Puebla

Two days in the gritty Puebla I wander the streets in search of the food it is famous for. Chilies en Nogada lives up to its reputation as a sensory delight. A large green chili stuffed with chicken and dried fruit, covered with a creamy walnut sauce and sprinkled with pomegranate seeds. I am lucky to have arrived at this time of the year when it is in season.

The mole from this region was also something to be had; a tasting plate in a local restaurant leaves my taste buds dancing with flavors. IMG_2279

The Cuetlas, (caterpillars)

and the chapulines (grasshoppers)

Both crunchy and slightly chewy, possibly did not arrive in my table with their best colors, and left a little to be desired.

A few tacos Arabica later, and I am on my way to Veracruz.
