Traveling to Mexico City? The food culture is certainly impressive and while you’ll have lots to try, make sure you check these five foods off your list.


Most travelers are pretty familiar with elote, the popular street food. Make sure you give it a try while you’re in the city. The piping hot ears of corn are covered in a mixture of salt, chili powder, butter, crumbly cheese and mayonnaise for a delicious result.


Chilaquiles can come in a variety of form and fashion, but the main thing to know is this — they’re basically the more “authentic” version of nachos. Chilaquiles are fried tortilla chips covered in sauce with toppings piled high that sometimes include a protein, cheese and other items.


Call them flautas or taquitos — whatever you call them, they’re delicious. Tortillas are stuffed with a choice of meat, then fried, and covered with a sauce or salsas. They’re often served with guacamole and sour cream.


Like chilaquiles, mole varies according to where and what you’re ordering, but the most popular mole is made from chilis and chocolate (look for mole poblano on the menu). Often, mole is served atop a tortilla-wrapped protein or cheese.


Tacos al pastor
You can’t visit Mexico City without enjoying some tacos, and the most popular form in the city is tacos al pastor. Marinated pork is sliced thin and then topped with pineapple and other traditional toppings, such as salsa and cilantro.
