BASIC INFORMATION

Mexican cuisine is known for its varied flavors, colorful decoration, and variety of spices and ingredients.
Mexican food varies by region, because of local climate and geography and ethnic differences these different populations were influenced by the Spaniards in varying degrees.
The north of Mexico is known for its beef, goat and ostrich production and meat dishes, in particular the well-known Arrachera cut.
In the Yucatan, for instance, a unique, natural sweetness (instead of spiciness) exists in the widely used local produce along with an unusual love for achiote seasoning.
The Oaxacan region is known for its savory tamales and celebratory moles.
The staples of Mexican cuisine are typically corn and beans.

While Mexican restaurants can be found in almost any town throughout North America, and in many cities around the world, restaurants outside the American Southwest often feature nontraditional ingredients
So the flavor could never have the same without the specific ingredients!!!!
Central Mexico's cuisine is largely influenced by the rest of the country, but has unique dishes such as barbacoa, pozole, menudo and carnitas.
Seafood is commonly prepared in states that border the Pacific Ocean or the Gulf of Mexico, the latter having a famous reputation for its fish dishes, à la veracruzana.
So the flavor could never have the same without the specific ingredients!!!!
Places to visit

The fifth remains on top of the pole, dancing and playing a flute and drum. The ritual was created to ask the gods to end a severe drought.
Papel picado is a traditional folk art from Mexico that involves cutting out intricate patterns on colorful tissue paper.
Mexico's beautiful handicrafts and folk art are the result of skill and knowledge that have been passed down through generations.
Puebla is world-renowned for its Talavera pottery which comes in various forms, including plates, serving dishes, vases and tiles.
In Mexico, piñatas are believed to have originated among the Aztecs, who made clay pots in the shape of their gods. The contents spilled to signify abundance or favors from the gods.
