Amazing tour, worth every second!

An incredible walk around Mexico City’s street food world! We were introduced to several local restauranthosts who let us taste plenty of good food; tacos, churros, insects, cheese, coyos and more. We were also introduced to high quality Mezcal. This was a very entertaining way to learn about local foods! And our new friend (guide) Ari was an incredible nice and pleasant person to be around! Accordingly he was very knowledgeable about Mexico’s history and food history. He took his time to teach us a lot on our way. We will highly recommend his services!

It was much better than other simple walking tours

Thanks to this tour, I was able to understand the food and culture in Mexico. Ari was very knowledgeable, considerate, and has a good sense of humor. He checked my preferences very much in detail and then guided me in various places. In the meantime, he guided and explained important architecture, history, culture, and people. I was able to ask him so many questions I had had during my solo travel time. I had other three tours but that was the best. If I had more days to stay in Mexicocity, I would definitely do this tour again.

Hungry For More

Paco was a wonderful guide. It became clear to my fiancée and I at the beginning, that he knows his food. He's a nice guy, he's engaging, intelligent, and moves the tour along at our pace. Everything tasted great. Authentic, Mexican food in the heart of Mexico City. Sugar skulls, tacos, tlacoyo, churros, chocolate and cheese. If it's a cool, rainy afternoon, the Mezcal will definitely warm you up. And if you're feeling adventurous, there's even crickets. Try 'em out, I promise it's all good. And of course, we're in Mexico City. So there's plenty to see. Blink and you could miss it. Thanks again.

Mexican cuisine is a vibrant fan with a rich history, diverse flavors, and cultural influences that have evolved over thousands of years. It’s a culinary journey that mirrors the country’s complex heritage and traditions.

Foundations of Mexican Cuisine:

Ancient Roots: Mexican cuisine’s roots can be traced back to indigenous cultures such as the Aztecs, Mayans, and Toltecs. These civilizations cultivated maiz (corn), beans, chili peppers, tomatoes, avocados, and cocoa, which formed the cornerstone of their diet and continue to be staples in Mexican cooking.

Melding of Cultures: The arrival of Spanish conquistadors in the 16th century introduced new ingredients like rice, wheat, and various meats, including pork, chicken, and beef. This fusion of native Mesoamerican ingredients and European influences led to the birth of dishes that are unique to Mexican cuisine.

Mexican cuisine is incredibly diverse, varying from region to region. Each area boasts its unique specialties influenced by local ingredients, climate, and cultural heritage.

  • Northern Mexico: Known for its beef dishes, grilled meats, flour tortillas, and dishes with Tex-Mex influences.
  • Central Mexico: Birthplace of iconic dishes like tacos, enchiladas, and pozole. This region showcases complex moles and rich sauces.
  • Southern Mexico: Renowned for its tamales, Oaxacan cuisine, and the use of ingredients like chocolate, mole, and grasshoppers in traditional dishes.
