Lesley Tellez, right, pauses by a sidewalk taco stand in Mexico City with Connie Walker of Minneapolis during one of Tellez’s Eat Mexico tours.
Today’s post ties in with my Friday column about Mexico City food blogger and tour guide Lesley Tellez, a former Rancho Cucamonga resident. (There’s a local angle no matter where you go.)
OK, I”m all linked out. Let’s go to the photos.
The first photo of my entire trip, this is a woman at a tianguis who makes tlacoyos as you watch.
A stop on Tellez’s street-food tour, this is a woman on a streetcorner who makes atole (a warm, corn-based beverage, perfect for breakfast) and tamales. We had the chicken.
From a second stand we got a strawberry tamale. “You won’t find pink tamales in the States,” Tellez said.
Burritos aren’t a common Mexico City item, but here’s a stand that specializes in them. The cook puts on a show for customers in line. Ours had squash blossoms, onions and tomatoes.
