Leon Cuisine | What to Eat in Leon
Meals in Leon are typically based around meat, including the famous pork carnitas, birria (a spicy stew), menudo (tripe soup) and the traditional guacamayas (tortas with hard pork rinds and hot sauce). You’ll also want to try delicious snacks like caldos de oso (pieces of jicama and fresh cheese mixed with a spicy lemon and vinegar blend). Chalupas (cucumber slices with onions, cheese and vinegar) are a popular choice after a night out in the city.
The cuisine in the city of Leon has been strongly influenced by Michoacan as well as other cities in the state of Guanajuato. Strawberries can be enjoyed in a variety of forms (crystallized, served with cream, or dipped in chocolate) and are a common dessert in restaurants and households. You may also wish to try candies made from cajeta (caramelized goat's milk) and of course the delicious cebadina, a drink made with barley, fruit and baking soda.
