Day 3.

After a good sleep in and another run around Alameda Centra Park, I caught the elevator with a couple of Policia, ready for another day in Mexico City.


Today's plan was a food tour through Café Emir. The headline on the local newspaper was about how the White House had blocked several news organizations from a press briefing..


Just before 11am I then met up for the start of the food tour at Restaurante Oaxaca en Mexico. Carina, our guide, today, was born and bred in Chicago but had moved to Mexico City about 10 years ago and had now become a naturalised citizen.


Restaurante Oaxaca en Mexico specialised in food from Mexican State of Oaxaca (pronounced Wa-ha-ka).

Our first tasting of the day was an enmolada filled with shredded chicken and covered with mole sauce and served with rice. One of the (many) ingredients of the mole was chocolate and mae for a very interesting flavour along with the chilis, garlic and other ingredients.


We then went for a walk down the street and stopped near Mercado de San Juan and went through some of the history of the area with us.


And inside the market, which specializes in gourmet and exotic foods, including fresh meat from iguanas, skunks and even farmed lions!


Pescador.


And our second tasting of the day, Queso de puerco made with tongue with Oaxacan cheese and a some Spanish red wine.
