FIVE-STAR GUIDES

Our guides have received five-star reviews for over 10 years now. They’ve studied Mexican gastronomy formally and have hands-on experience working in kitchens. They’re not only friendly and patient, but also eager to share their expert knowledge about understanding the local food scene.

CULTURAL IMMERSION

We avoid touristy spots and keep our group sizes small. This way, you can experience Mexico how locals do — from the lens of someone who knows it well. We’ll lead you to great food and empower you to eat confidently throughout your time in Mexico.

FLEXIBLE CANCELLATION

Things happen when you travel. We get it! With Eat Mexico, you can cancel up to 48 hours before your tour begins and receive a full refund. After that 48 hour period, we’ll only charge you a small administrative fee and return the rest to you.

Mexican Food, Culture, & Fun

Join Our Local Guides To See A Whole New Side of Mexico City

In Mexico City, two food worlds exist side by side: the restaurants and the streets. It can be hard to know which sidewalk grills, market stalls, taquerías, and cantinas to visit if you’re not familiar with the city. Enter: the Eat Mexico team.

On our tours, we’ll whisk you away from the tourist traps and take you to places that our local resident guides know and love. We want you to connect with Mexico City in a profound way, by tasting the food that residents eat and enjoy. You’ll learn the food’s history, the ingredients, the how’s and the why’s. You’ll hear from the guides and meet our vendors, as we’re all proud to share our heritage.

Each of our Mexican food tours has been carefully designed by our on-the-ground team to highlight three things: the deliciousness of the cuisine, the richness of Mexican gastronomic history and culture, and the vendors who prepare the food. Whichever tour fits your interests, our local and bilingual guides will give you an experience you won’t forget.

The Team Behind Eat Mexico

Locally Operated Since 2010

Eat Mexico has been women-owned and women-led since our founding in 2010. Today, we still have the same goal we always did: to celebrate Mexican cooking and Mexican culinary history, and to shine a light on the cooks who prepare it. Sustainability is important to us, too—we donate a portion of our yearly profits to organizations that empower women and fight hunger in Mexico.

Eat Mexico’s

Cookbook & Merchandise

Written by Eat Mexico’s founder, Lesley Téllez, “Eat Mexico: The Cookbook” encapsulates everything we love about Mexico City’s street food. Lesley, a journalist and former Mexican food blogger, shares classic recipes from local street stands, city markets, and small homestyle fondas. This makes the perfect gift for any Mexican food fanatic!

We also offer a merchandise item for purchase: an Eat Mexico tote. This tote bag is perfect for taking on our Journey Through La Merced tour to fill with goodies.

Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone! Although in Mexico this day is not a celebration, it's important to remember that it's part of our history. We like to know that in the United States it's a reason to bring people together and have a good time. 🍹⁠

Bolillos ❤️⁠
This type of bread is one of the greatest gastronomic pleasures for the inhabitants of Mexico City. Its crispy crust and soft crumb provide a great experience. It can be enjoyed on its own, fresh from the oven, or prepared with all kinds of savory fillings. It is popularly said that it helps to recover from a scary situation: "un bolillo pa'l susto".⁠

One of the goals of our food tours is to share culture and Mexican food on a deeper level. Look at all the options we have in the link in our biography.⁠

To savor the perfect taco, add lime juice and salsa; the acidity helps balance the flavors. In Mexico limes are known as “limones” and lemons are “limones amarillos”. Limes are more common and cheaper than lemons. ⁠

This pulque is one of our favorites: It is mixed with fresh tomato pulp which makes it very refreshing and even adds a little sweet taste. The salt and chile crust in the glass create a satisfying contrast. Pulque combines the benefits of probiotics with low alcohol content. ⁠

This steaming burrito is about to be rolled up and served with chipotle sauce. The filling contains refried beans, squash blossom, epazote, cheese, onion and tomato. Although burritos are not originally from Mexico City, we can find some excellent ones adapted to the ingredients available here. This burrito street stand offers a taste of the north of Mexico: large buttery and fluffy flour tortillas and a half-dozen homemade salsas to choose from.⁠

Pitahaya (also known as dragon fruit) comes from a cactus plant native to the American continent. Its texture can be compared to that of kiwifruit because of the sensation of juicy flesh and crunchy small seeds. ⁠
This fruit can be used in desserts and cocktails, but for trying it for the first time it is best to eat the fruit directly. ⁠

Happy New Year! 🍾⁠
⁠We enter 2021 with positivity and great energy. We look forward to seeing you all at some point next year. As for now, Mexico City is in red alert, which means that non-essential activities are suspended and people are advised to stay home. The health of our clients, vendors and guides is our number one priority, which is why we have suspended tours until January 11th to comply with the government’s alert.⁠

We will forever be grateful to @lesleytellez and are very thankful for the new friends we’ve made this year @ptexcellencetours @deluxe_connection @cerveceriaitanene @parededormir and are very excited about the friends we will make in 2021!⁠
