Gastronomic Traditions: MUNCHIES Guide to Mexico (Part 4)

A conurbated area is a space where two or more urban areas converge to become one. There is probably no more complex, chaotic and entangled conurbated area in the world such as that of Mexico City and the municipalities of the State of Mexico. In this episode, we enter some of the most distant metropolitan spaces in the center of Mexico City to discover what years of border conglomeration has brought to the country's gastronomic scene. We will discover the large amaranth fields between Chalco and Tláhuac, we will taste the extraordinary huge appetizers of Ciudad Neza and discover how the new Mexico City National Airport can finish with some of the oldest gastronomic traditions of Texcoco.

Exploring Mexico's La Marquesa National Park: MUNCHIES Guide to Mexico (Part 1)

La Marquesa is the ideal natural attraction place for outdoor activities: horseback riding, go-carting, fishing and, of course, eating. We visited La Marquesa In the middle of the mountain range that divides Mexico City from Toluca. There, our host, Jorge Garcia, tried the traditional corn atole inside Pati's Cabin; learned to fish in the sports club Tepehuisco, and ate a rich and fresh toluqueña trout. For dinner, we savored the delicious food of La Escondida, also known as the strangest place we have met in a long time.

Teotihuacán, the City of Gods, is one of the most important tourist attractions in Mexico, as it retains its enormous pyramids and much of its pre-Hispanic traditions, including food.

This ancestral place is home of pulque, a mythical drink that comes from agave. We went with a master pulquero to know the process of preparation of pulque and barbacoa. We also went with Oscar Chapa, chef of the restaurant Gran Teocalli and cooked some esquites with escamoles and chinicuiles "a la barbacoa".

To continue the tour, we tried the pre-Hispanic mixiote in El Portón, in the municipality of San Martin de las Pirámides, and as an obligatory experience we went to a temazcal in the Hotel Casa de Barro.
