Eat Mexico is women-owned and women-led—and we have been since our founding in 2010. Read more about our organization and our administrative team below. You can also read more about our team of stellar guides on Our Guides.
ARIANE RUIZ, OPERATIONS MANAGER AND GUIDE
Ariane was born and raised in Mexico City — her dad is Mexican and her mom is French, which gave her a multicultural childhood. She started working at the age of 15 at her family’s coffee shop, where she learned to love Mexican coffee. Ariane studied gastronomy at the Universidad del Claustro de Sor Juana. When she’s not touring, she caters desserts for parties. Baking is one of her passions, especially French pastries with a twist of Mexican ingredients. She loves to travel, and she loves movies and art. Ariane also leads another important role at Eat Mexico as the company’s Operations Manager.
Favorite thing about Mexico City: The variety of food. You can find great samples of regional cooking from all over the country.
Favorite part of the city: Centro Histórico, because it is full of museums, great food and a lot of historical places.
ANGELES PEREZ, CLIENT SERVICE LEADER
Angeles, a Mexico City native, is our reservations whiz, running Eat Mexico’s calendar and directing all client communication. Angeles holds a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Business Administration, and she worked for years as a high school and middle school English school teacher. Before being hired at Eat Mexico, she operated a gluten-free cake business, brainstorming recipes and ferrying delicious desserts to families all around Mexico City. When Angeles is not processing Eat Mexico reservations and being an all-around customer service dynamo, she loves to cook for her son.
Favorite street food: Anything with a tortilla: tacos, quesadillas or just a tortilla rolled with salt. Tortillas are a staple of Mexican food which makes it so diverse and amazing.
Favorite thing about Mexican food: The fact that lime juice can be added to all sorts of foods: tlacoyos, tacos de carnitas, quesadillas… anything can be enriched with a couple drops of lime juice!
