortilla chips or used as a side dish.
Dating back to Mayan times, Enchiladas are very popular in Mexico City and is often eaten for breakfast or as brunch. Corn flour tortillas are filled with cheese, meat, beans, seafood, vegetables or anything you like and then covered in chilli sauce to get the perfect spice.
Easily known as the Mexican version of ‘corn on the cob’, vendors selling it can be seen at nearly every nook and corner in Mexico City. The corn is essentially boiled, and then served in cups, or directly on a stick with salt, chilli powder, cheese, butter and sour cream added as per your taste.
Another popular breakfast dish in Mexico City is Chilaquiles. The corn tortillas are lightly fried, then cut into quarter pieces and topped with red salsa, scrambled eggs, chicken and also some cheese and cream. And like most Mexican dishes, it is also topped with fried beans. Delicious!
