BEST MEXICAN STREET FOOD in Oaxaca, MEXICO | Eating in Tlacolula Market, Oaxaca, Mexico

Sponsored Post advertising Canada Persia
Oaxaca is one of Mexico's culinary hotspots. The state's geography and indigenous cultures all play a part in its phenomenal food culture. In this Oaxaca food tour we're travelling about 40 minutes outside of Oaxaca city to the town of Tlacolula, which holds a traditional market day every Sunday. People flood in from neighbouring villages and towns to trade, shop, eat and catch up with their neighbours. We eat our way around Tlacolula market including a rare Oaxacan street food including tejate- a pre-Hispanic drink of the Mixtec and Zapotec people. Also on the menu- barbacoa de chivo (goat barbacoa) and we grill up our own massive Mexican street food feast alongside the locals in the meat hall-  what an experience! We hope you enjoy this Oaxaca food tour!#mexicanfood #oaxaca #oaxacafood

What we ate and where we ate it:

1. Tejate
2. Barbacoa de chivo (tacos and consomme)
3. Tasajo (cured beef), avocados, salsa roja, cebollitas (small onions) and tortillas 

All eaten at Tlacolula Market held every Sunday. We caught a bus to Tlacolula for $20MXN each (one way) from outside of the baseball stadium in Oaxaca City. Buses back to Oaxaca City leave from the bus station in Tlacolula throughout the day. The price is the same upon return to Oaxaca City.

We’re Thomas and Sheena, food and travel fiends. We travel full time, hunting for the BEST local food in the world to showcase via our YouTube videos. Food is a window into a country's culture and one of the most exciting ways to get to know a place.

We're all about eating what and where the locals eat. You won't find food that's been created merely to be social media worthy on here- no rainbow bagels, gold leaf soft serves- just genuine, authentic food that tastes incredible.

From street food to mom and pop restaurants, we want to show you the best and most authentic food we find on our travels.
