The best food I had in Puebla, Mexico.
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.
We made these in my Mexican cooking class only we called them Chalupitas.
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.
Believe me, they look better than they taste.
Dulces aka Sweets.
The dulces (sweets) from Puebla are famous!

- 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

Wow. These look wonderful! They’re making me hungry.
Even the chapulines??
Well, on second viewing, I’d say yes, they look good, but maybe I’d have to pass on actually eating them!
