If you are travelling during Easter to Mexico City, then besides wandering through the city sightseeing, don’t forget to try out some traditional food delicacies specially made for the holidays. Enjoy!

Vegetable Delicacies

Have you ever had a cactus in your meal? Nopal is a flat-leaved cactus that is used as a versatile food item used in a variety of recipes. Considered part fruit and part vegetable, it is used in salads and tacos with eggs. If that isn’t your thing then you can also try out Chacales; a soup made with dried white corn.  

Seafood Dishes

On certain days during Lent when people are forbidden from eating meat, Fish soup is eaten in bulk. You can try out Pipian sauce covered on raw shrimp or even grab a bite of the dried shrimp patties made with a wild plant known as Romerito.

Carnival Dishes
