We finally chose our menu! Yesterday we went to our coordinator’s office to taste some food. They have an extensive menu, and we were told to pick two of each to try.
In Mexico it is really rare to take into consideration dietary needs or preferences of the guests. We are a bit behind on that front. So there are not vegetarian, vegan, or gluten-free options. This can cause some trouble; for example, my dad is allergic to chicken and shrimp, so whenever he goes to a wedding or party he more likely will not eat everything he is served”¦but that’s OK. He is used to that, and it doesn’t bother him at all. What I mean with all this is that it’s not considered rude to have only one meal option. I wanted to mention it since I’ve noticed it’s a big cultural difference.
Anyway, here are the dishes we tried, and in bold letters are the ones that we chose.
