Eating Street Food In Mexico

When you first come to Mexico, you may worry about getting sick from eating the food, especially from street vendors. But times have changed, and unless you see an obviously unsanitary situation, most food is safe to eat. Your choices range from simple booths that offer just one or two items, such as burritos, to temporary sidewalk restaurants the specialize in meat and chicken plates. After dinner, take a stroll around the central plaza and you will find booths devoted to satisfying your sweet tooth. Now find a bench and let your meal digest as you people watch and enjoy a fine Mexican beer.
