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.


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.

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.
