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 couple of merchandise items for purchase: an Eat Mexico tote bag and a tortilla-making kit. The tote bag is perfect for taking on our Journey Through La Merced tour to fill with goodies. Our tortilla kit, originally designed for our Saving Native Corn: Tortilla Class & Workshop will help you out when you want to make fantastic tortillas in your own home.

We Love Capturing Mexican Food Moments

Although spring has not officially started yet, in Mexico City we are already enjoying sunny days and the jacarandas in bloom. These beautiful flowers brighten up the urban landscape for around two months in many iconic points of the city.⁠

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. ⁠
Enjoy a fruit tasting among many other delicious stops during the Gourmet San Juan Market and Street Food Tour. Follow the link in the bio to see all the details and book. ⁠

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!⁠

Tomorrow at 5pm (Mexico City time) we will be live with @ptexcellencetours showing how to cook tamales!⁠
Tamales can be an everyday breakfast or dinner, but they can also have a special meaning when they are served for special occasions such as Christmas or Dia de Muertos. The best part is that there is a huge variety of tamales depending on the region where they are made. ⁠

Specialty coffee is distinguished by the care it takes throughout the entire production process and the traceability that tells us which people and places were involved in its production. It is possible to obtain specialty coffee thanks to the efforts of many people. It starts from the producers, through the roasters, the baristas and finally the consumer. ⁠

Choosing this coffee brings benefits to the consumer, since it gives them access to a quality product that supports fair trade.⁠
In Mexico we are fortunate to have several coffee growing areas in which producer families, for generations, have made an effort every day to take care of their processes.⁠

Don't miss the opportunity to taste specialty Mexican coffee and roast a small batch on November 27th at 100:00am. The group admits a maximum of 6 people. Follow the link in our bio to book the Coffee Tasting & Roasting Experience.⁠

What is the first thing that you think when you hear “Mexican food”? The truth is that Mexican food is so rich and diverse that is hard to summarize it in just a few words. Today we celebrate the National Mexican Gastronomy Day and we want to thank all the people that with great effort participate in preserving its cultural richness. ⁠

Continuously learning and sharing this knowledge is what keeps us going and inspires us to lead food tours. Follow the link in our bio to see all the tours available. ⁠

Malted grains are one of the basic ingredients for making beer, along with hops, water and yeast. Malting is a controlled process of germination and drying of grains with the objective of changing its proteins and starches structure. This process is easy to understand when you compare it to the school project every kid does: to germinate seeds and watch them sprout. The difference is that for malting, the seeds are dried right after germinating. ⁠

Come and learn more about how beer is made in our newest experience “Brewery Tour & Craft Beer Tasting”. This is a private experience, which means it would be only you and your group participating in the tour and the tasting. Find the link to book in our bio. ⁠

Mezcal is often served in this kind of glasses (wider than tequila shot glasses) because they allow the spirit to breathe, making it easier to perceive the complexity of its aroma. ⁠

Enjoy a mezcal tasting during our “Narvarte at Night Tour: Tacos, Chelas & Mezcal” available Tuesday through Saturday. ⁠

Today is the International Food Day and we are taking a moment to reflect about our relationship with food. What can we do as individuals to have a more sustainable nutrition?⁠

🍋Choose local food: whenever possible support farmers markets and help your local economy.⁠

🍏Choose seasonal: this even helps reducing your carbon footprint because it involves produce that hasn’t traveled a long way to arrive to your local market. It’s tastier and more nutritious.⁠

🌽Support development initiatives: such as community gardens which bring together the neighborhood creating a positive impact. ⁠

We want to thank @verdsantamaria for the amazing job they are doing in the Santa María la Ribera neighborhood. They have different workshops about urban agriculture and “herbolaria”, healing through herbs and natural medicine. ⁠

Check out our “The Best of Santa María la Ribera” tour that includes the best bites of the neighborhood and a visit to this project. ⁠

Day of the dead is getting closer and closer! Bakers know this and they are making big amounts of “pan de muerto”, a special bread for this celebration. The classic one in Mexico City has an orange blossom taste and is covered with sugar. In every part of the country different variations are available now. ⁠

Don’t miss out on our special “Day of the Dead at Mercado Jamaica” seasonal tour. Available only from October 22 until November 1. ⁠
