    Traditional Mexican cuisine

    A very interesting documentary talking about the traditional mexican cusine, its roots and much more. Extremely nice, and a must watch if you're interested in the mexican country and culture in general.

    Thank you for sharing. I realize there is a strong culture and that has affected the cuisine. Anyone planning a trip should view this.

    You're welcome! This video actually talks about the different influences in mexican cusine, there are two main ones: the indigenous one (prehispanic) and the hispanic one (spaniard one). Actually the prehispanic one is gaining a lot popularity in some places of mexico, this kind of food consists of bugs! That's right! The other day my mom tried a seasoned dry cricket. We went to a fair where they were offering them. I'm so ashamed to admit I didn't dare to try at least one.

    While there are countless tasty dishes in the Mexican cuisine, those rooted in Mexico's prehispanic tradition are not really appealing because are mostly the ones that include crickets, ants, or a sort of... worn? called "alcociles"

    I would certainly not eat any of those dishes, but there are others really tasty as charales (small dry fish) tacos, but probably some of the best are those resulting from the fusion of the Mexican and Spanish cultures.

    You're right, the best dishes are a fusion of the indigenous mexican culture and the spanish culture, but to be honest most modern dishes are mostly inspired on the spanish cusine. Specially in the north of mexico... they don't eat bugs over there at all, but if you travel to the south, yeah they like to eat bugs. You can find a lot places selling this kind of things! In the north of mexico you just can't find that.

    For most of the parts that we get to explore its quite necessary to take care of things which are generally going to a very next level and cuisines are very important thing that we see during the time frame it does help us with in an arrangement that we have seen tours from new york to niagara falls would always be growing ahead in the possibilities of the factors that it brings out.
