Estampas de Mi Ciudad – Chocolate de Agua y Pan de Yema
Food is ubiquitous and readily available throughout Mexico, in settings both formal and informal. El Mercado 20 de noviembre, where this picture was taken, opened its doors in 1882 in the southestern city of Oaxaca, Mexico and is still in operation today. This delicious chocolate de agua is a concoction made with ground cocoa beans and sugar. Pan dulce (translated as “sweet bread” but closer to pastries) is a staple of any Mexican breakfast meal.
