Paste (stuffed dough patties) Museum

Mineral del Monte / Real del Monte

You cannot leave Real del Monte without eating a traditional “paste” (stuffed dough patties), a delicious delicacy of British heritage that was adopted by the miners in the area.

Made with wheat flour, vegetable shortening, butter and water, the traditional ones are filled with potato and grounded beef, but today there is a variety of sweet and salty flavors that include red and green mole, sausages, beans, apple and rice pudding, just to name a few.

To know in depth the history and the method of making this typical Hidalgo pastry, we recommend visiting the Museo del Paste. The Historical Room will bring you closer to discovering the British legacy of this dish, as well as the history of the region.

At the end of your tour you can have a unique experience: make your own “paste”. Guided by experts, you will have the opportunity to knead, fill and bake this traditional dish.
