“Foodie” City Suggestions in Mexico from Rick Bayless

11 Aug

Interested in what Mexican cities offer diverse Mexican foods for expats to try?

Lonely Planet features Mexico and US food travel tips from an American chef who specializes in traditional Mexican cuisine with modern interpretations, Rick Bayless:

What destinations would you suggest to travelers interested in exploring the diversity of Mexican cuisine?

Start with Mexico City – it has by far the greatest breadth of foods of anywhere in Mexico. You can find a little bit of everything in Mexico City from all over Mexico and elsewhere.

I generally say that there’s a culinary triangle in Mexico. If you go east from Mexico City and start in Puebla, go east to Veracruz, and south to Oaxaca. Veracruz is on the Gulf of Mexico, so it’s known for its seafood and a generally lighter style of cuisine.”
