I like food

I like Mexican food because it is diversity, creative, and delicious food. In Mexico, there are many regions and each one has a different expression, and cultures. Food is one. In North country  the meals are specially  good, for example the sirloin, and arrachera. Mexico is between two oceans, and for that reason It has many products of sea.  You can dine very well in La Paz  Baja California a delicious lobster. In the south the seafood is wonderful, and each province has traditional food.  In Veracruz you can eat “fish to veracruzana” .  In Campeche you must taste the big  shrimps.  In Yucatan the people cook  “mestiza food” such as: Soup of lime, Cochinita pibil, Papapzules.
