What to Eat in Puebla: The Best from the Region

The best food I had in Puebla, Mexico.

Cemitas.

At the restaurant Sabor a Puebla (Taste of Puebla) we tried Cemitas, a torta (sandwich) of the gods, a regional treat from the city. The buns are eggy and unique, a type of brioche. Cemitas, a torta of the gods, a regional treat of Puebla in Mexico

Chulupas.

We made these in my Mexican cooking class only we called them Chalupitas meaning ‘little Chalupas.Chalupas on the menu of the restaurant 'Sabor de Puebla' in Puebla, Mexico

Flores Rellenos aka Stuffed Flowers.

I wrote about my Mexican cooking class 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!

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.
