I did not stay at the Meson Sacristia but took a cooking class there that was well worth the time and expense ($85 USD). I had expected to be in the class with other folks, but it turned out to be a private lesson. This was a fabulous treat and since I am a retired Spanish teacher, the class was conducted all in Spanish! Lizbet was an amazing instructor and I did it all...roasted the chili peppers for the salsa, made the mole poblano, prepared the red and green salsas, made the chalupas and best of all, was able to savor all the delicious food products when we were done! I came away with a booklet of all the recipes and an increased appreciation for fine Mexican cooking. I now make my guacamole "a la mexicana" thanks to a recipe from Lizbet.
On the other hand, my husband and I went to the Meson to dine one evening and had the worst meal we have ever had in Mexico...sorry to say. The pork with the mole sauce was hard and dry and truly inedible. The enchiladas had NOTHING inside of them since we opted to not have the chicken...a little cheese or beans would have been nice. We found so many amazing restaurants in Puebla and were surprised that this particular one was written up with such praise in our guide book. Perhaps it was an off night for the kitchen..it certainly was an off night for us!
