Allow yourself to be seduced by the authentic tastes of Mexican food on this tour through the heart of Mexico City, where you'll visit a local market to learn all about the essential ingredients.
Mexico City Food Tour
Our tour begins at the exit of the Centro Médico metro station, from where we'll head to a local market to learn first hand about the basic ingredients used in the making of the most popular recipes in the Mexican cookbook. And in the auction square, you'll see a wide variety of colourful local goods for sale, including flowers and the special Latin American corn used to make the delicious 'elotes'.
It's all very well knowing the theory, but there's no substitute for some hands-on practice! So we'll start out with some exotic fruits, such as lulo, pitahaya, tuna, zapote… and you'll be taught how to distinguish one from the other. And that delicious smell wafting towards you from the street stalls? We'll taste the wares from several of the food stalls nearby, authentic Mexican tacos and the other dishes that have made Mexican cuisine famous worldwide.
Then we'll head to the centre of Mexico City to delight your taste buds with some sweet delicacies typical of the capital. And these finger-licking treats will come accompanied with a tepache, a fermented pineapple drink seen and drunk all over the city.
