Last month, six lucky winners and their partners from around the globe were invited to join us in Mexico City for a week of sight-seeing, devouring delicious bites and living it up on the red carpet with chef royalty at Latin America's 50 Best Restaurants.
The #50BestPass winners from Australia, Brazil, Chile, France, Mexico and the USA caught all their best moments in a series of Instagram posts that made their followers green with envy. Now you can live vicariously through their beautiful (and mouthwatering) photos – we've pulled together our top pics, but you can follow them on Instagram for more.
1. Oscar and Camila: it's churro time
2. Laura Peach: Bienvenue à Mexico
3. Oaxacking: chile en nogada at the Chefs' Feast
4. Chef Chad White: strawberries on strawberries on strawberries at Biko
5. Camila Masullo: deep in thought at the pyramids
6. Aaron 'Zeboy': getting to grips with grubs (or red maguey caterpillars)
Now this might freak you out but it doesn't really taste bad. Kinda bland if you ask me. Texture is like a less-crunchy chicken skin. Chinicuiles (red maguey caterpillars aka chilli caterpillars) inhabits the base or core of the maguey plant leaves. I added them into my tacos just as a textural component. #mexicocity #teotihuacan @theworlds50best
7. Laura Peach: lunch in the caves
8. Ms I-Hua: spiral staircase at the MAP Museum
9. Oscar: dinner at Sud777
