Pulquería El Templo de Diana

Pulquería in Mexico City

This classic pulquería, a block east of the main market, Mercado de Xochimilco, has a cheerful sawdust-on-the-floor vibe, with a mixed-age crowd enjoying giant mugs of the maguey-based beverage. Even a few females may pop in. Delivered daily from Hidalgo state, the pulque is expertly blended with flavorings such as Nescafé, pistache (pistachio) and piñon (pine nut).
