Tacos, grasshoppers, mole negro, quesadillas… discover the authentic taste of Oaxaca with this street food tour through the most important markets in the city.
The tour meets in front of the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption, from where we'll begin our street food tour of Oaxaca. We'll head out to get to know the real taste of this Mexican city, only for the brave!
Having walked some five minutes, we'll arrive art the Benito Juarez market, a lively market where you can find fresh produce, cooked food, and even artisanal wares.
We'll also visit one of the most important markets in the city: the 20th November market, both being found in the centre of the city, less than 500 metres from the town hall square. Their great location will give you an idea of the importance of both for the local inhabitants.
Now comes the most popular moment on the tour. Our guide will explain throughout which dishes to eat or not, depending on your personal tastes: some of the local specialties you can try are roasted meat (chorizo, spiced meat, jerky), grasshoppers (seasoned with salt, lemon, chilli or garlic), mole negro tamales with chicken (a local specialty that simply has to be tried), various quesadillas, stuffed chilles (with meat or cheese), roasted cactus, or the typical guacamole with lemon.
After an hour and a half discovering new flavours in both markets, we'll end the tour where it began.
During the tour you will be offered all kinds of dishes to try, so you have complete freedom when deciding what to tryand what not to try. All the options of the dishes you choose should be paid for seperately, and the prices of each main dish vary between 20 (0.85 euros aprox.) to 60 mxn (2.5 euros aprox.).
