Explore the diversity of Mexican food at Mexic-Arte’s Taste of Mexico on May 2

Texans know the difference between Tex-Mex and Mexican food, but do you know the difference between Oaxacan and Yucatecan food?

Mexican food is as varied as American food, and you can explore some of that diversity at Mexic-Arte Museum‘s annual Taste of Mexico event on May 2. From 6 to 9 p.m. at Brazos Hall, 204 E. Fourth Street, you’ll find food from more than 40 Austin restaurants, food trucks and beverage purveyors. Organizers have asked participants to showcase indigenous ingredients and techniques found throughout Mexican cuisine.
