As you may have noticed, we’ve ended up being a bit consumed with Mexican cuisine, as well as have found that going on a culinary tour is one of the finest methods to discover about the food that’s from the region, as well as have a guided tour of the city as well.

During our stay in Guanajuato (which wasn’t almost long enough), we were fortunate sufficient to satisfy up with Tim Leffel. in addition to being a published author, a travel writer as well as a legend in the travel blogging industry, Tim likewise discovers time to run this food tour.

As it was morning time, very first up was some breakfast-type items. Tim led us into a prominent bakery, with the most fantastic smells wafting out of the back room. Upon investigation, we discovered three guy baking fresh breads, buns as well as pastries. We were able to select whatever we wished to sample, as well as with a plethora of delights on offer, it was difficult to pick.

We opted for the concha roll, which is a round, fluffy bun covered in a sugary topping. This was something we’d commonly seen eaten by Mexicans during our 2 months in the country, however had yet to try. Le verdict? They were tasty as well as we desire we had tried them sooner!

The smells coming out of this bakery were incredible!
To laundry the breakfast roll down, we stopped for some fresh juice from one of the regional vendors near the Embajadores Market. A prominent drink is called jugo verde, or, eco-friendly juice. With healthy (and delicious) ingredients like celery, cactus, orange juice as well as parsley, this aptly named juice was the option among the tour goers.

As we wandered from the bakery to the juice stand to a regional market, a significant smile crept across our faces. Guanajuato is a lovely city as well as we were so delighted we had decided to join this tour to get a great overview of the area as well as discover the very best street eats for our upcoming 6 day stay.

We shown up at the lovely Baratillo Plaza, which was surrounded by a wide array of colourful buildings. In the center of the square was a big fountain, as well as at the entrance to an alleyway leading up the hill, were our next meals: tamales and gorditas!

What is a tamale?

This Mexican favourite is made from cornmeal, which is sometimes stuffed with a seasoned meat or cheese, then wrapped in a corn husk as well as steamed up until cooked. There are different type of tamales, four of which we tried on the tour, as well as all of which were extremely flavourful.

This specific tamale was wrapped in swiss chard and stuffed with cheese! Miam

What is a gordita?

Another street food classic, a gordita is a corn flour pocket stuffed with your option of bbq’d, stewed or fried meat, as well as cheese. For the vegetarians out there, you can opt for beans, eggs, peppers or cactus instead. when filled, the pocket is lightly fried on a flat top grill. After sampling the bbq’d poultry as well as stewed pork gorditas on the tour, we came back 2 more times by ourselves! This was definitely the very best area in town.

Really enjoying our gorditas!
Guanajuato is a mountainous city, which provided much-needed exercise in between meals. We walked with little alleyways, down hectic streets as well as even took the funicular (cable-car tram) up the hillside for spectacular vistas over the city.
