Mexico City food was amazing and some of our more expensive, 3-course meals cost around $12. We would go back just for the food alone.
First, we had a variety of tamales that really opened our eyes to what a tamale could be. They included blackberry, pineapple, chorizo, and something like a leek that I can’t remember the name of. Ever since then, we’ve been on the hunt for tamales anywhere we go.
Second, we had our favorite tacos of all time. (And we eat a lot of tacos).
And just for fun, here is the tortilla machine at the place with the tacos above. Nicole got a kick out of it.
