3 Marvellous Mexican Munchies

Thursday, July 24, 2014

Today I tucked into a taste of Mexico, as I went for lunch with one good friends to my favourite burrito and nachos place in town.


Whilst indulging in some guacamole and nachos I began thinking about all the amazing street food that we got to sample on last summers adventure, #ETLCA.

Mexico City is full of amazing local hang outs where you can indulge in tasty delights. So, I thought I would list my favourite Mexican munchies for you to check out or make at home.

1. Guacamole, Refried Beans and Nachos

Whether you are going to restaurant or just a bar, you will more than often be served up some complementary (not all places do this, but most do) guacamole, refried beans and nachos. A tasty and slightly healthy snack to keep you going - and great if you're on a budget...that's lunch sorted hehe.

2. Meat Tacos 

The best local food I ate in Mexico, we found a little restaurant off the Zocolo Square and for £1.00 you received 3 stuffed meat (I say meat as my Spanish isn't great and it was hard to decipher the actual meat content) Tacos and a drink - plus free guacamole.

3. Chicken Tortas

The day I  discovered chicken tortas was a very happy one, as I was craving a good old sandwich and this local delight did not disappoint. Costing us £2.50 with a drink, we tucked into carved roast chicken on a toasted bread roll. It did have a little too much spice for my tastes - but it still went down a treat!

Watching this video of  Mexican food stall (I'm pretty sure I ate at on the way to Lucha Libre) they explain about all the popular choices of street food in Mexico City...and yes I tried the meat of 'animal face' and it was pretty darn tasty.
