The food of El Oro is known as an authentic mountain flavor that can be enjoyed in its small restaurants where good service and a friendly welcome are always in the order of the day.


Ask any locals about “the toads”, and they will guide you to the best place where this is prepared; it is an exquisite dish with a very thick tortilla base, similar to sopes, but cooked in lard and covered with stew, whose main ingredients are chili and vegetables. 

A LITTLE TASTE OF VENORIO CHILI
Ask for a delicious venorio, a very spicy kind of mole is prepared with red chili veins and seeds; it is paired with nopalitos and pork chopped into small pieces.

TASTE A NEW BEVERAGE
Ask for sweet grain rice, a cornflower beverage made of wheat grain whose soft grains burst in your mouth at the first taste. It is an experience you will surely want to repeat. Accompany it with a marranito, sweet bread made with unrefined brown sugar that is available at affordable prices and that is deliciously flavored.
