      The best private food tours in Mexico City

      Designated the world’s next great dining destination by food experts around the globe, Mexico City is in the middle of the type of culinary renaissance formerly reserved for places like Paris and Tokyo. The city’s new generation of chefs has perfected the art of authentic Mexican food with a decidedly modern twist, putting the city on the world culinary map in the process. Mexican cuisine – already mind-blowingly delicious even at the humblest stalls, trucks, carts, and makeshift windows – has only been elevated in recent years, with gourmet food halls and upmarket eateries popping up across the city. On a food tour in Mexico, you can experience it all.

      Street eats fit for royalty In Mexico City, over 75 percent of locals eat street food weekly – and with popular foods like tlayudas (toasted tortilla covered in beans, meat, and cheese), barbacoa (tender steamed meat), and cochinita pibil (roast pork), and chocolate-dipped churros, it’s not hard to see why. Think you know tacos? Mexico City has hundreds of types, and thousands of taquerías to try them at on your food tour. Choose among suadero tacos made with thin-cut beef, barbacoa tacos (the meat is traditionally slow-cooked in an underground oven), and canasta tacos stacked high in a cloth-covered basket.

      Authentic Mexican food is one of the most vibrant and colorful cuisines in the world thanks to its liberal use of fresh herbs and chilies. On your food tour, you’ll find a sprawling range of places to eat – but when it comes to sheer flavor, there’s little to separate ambitious restaurants and hipster-approved cafés from simple street food carts and hole-in-the-wall haunts. Whether you’re on a mission to find the best restaurants in Mexico City or you’re satisfied trawling no-frills neighborhood food markets for budget bites, a food tour in this city could never disappoint.

      Mexico City itself is a patchwork quilt of Aztec landmarks embedded into the fabric of the modern city, and its cuisine is no different – a Mexico City food tour is like a trip through time. Authentic Mexican food and its unique flavors can be traced back several centuries: Salsa and tortilla wraps were sold at ancient food markets; Spaniards in Mexico were served traditional tamales (a popular street food to this day) by Aztecs in the 16th century; and, the Portuguese aided the spread of chili peppers in the mid-1500s. Who says a food tour can’t be educational?

        It was all good. I loved the learning about Mexican culture and Mexico City history. Visiting the historic center was the high point of the tour.

        Nicolas gave an excellent walking tour of downtown Mexico City. We had no knowledge of the city, so we just let him decide what to see. Nico arranged a walking tour from the modern business district to the ancient Zocalo. It was fascinating to see the history unfold in reverse order. Nico was very patient with a group of very tired gringos who awoke at 4 am to catch a flight from Mazatlan (eclipse viewing trip). We stopped for coffee to gain energy. The evening was capped off with a fantastic restaurant recommendation from Nicolas. We were very pleased with the trip!
