WHAT TO EAT IN CANDELA

Among the dishes that you must try on your visit to this town is the fritada de cabrito (the blood of the animal is collected when it is slaughtered and it becomes the basis for the sauce that the goat is braised in).

Other typical dishes are: goat cheese, pork with green chile and cheese with meat, which is a classic of the region.

One of Candela's typical stews is roast pork, so we recommend that you don't miss it.

If you like culinary eccentricities you can try the rattlesnake that is served in broths or fried as pork rinds.

In Candela sweets made from goat's milk are famous, so you cannot miss dulces de piloncillo (brown sugar candies), walnut candies, burnt milk candies and nogadas sweets.
