Puebla
Puebla's contributions to Mexico's culinary canon are at least as important as its contributions to the country's political and social history. Birthplace of the famed Mole Poblano, cemitas sandwiches, and sweet-potato candies, Puebla is a delicious destination for travelers who consider food a central part of a meaningful and memorable cultural experience. The city also has unique artisanal liqueurs, such as the sweet, raisin-based drink, la pasita, and exotic delicacies that are only available seasonally, including escamoles (ant eggs) and gusanos de maguey (maguey worms).
