The main highlights of Oaxaca are good food, art and unique culture. Let’s start with food.

Here is Tlayuda con quesillo y tasajo, which is a big corn tortilla with cheese, beef and bean sauce.

Hot corn dipped in mayonnaise, cheese and chilli is another street food. Really good and seems that can be easily prepared at home.

And here is the last one. It’s not Asia and those are Chapulines, roasted grashoppers. People say they are good but I wasn’t in a mood to try them.
