    Food tourism?

    I was recently reading about Ensenada and its wine country and fusion cuisine, and I got to wondering what other areas are of interest for foodies and wine lovers. I know there are some great historical tequila producing towns, but little beyond that.

    What regions have good distinctive cuisines? I don't just mean good basic food or a nice variety, but like you would recommend someone visit Napa for wine in California, or go to New Orleans for Cajun food?

    Portland Oregon has an amazing culinary community. I did not get to try much of it out while I was there for two days but it is somewhere I'd like to visit again so I can check out the amazing looking places I passed. I have a friend who is currently in the process of opening a restaurant there and he texts me pictures of food from around town all the time, it makes me insanely jealous!

    Well, the north of mexico is great if you enjoy eating ribs, tex mex, burritos, cabrito, barbacoa, etc. They're also known for making their own fruit liquors; they're excellent and highly recommended! If you want to drink the best tequila or mezcal there is, then you must go to Guadalajara. You can even go on a tour to take a look at the ''agaves fields''. They also have a very nice cusine there... a little closer to the original mexican food and not influenced by the american cusine like the one in the north.

    I have tried pulque, but didn't know there were other national liquors down there.

    In the north of Mexico a distinctive cuisine is called "Cocina Regiomontana" which is the one that your find in Nuevo León state, particularly in the city of Monterrey, which more typical dish is "Cabrito" as roasted goat dish.

    In the Gulf of Mexico there are three regional cuisines "Veracruzana" (from Veracruz), Chiapaneca (from Chiapas) and Yucateca (from Yucatán) while in the Pacific Ocean the cuisines of Oaxaca and Guerrero are also worth to taste.

    Two other distinctive cuisines in Mexico are those from the states of Puebla and Jalisco. Tequila is a town in Jalisco that is near to Guadalajara and where Tequila and other agave drinks are produced.

    Thanks, that's what I was looking for. I've heard of cabrito, but I don't think I've ever had it. I'm looking up these types of recipes and only recognize like a quarter of the ingredients! Awesome

    Yeah, actually there are far more drinks that just tequila, pulque and mezcal. The place where I'm living right now is known for a drink that is made of corn, it's named ''tesquino''. There is also a really popular drink known as ''tepache'', it's made with the pineapple skins... it takes a few days to ferment. I once got a bit drunk after drinking a really concentrated tepache drink. Way better than drinking the stronger alcoholic drinks.

    I really love tepache, it's really tasty and when it's not concentrated this drink is even very refreshing, particularly on the rocks.

    Other traditional Mexicans drinks include a beverage called "mosco" which is Toluca's typical sweet liquor with a 80-year tradition to date.

    You are welcome

    This is the most accurate recipe to cook cabrito as in Monterrey, Cabrito al pastor

    The above recipe is in Spanish but you can use Google translate to put it into English and compare it with this other, that is the closest match for an English Cabrito recipe, Recipe : Cabrito Al Pastor (Broiled Kid)

    Fooding during the tour is obviously a need and people get to experience it big time 2 day tour new york to niagara falls provides the maximum facilities which is more like a treat to us.
