Traditional Cuisine GuanajuatoGuanajuato cuisine has been influenced by other cities located throughout the state, as well as neighboring destinations like Queretaro, San Luis Potosi, Michoacan and Jalisco. Traditionally accompanied by fried potatoes and carrots, enchiladas mineras is the most famous local dish, served in restaurants throughout the city. Just by walking down the street, you’ll find vendors selling pickled pig skin and pigs feet served with a deep fried tortilla. Another tempting option is the “guacamaya”, a roll stuffed with pork rinds and pico de gallo salsa.

As you walk through the streets of Guanajuato, you’ll see both permanent and mobile food stands that sell traditional state desserts. The sweet cajeta de Celaya (caramelized milk) and charamuscas (candy made of milk, nuts and coconut) should not be missed, nor should the strawberries of Irapuato, served naturally, crystallized, covered in chocolate or in jam. Quince cheese and guava rolls are other delicacies you can enjoy during your visit.

Guanajuato TamalesOther customary dishes include beef empanadas, tamales filled with pork or cheese and Guanajuato pacholas made from ground meat and spices. San Miguel de Allende style fiambre (cold cut platters) and sugared beet juice are also popular with locals.
