  • "It was inspiring to be around all your knowledge and network of wonderful people that you got together to show us the magic of Michoacán! I can see why you love it so much. Not only is it physically beautiful but the spirit of the people is engaging and contagious. We left feeling so well received and in awe of the talent of Michoacanos, and we felt that we learned so much! ! Everyone at the school was impressed by the dulces [candies] and the artesanías [arts and crafts] we brought back. If it hadn't been for you, we never could have seen and done so much...You are incredible!"...Susana Trilling, Seasons of My Heart, Oaxaca.

Alex

are there pulquerias in guadalajara?

Cristina

Mike, Mexicans and foreigners alike have different comfort levels when deciding whether to eat or drink from Mexico's street stands or carts. What seems right to me may give you the collywobbles. What seems to me to be persnickety and unnecessary focus on the dangers of street food may seem to you to be just plain common sense.

I think the bottom line is that no food/drink vendor who wants to stay in business would intentionally offer fare that would make anyone sick. Beyond that, you can only use your own judgment when deciding what looks safe to you.

Just bear in mind that what looks safe may not be, and what looks unsafe may be perfectly fine.

Michael Warshauer

I loved fresh pulque, both curado with tunas, and natural, when I had it in Huitzílac, Morelos. However, sour pulque, as I sampled in Tlanepantla, EdoMex, was nasty.
I've made tepache, but it is too light and lacks punch. Maybe I need to use more pineapple flesh in it and not mostly peels.

I have serious hygienic doubts about drinking street vended beverages. What's your opinion on that?

Saludos,
Mike
