I had a great day at the Campeche market yesterday. I was invited as a guest by Alberto to his little restaurant just outside the market. The point of the trip was to try his “Chile Relleno” or stuffed chilli pepper.
Not only did I try it, but I got to see them actually make it. And I got a little tamale-making lesson to boot.
Check it out:
Here are directions to the restaurant:
STEP 1: Go to the Zocalo (main plaza) and take this street:
STEP 2: Walk 2-4 blocks until you hit the main road, cross the road at a pedestrian walkway.
STEP 3: Find the street that has this on the corner:
If you can’t find that, just look for this, the street you want is the only one that has this directly across from it:
STEP 4: Walk down the street, restaurant will be on your left, and it looks like this:
SHORT CUT: You can just keep asking for the intersections of Costa Rica and Chihauhau.
Hope you find it okay, any questions—please don’t hesitate to ask. I love talking about this stuff!
