The best food I had in Puebla, Mexico.
Flores Rellenas aka Stuffed Squash Flowers.
When I took my Mexican cooking class I wrote that it was ‘a quick way to experience Mexico without the hassle of flying…’ Well, here I was in Puebla and I had one taste of this Salsa Martajada and I was instantly transported back to my Mexican cooking class in Vancouver! The ‘flores’ are squash flowers stuffed with cheese.
Moles aka Sauces.
A nutty Mole de Pipian (made with pumpkin seeds), served up with Spanish rice and beans at El Mural de los Poblanos.
The three great sauces of Poblano cooking: dark chocolatey mole, pumpkin seed pipian, and red adobo, here combined into one meal, also at El Mural de los Poblanos.
Chapulines aka Grasshoppers.
Dulces aka Sweets.

- I tend to do research by stuffing food in my face but these guys have taken a more serious approach, and I used this article a fair bit as I wandered about Puebla: https://www.seriouseats.com/2014/07/regional-mexican-cuisine-what-is-pueblan-food.html
