Cuisine and Nightlife
The cuisine of Mexico's North is born from the hacienda
tradition, and leans towards hearty meat dishes. In Monterrey, you'll find some of the
best Carne Asada, Cabrito, Menudo, and Machacado (dry beef) the country has to offer. Also
excellent are the turcos (meat empanadas) and tamales. For desert,
try the dulce de leche con nuez - condensed milk with nuts. The ultimate breakfast here is
Machacado con Huevos.
Monterrey's nightlife centers around bars and cantinas where you can listen to live jazz,
rock, mariachis, and other varieties of music. There are usually cultural shows playing at
one of the city's night clubs or theaters. There are also plenty of modern discos.
