Taste best dishes from Mexico

It’s famous, spicey snd hot. That’s why we fall in love with Mexican food. The great time you’ll spend with Mexican food will make your stomach demand another round. Let us show you.

AGUACHILE DE CAMARON, CANTINA RIVIERA DEL SUR

One of the most memorable aguachile: raw prawns, quickly cured with a splash of acidic coconut ash dressing, then garnished with beautiful fresh vegetables and succulents. (Calle de Chiapas 174, Roma Nte.)

ELOTE, CHILLI AND EPAZOTE POZOLE, OZUMBA REGIONAL MARKET

This market (70 kilometres south-east of Mexico City) has amazing fresh produce. I had this humble little cup of soup an old lady was serving off the back of her bicycle. It was white corn, epazote (fresh green herb) and a hint of chilli – so good.

CONTRAMAR’S PESCADO A LA TALLA

This world-famous dish is a must for anyone travelling to Mexico City – the red and green marinated fish is grilled and served with black beans and a house hot sauce.

MOLE MADRE 1299 DAYS, MOLE NUEVO, PUJOL

The flavour profile is like nothing I’ve eaten before. It’s two different mole sauces presented on a plate, the lighter colour one is a fresh sauce made that day or the day before and is very boisterous and bouncy while the darker one is an aged sauce – 1299 days old when I was there last and is rich, deep and smoky. Eaten together they are amazing.

ANT LARVAE TACO, MERCADO DE SAN JUAN

You need to find a shop that sells both insects and tacos – it sounds outrageous, but trust me, they’re there and if you muster up the courage they are really quite delightful. Served with a little house red chilli and tomato salsa and a load of fresh herbs, think warm oysters in texture but nutty and herbaceous. As they say, “When in Mexico …” (Calle de Ernesto Pugibet No. 21.)
