Cuisine & Nightlife
In Mexico City, you'll be able to find the full range of
national cuisine. Because it is the capital, cooking from every region is available
here. Keep in mind that Mexican food tends to be quite spicy and seasoned, and
often uses any several of the countless varieties of indigenous peppers. The word for
spicy in Mexico is picante -people often mistakenly use "caliente," which means
hot to the touch . Most meals are accompanied by tacos and tortillas (Mexican
tacos are not the same as Tex- Mex kind popularized in the United States). Below are a few
samples of regional dishes.
