The land-locked Mexico City is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country. The historic attractions and beautiful natural views like the stunning Chapultepec Park are what make the city so loved. 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 during this festival!
Capirotada is essentially a bread pudding that is a traditional Mexican dessert served during Lent. It is made with milk, cheese, French bread, raisins, butter and peanuts, sometimes it is also topped with cinnamon and brown sugar.

Carnival celebrations are heaven for food lovers as streets vendors bring out their favourite creations. Try out the ‘Aguas Frescas’ or fruit flavoured water, or the crowd loved chicken and cheese-filled rolls called pambazos.
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. 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.
On certain days during Lent when people are forbidden from eating meat, fish soup is prepared. 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.
