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.

Here is an idea of fun for all ages that never runs out of juice. These handmade wooden toys are a colorful souvenir option from Mexico. They are available in some street stands and in specialty handicrafts markets. ⁠
We recommend going shopping with a full belly after having taken the Gourmet San Juan Market Tour. Very close to our last food stop you will find the recently renovated San Juan Handicraft Market full of clothes, toys, jewelry, decorations and more.⁠

Taquito de sal is one of the most simple yet incredibly satisfying snacks ever. Take a fresh tortilla, add salt and a few drops of homemade salsa and there you have it. The key is to find a tortilla made with fresh masa from the local mill versus the industrialized corn flour version. It’s very common to eat it while waiting in line to buy tortillas. Most tortillerías provide the salt and salsa as a free sample. ⁠

Chapulines a.k.a. grasshoppers are a sustainable source of protein. They are also crunchy, salty and delicious with lime juice. In Mexico its consumption has been inherited from an ancient tradition than can be traced to the Aztecs and many other pre-Columbian cultures. ⁠

Finding people selling them in the streets is a matter of luck, come and try them with us during the Gourmet San Juan Market Tour. This activity includes a fruit tasting and many other savory snacks (tacos, tostadas, tlacoyos and more), it’s available every day starting at 10:30am. ⁠

Can you imagine a taco without salsa? We sure can’t. Salsas are not just about how much heat you can take. They balance the experience of eating a taco by adding acidity and flavor. The spiciness is what gets you coming back for more, because of the pleasure it creates. Just thinking about it is mouthwatering!⁠

Join us in happy eating and enjoy delicious salsas in every single one of our tours. ⁠

Molcajetes, clay pots and baskets are part of traditional Mexican food culture. They can be seen both in the Popular Art Museum (MAP) and in markets and kitchens. Its use comes from a long tradition and reinforces our identity linked to Mexican cuisine. So that future generations do not see them solely as museum pieces, it is important to keep their use alive. Their importance is not only historical, but for the end result they create. The pleasure offered by a salsa made in molcajete or beans cooked in a clay pot are undeniable, compared to using a blender or a pressure cooker.⁠

Join us to visit markets and street food stands in small groups guided by local food experts. Also take into account our recommendation: during your visit to Mexico City you cannot miss the Popular Art Museum and its majestic collection. ⁠
