“The most democratic of Mexican foods”, the taco is the best known and the most popular of Mexican street foods, and the first to be embraced north of the border into the United States.
“Mexican street food, called antojitos (literally “little cravings”), is prepared by street vendors and at small traditional markets in Mexico. Street foods include tacos, tamales, gorditas, quesadillas, empalmes, tostadas, chalupa, elote, tlayudas, cemita, pambazo, empanada, nachos, chilaquiles, fajita and tortas, as well as fresh fruit, vegetables, beverages and soups such as menudo, pozole and pancita. Most are available in the morning and the evening, as mid-afternoon is the time for the main formal meal of the day.” — Wikipedia
Tourists in Mexico tend to shy away from street food over health and sanitation concerns. As a result, they miss out on much of the best of Mexican cuisine.
Mexican food was named by UNESCO as an intangible cultural heritage of mankind, and Forbes named Mexico City one of the top ten cities for street food in the world.
