You can’t start a holiday trip without a german beer. 😉 Photo taken at the Munich airport.
I forgot to take a photo of Chili en nogales, so here’s another traditional dish (sorry, don’t remember the name). On the left side of the plate there is Nachos cheese and on the right side there is black chili. In the middle of the plate is a normal tortilla filled with chicken and some vegetables. Photo taken in Ciudad de Mexico.
Corona. The cheapest Corona in Ciudad de Mexico was 13 pesos ($1.3 or less than 1€). Other famous Mexican beers are: Sol, Indio, Bohemia, Victoria, Dos Equis and Pacifico. Photo taken in Ciudad de Mexico.
Markets offer lots of local specialties, which aren’t recommended for foreigners. We didn’t care about those recommendations and tried a vegetarian black tortilla (bean sauce, green beans, cheese, parsley and hot chili sauce). Photo taken in Ciudad de Mexico.
Enchiladas con pollo. Enchiladas is almost as famous as a taco, but you almost never get a style-wise identical Enchiladas. This one had empty tortillas at the bottom layed like pancakes and those were covered with thin slices of chicken and cheese. The whole dish was “swimming” in a sauce made of cheese, oil and some other unknown ingredients. Photo taken in Ciudad de Mexico.
There are many small, family-owned restaurants along the road around the famous volcano Popocatepetl (Mexican abreviation is just Popo). One of those restaurants offered me a Bistec (a Mexican thin steak). A daughter of the house made about five tortillas and the mother made me the steak. Of course, I didn’t get just a steak – there were a few sauces (see next photo), two avocados and cooked beans. Photo taken on the road arond Popo.
Three sauces for the ultimate Bistec pleasure. A green and a red chili sauce (those two with slight variations are provided in every restaurant in Mexico) were spicy and the third white-rose sauce was sweet (reminded me of yogurt). Photo taken on the road arond Popo.
A taco bar at the main square in Puebla. This time five sauces were provided – all spicy. Ok, the top right one is not actually a sauce, but onions with some special spicy ingredients. Photo taken in Puebla.
The same restaurant in Puebla also had a milk shake menu. Mexicans love shakes, so I had to try one. You can see a fresh papaya shake on the photo. Photo taken in Puebla.
Puebla is famous for its traditional food. One of the famous dishes are tacos covered with chocolate and onions. Friendly advice: always drink a tequilla after a traditional Mexican dish. Photo taken in Puebla.
We bought some cookies at Puebla’s bus station. The photo is really bad, but the cookie with honey was delicious. 🙂
A crowded market in Taxco. A nice place to eat a breakfast (and forget about various recommendations for foreigners). We ate spicy tortilla plates with various meat and vegetables. One of the tortillas was made like a Calzone pizza. I drank a fresh and cold “Jamaica” juice. Photo taken in Taxco.
We tried a higher-end restaurant in Morelia. Apart from traditional Mexican food, really interesting was the appatizer – some sweet baked roles covered with a red chili sauce and a sour cream. Photo taken in Morelia.
Very hot chilis (almost as hot as in Macedonia or some parts of Asia) on a bus station on our way to Real de Catorce. I could only eat 2/3 of one chilli. Photo taken in Matehuala.
Well, you can’t start a day without a healthy American breakfast. 🙂 Scrambled eggs, grilled bacon, hash browns, toast and ketchup. Photo taken in Boulder city (near the Hoover dam and Vegas, baby).
I lost somewhere the photo of my chinese noodle soup. So, here’s a photo from Beijing Buffet in South San Francisco (near the SFO airport). Beijing Buffet is an “all you can eat” chinese restaurant (with some dishes from Japan and Korea)… 🙂 Well, I ate two plates per dinner, but I didn’t shoot photos every time. On this photo you can see (from top to bottom): shrimps made in cocoa, chinese duck, chicken with brocolli, sushi, chicken with onion and cuttlefish. Photo taken in San Francisco.
A fun lovin’ criminal drinks a large Miller draft. The cheapest beer in Gringoland was in a rather big Casino in Carson city (Nevada), where I earned $12.75 in a machine poker game (good enough for a few $2.75 Miller drafts – funny, there’s no tax on beer in some bars in Nevada). Photo taken on a gas station in Utah (!).
