Mexico

Trip 2016

It’s hard to explore a country so full of culinary variety, wild stories and different regions in only a few weeks – so after having finished our first book, we decided to come back and dedicate a whole second book to the land of Aztecs and Mayas. In beginning of 2016, we started to travel through the whole country, starting on the Yucatan peninsula in the southeast of Mexico, discovering the fresh and modern seafood specialties of the Tulum area. 

From there we make our way to Merida, where we found a bunch of original Mayan recipes like cochinita al pibil with it´s typical earthy, spicy, sour flavor. Arriving in Mexico City, we dedicated our time there to finding the best hidden streetfood-treasures and neighborhood eateries one can imagine. After all the feasts of d.f., we decided to head down to Oaxaca, birthground of MEZCAL, our favorite discovery oft he whole trip.

But we didn`t only get hammered on all the great family produced artesanal Mezcals, we also learned a lot from local chefs like José Luis Díaz, who took us to his birthtown and introduced us to the art of enjoying sundays like a true Mexican:

like a true Mexican

We opened the first beers around eleven a.m. while relaxing in a little creek, then slaughtered a pig for the afternoon barbecue and finally had a huge dinner in the lime goves of the little family owned farm. From the idyll scene of Oaxaca, we were drawn back to the urban city life: Guadalajara was calling. During the days we were wanderig through the markets to find the spiciest chilies, at night we sneaked through the trainyards to paint some steel-trains with our local Graffiti buddies – we just cant deny ourselves a little bit of thug life. After that episode it was time to get to the sea, surf is calling! 

San Pancho, one of our absolute favorite spots in Mexico, was the choice. Little boattrips to empty hidden breaks, freshest seafood and a lot of fiesta with old friends, San Pancho has it all. The biggest part of our whole roadtrip took us from the south end of Baja California all the way up to the northern bordertown Tijuana. On the way up there, we had strange nightly encounters with coyotes, witnessed a typical Taco Tuesday in an old rocker-bar and swam within an armlength of 8m long whalesharks. Mexico – there really is nothing else like you. 

What a trip!
