Visit traditional markets and mole mills, and taste a variety of Pueblan dishes at the city's small local restaurants. You'll marvel at the colors and the aromas, and visit the most important sites in the city’s historical center on this culinary tour.
What to Expect
Puebla is one of the 3 states in Mexico with the country’s richest gastronomic traditions. Due to its geographical location, Puebla became an obligatory point of rest in Colonial times for travelers making their way from the Gulf of Mexico to Mexico City, as well as those travelling from the Pacific Ocean to the capital.
Many convents were established in the Puebla, where the nuns created the dishes that were to become the most famous in Mexico: mole poblano and chiles en nogada.
This 5-hour tour will take you to the markets where the ingredients are bought and the restaurants where they are transformed. Visit traditional markets, mole mills and small traditional restaurants where you’ll taste a variety of local specialties, including tamales, tamal tortas, cemitas, chalupas, molotes, pelonas, memelas, quesadillas, and mole and pipian. Finish off with traditional sweets such as camotes and tortitas de Santa Clara.
Some traditional recipes will be shared with you so you can try them when you’re back at home.
Not everything on this tour is food-related, however. You’ll learn about the history of Puebla, listed by UNESCO as a Human Heritage City. Visit the Cathedral, with the tallest towers of any church on the American continent, and see the zocalo, or main plaza, and the city hall.
