On this episode, we are in Tepoztlán, a picturesque town south of Mexico City. We visit the marketplace, sample the ancient foods, and see the sights.

Back in Tijuana, host Jorge Meraz visits an ice cream shop called Tepoznieves. It just so happens that this special ice cream comes all the way from Tepoztlán where we just visited.

Lastly, we visit El Potrero, a restaurant with traditional food of Mexico. But wait until the dessert comes out, it’s on fire!
