Mexican specialties are some of the best food I’ve ever tasted and some foods I truly missed.
In Australia we do have Mexican food, but I t really is tex mex. I’ve found some more restaurants recently in Melbourne that have a more typical feel and are more true to the cuisine of Mexico, but mostly you can’t beat the real deal.
Tortas, liquados, tostadas, fijitas con pollo, tacos de arrachera, pescado fresco con mango salsa y chilli, pecante, chilli, salsa and more spicy.
My first morning in mexico was in Cancun where we managed to find a group of restaurants/ cantinas that I’d actually visited 3.5 years prior when travelling with friends in my Semana Santa. I remember the exact place we were and tasting the delicious foods- reading all the menus and different offerings brought back flashbacks of last time and of the foods I love so much.
We even tried Supalates and panzultes, typical food of the yucatan.
Here are some pictures of some of the amazing food we’ve been sampling already:
