Is it possible to be vegan in Mexico?

Is it possible to be vegan in Mexico?

Hands up, I am not a vegan myself, but for one reason or another, recently I got to thinking about how possible it would be to live with a vegan diet in Mexico. Of course, it’s not impossible to do so anywhere that you go, but it is certainly easier in some places than others....
Oaxaca Street Food: Part 4 - Tlayudas and Memelas

Oaxaca Street Food: Part 4 – Tlayudas and Memelas

Tlayudas are the quintessential Oaxacan street food, and a trip to Oaxaca would not be complete without tucking into one (or five, or ten). Memelas can be considered the younger siblings of tlayudas and are delicious too. So what is a tlyauda? A tlayuda is a massive thin corn tortilla with stuff on the top...
Oaxaca Street Food: Part 3 - Tamales!

Oaxaca Street Food: Part 3 – Tamales!

Part 3 of my Oaxaca street food series covers my absolute favourite Oaxacan food – tamales! You can get tamales all over Mexico, but Oaxaca is particular well known for them and the rest of Mexico can’t just compare. If you want the real thing, you have to head to Oaxaca. In fact, when I...
Oaxaca street foods: Part 2 - Mercado 20 de Noviembre

Oaxaca street foods: Part 2 – Mercado 20 de Noviembre

There are endless reasons to visit Oaxaca in Mexico – the incredible churches, the friendly people, the connection to indigenous cultures, and the list goes on. But right up there has to be Oaxaca’s food culture. Whenever you tell a Mexican that you are travelling to Oaxaca, they will regale you with food stories of...
Oaxaca street foods: Part 1 - Nieves la Soledad

Oaxaca street foods: Part 1 – Nieves la Soledad

If you don’t know too much about glorious Oaxaca in central-south Mexico, you might not be aware that this place is a bonafide gastronomic paradise. Like, f’realz, people travel half way around the world just to eat here and with good reason. In fact, I did just that on my first ever trip to Oaxaca...
The yummy stuff I ate in New York

The yummy stuff I ate in New York

Over Easter, I visited my family in New York (who live there in spite of their Britishness) and what defined this trip was the FOOD. I have visited New York on numerous occasions, but somehow I had forgotten what an incredible food culture this city has. I had actually been a little worried about leaving...
Mexico City street food - get inside me!

Mexico City street food – get inside me!

There are many incredible things to do in Mexico City, but devouring all of the incredible street food has to be top of the list. All the time I’ve been here, I have, of course, been opening my mouth and shoveling in food like the practice of eating is going out of fashion, and trying...
A Mexico City guide for the sweet toothed

A Mexico City guide for the sweet toothed

No doubt about it – Mexico City is a foodie paradise. But it’s not all tacos, gringas, and tamales. Mexicans also love their sugar, and can often be found shoving sweets, ice cream, popcorn, cakes, churros, and pastries into their mouths. I don’t even have much of a sweet tooth, but here in Mexico City...
The cost of food shopping in Mexico City

The cost of food shopping in Mexico City

When I was on my backpacking trip last year, I ate out for pretty much every meal. When you stay in a guesthouse or hotel, there is usually not too much opportunity for cooking, and in southeast Asia it was cheaper to eat food from the street anyway. Now that I am living in Mexico,...
My 3 favourite destinations for eating on the cheap

My 3 favourite destinations for eating on the cheap

Throughout my trip, there were times when even I was astounded by how little I was spending despite doing the whole backpacker thing for months and months.  When I am away from home on a backpacking adventure, I rarely cook. It just doesn’t make sense because the food is generally amazing when you are on...
Confessions of a roti canai addict

Confessions of a roti canai addict

I’m one of those obsessive types. When I like a song, I will make that song my alarm clock, I will wake up to that song every day, and I will listen to no other song for weeks. When I fall in love with a book, I will read it and re-read it, underlining and...
The vegetarian's guide to Penang

The vegetarian’s guide to Penang

When you tell somebody that you are visiting Penang, the usual response is “Oh, there’s amazing food there.” There probably is but the vast majority of it contains meat or fish and I ain’t putting that in my mouth for anybody.  So what’s a vegetarian to do in Penang? I won’t lie, you probably won’t...
