  PUEBLA Food, Drink & Entertainment

Pueblan Cuisine, ancestral and baroque like the town itself, provides the traveler with yet another compelling reason to visit the region. Born from the union of Mesoamerican and Mediterranean tastes, it is an exotic mixture of flavors, aromas and colors rarely found in other places. The Mole (derived from the Nahuatl "Molli," meaning mixture) is a prime example. Mole is a rich sauce (frequently served over chicken) that often contains more than 32 ingredients, including several varieties of chiles, seeds, spices and chocolate. Families traditionally make their most celebrated Mole in November on the Day of the Dead, in honor of their ancestors. The dish is lovingly prepared according to treasured family recipes and then placed on the family altar in expectation of a visit from the souls of the departed. Mole is also a staple of the pueblan diet throughout the year, and is a common entree in pueblan restaurants and homes.
