One of the most culturally diverse states in Mexico is also one of the most well-known culinary destinations. Thanks to the cultural diversity in Oaxaca, the cuisine is equally varied and exquisite. Some of the top recommended foods to try include chapulines which are fried grasshoppers, as well as giant tortillas known as tlayudas. We also recommend seeking out tamales, mole, and quesillos to get a good taste of Oaxaca.


Two of the city’s signature dishes, mole poblano and chiles nogada, were developed by convent nuns by blending European and Mexican ingredients together. Mole poblano and chiles en nogada are excellent dishes to try while visiting. Another must try includes a walk down candy street, known as la calle de los dulces, to try some of Puebla’s best traditional sweets.


UNESCO proclaimed that the best Mexican food in Mexico is part of humanity’s cultural heritage and they even gave Michocan, the state, special mention for its traditional cooking practices. There is no better place to enjoy the state’s varied and delicious dishes, than its capital, Morelia. We recommend trying uchepos, a maize dish which can be sweet enough to be served as a desert. We also think that their carnitas and enchiladas placeras are well-worth trying. Churipo, which is a delicious native beef based soup, is also a great way to experience the local cuisine.


Merida is the capital of Yucatan (the state) and offers a sample of Yucatan’s most distinctive cuisines. Mayan and European flavors are frequently combined for exquisite and unusual flavors. Some of the dishes travelers to the area should seek out include: sopa de lime, queso relleno, cochinita pibil, and papadzules.
