A three-and-a-half hour glimpse at one of the most vibrant street food scenes in the world. Moving from stand to stand, we’ll try fresh-squeezed fruit juice, tacos al pastor, tamales and atole (a typical rice and masa drink that’s served during the mornings); tlacoyos, quesadillas and much more. Also you’ll learn about the history of each food, and discover a little more about how the street food system is organized in a typical neighborhood.
For anyone interested in Mexican food, a trip to a typical Mexico City market is a must. On this tour we’ll visit one of two city markets: the famous Mercado San Juan and the more working-class Arcos de Belém. We’ll visit the market’s fruit, vegetable, mole and dried chile stands, and meet some of the vendors. We’ll discuss some of the history of the flavors and ingredients, which reflect Mexico’s mix of Spanish and Meso-American influences. This tour also includes stops for street food in the nearby vicinity.
Mexico City is the only place in the country where you can find food from all over the republic. On this tour, you’ll try tacos typical to Yucatán, Guerrero, Puebla, Michoacán and Central Mexico. We’ll discuss the history and context of each taco we try, and we’ll also stop by a neighborhood market to learn more about the ingredients. You won’t try any street food on this tour, but we do visit some fabulous fondas, which are small, casual restaurants that serve homestyle food.
This tour offers an inside look at the nighttime eating scene in Mexico City. We’ll start out with a mezcal or an artisan Mexican microbrew to get the party started. Then we’ll try esquites (the city’s street-corn specialty) and then we’ll visit three iconic Mexico City taquerías. This tour offers tastes of tacos árabes, tacos al pastor and volcanes de queso (a crispy tostada slathered with melted cheese). It’s not fit for vegetarians but meat-eaters will love it! This tour also includes transportation in a private, chauffeured vehicle, and hotel pick-up and drop-off.
