Restaurants in San Cristobal de las Casas ChiapasRestaurants in San Cristobal de las Casas Chiapas

A travel through Chiapas' gastronomy shows us a cultural geography full of surprises and intense flavors, as intense as its people. Most establishments invite to taste the traditional dishes, due to the encounter of two cultures: Indian and Spanish. Among the regional fare you can enjoy are tamales with chipilin leaves, chalupas, chiles stuffed with pork or vegetables and the delicious asado chiapaneco (a roasted pork dish). You can also enjoy pork, beef and vegetable stews, bread soup, beef tongue in saffron and Soconusco-style chanfaina (lamb organs served with rice). To accompany your meal, order a refreshing glass of punch or a tascalate; a fermented corn beverage drink. Remember that San Cristobal is a very attractive city for visitors all over the world, so international cuisine can be found: Italian, French, from Thailand, Hindu, Chinese and the classic vegetarian.
