Huaraches are totally different from memelas. Ask any local in Tehuacán, and that’s what they’ll say if you confuse the two.
Food is similar to that of the neighboring metropolis: cemitas, molotes, pelonas, y pozoles. But if we’re being honest, we’re really here to drink.
When I ask my students what I should do in Tehuacán, everyone says the same. “Go to Puebla and eat a cemita.”
