Hhhhmm....fancy restaurants are everywhere, so perhaps you would like to have some typical food of Queretaro. Then, you have to go the markets, 'Escobedo' and 'La Cruz', and some old restaurants that you can find in downtown.
These restaurants have all the flavors from Queretaro, you will find the food can be a little spicy, so be prepared for that.
Favorite Dish: I would definitely go for the 'gorditas'. They are like a tortilla, only thicker, and they are stuffed with delicious mexican dishes, or simply cheese and salsa. If you go to one of the little towns outside and near Queretaro, like Tequisquiapan or Bernal, ask for the 'gorditas de maíz quebrado' (smashed corn gorditas). They are hand-made, and the corn is smashed the old way, without machines, so they a have a unique texture, and they are just GREAT!!
Please, don't go to a fancy...
Please, don't go to a fancy restaurant, if you want to taste the Mexican flavour, try going to the 'mercado', or eating at small restaurants, called 'fonda' or 'comida corrida', they usually have the very mexican stuff!!
Favorite Dish: these are some of the most Queretaro's traditional foods: gorditas de migajas (looks like a tortilla, but filled with diferent things), tamales (you know those, ask for a 'tamal con rajas', they are delicious!! but a little spicy), buñuelos(looks like a big tortilla too, but they have some kind of sugar water) atole (a drink made with 'maiz' the main food in mexico, this one is due to drink with the 'buñuelo'), all these foods are very ancient, Aztecs used to eat them everyday!!!
