Overview
Savor the flavors of Mexico on a 5-hour tasting tour of Mexico City and discover why its food heritage is recognized by UNESCO. From street corner tacos to Yucatecan pork, enjoy a range of Mexican dishes, including the insects eaten by ancient Mexicans.
What to Expect
Now that Mexican food has been acclaimed as a cultural heritage of humanity by UNESCO, the food scene of Mexico City is ripe to experience.

This specially designed 5-hour tour introduces you to the varied flavors of Mexico, tasting dishes based on the pre-Hispanic diet of corn, squash, chili, tomatoes, beans, avocado and chocolate, as well as more recent creations. A thrill for vegetarians, carnivores will not be disappointed by the beef and pork dishes that are now a staple of many Mexican households.

Go in search of squash blossom or huitlacoche (corn fungus) quesadillas. Try a beef taco, made from parts of a cow’s head that might be a culture shock! Try a typical "al pastor" taco (spit-grilled pork), found throughout Mexico City but best experienced at the EL Huequito taqueria.

Learn about the Yucatecan cuisine of the Yucatan peninsula by trying an authentic cochinita pibil (slow roasted pork) taco. Push your culinary boundaries and sample grasshoppers and other insects that were an essential part of the diet of ancient Mexico, and are now served in the finest city restaurants.

At Roldan 37 in the vibrant La Merced district, you can choose from various chef creations based on authentic Mexican recipes. And you will end your tour at the legendary Café Tacuba, to savor a rich milk chocolate drink beloved by most Mexicans.
