Description

Learn about Mexico’s rich culinary traditions from an experienced guide who shows you the best of Mexico City’s cuisine. You’ll stop in a variety of taquerias and restaurants to taste pozoles, tacos, indigenous dishes and regional specialties. A tantalizing array of delicious eats awaits you in both modest taquerias and fine restaurants. This small-group tour ensures that you'll receive personalized attention as you taste the cuisine of this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Meet your guide in the late morning at Hostal Amigo, a downtown Mexico City spot where you kick off the food festivities with a delicious pozole tasting. Once all the members of your small group arrive, follow your guide through the bustling streets for delicious tacos and quesadillas. Vegetarians can order quesadillas prepared with squash blossom and huitlacoche (a smoky-flavored delicacy often called corn smut); meanwhile meat eaters can select beef or pork tacos made from a huge variety of juicy cuts and seasonings. Try the famous al pastor tacos found at the highly recommended Taqueria El Huequito before biting into tacos made with cochinita pibil, a slow-roasted pork recipe that dates back to the ancient Maya on the Yucatan peninsula.

Make a quick stop at San Juan Market to taste some pre-Hispanic dishes made with exotic (and nutritious!) ingredients such as grasshoppers and other insects. These foods were important in the diet of ancient Mexico and are now delicacies served in the finest restaurants. Sample some of these unusual treats, or enjoy items made with quintessential ingredients such as corn, squash, chili, tomatoes, beans, avocado and chocolate.

Finish the tour at El Moro to enjoy some delicious chocolate and buñuelos. At the end of the 4-hour tour you can stay at the restaurant and soak up the festive atmosphere or your guide can walk you back to the starting point.
