Narvarte At Night: Tacos, Chelas & Mezcal

Narvarte is known throughout Mexico City for its tacos, and we’ll kick off the tour with a visit to a neighborhood taquería that specializes in volcanes, a type of crispy tortilla cooked on a charcoal flame, smothered in cheese and poblano peppers. From there we’ll try tacos al pastor—picture a big outdoor roasting spit, shooting flames—and suadero tacos from vendors who’ve been in the neighborhood for decades.

We’ll visit a lively cantina to learn more about Mexico City cantina culture, where we’ll toss back a chela, slang for cold beer, or a cocktail if you wish. And we’ll finish by trying a flight of small-batch, artisanal mezcals in a cozy neighborhood restaurant, part of a private mezcal tasting led by a local chef and expert.

If you want a tour that combines food, culture, and drinks, this is not to be missed!

Journey Through La Merced

On this tour we’ll wind through the market’s lively banquetón, or prepared food area, tasting tacos, aguas frescas and tamales. After that, we’ll stroll through the gigantic fruits and vegetables building, and learn about—and taste!—prehispanic ingredients, such as grasshoppers and chicatana ants. After a quick stop to rest, we’ll leave the market to take the subway back to the Historic Center where we’ll finish up the tour with a refreshing drink and a snack in a newly revived part of the city that you won’t want to miss!

Besides eating, you’ll meet the vendors and learn their stories, and uncover rich facts about Mexican food and culture from your expert guide.

The Best of Santa Maria de la Ribera

Santa María la Ribera, little known to most travelers, is a beautiful, 19th-century neighborhood of cafés and restaurants, plus traditional shops you’re starting to see less of in Mexico City. On this tour, you’ll visit the best places to eat in the area and you’ll learn the stories of the vendors and entrepreneurs who are shaping the modern character of this close-knit, artsy neighborhood. Some of the tour's highlights include stopping at a neat local garden, where you’ll make your own herb-infused Mexican salt, visiting a working tamales factory that offers more than 20 varieties daily, strolling through the local market to see how a traditional city market looks and feels, popping into a neighborhood cooking school and restaurant that helps locals who may want to start their own food businesses. You'll also stop by a hidden pulquería—a place with swinging saloon doors and no sign—that’s drawn neighborhood residents for more than 100 years.

Eat México has curated an amazing tour of Narvarte’s tacos, cantinas, and contemporary Mexican cuisine - and our guide, Nicolas, was exceptional. He paced the evening as we wished and was a wealth of knowledge! The special finale (a private mezcal pairing with the proprietor of Piloncillo y Cascabel) made a fabulous evening exceptional! Do not miss this tour and be sure to request Nicolas!

Last week I did the tortilla class, the street food beginner's guide, and the chilango tacos tour. I loved them all, I learned so much, and had some amazing food. Worth every penny!

We did a small tour with Tonali (sp?) through the market and canals at Xochimilco just south of Mexico City. We had a blast walking the market for several hours sampling more than half a dozen different treats. And the ride in the canal during that beautiful day will be something I always remember about the tour. I highlty recommend and would do another tour from Eat Mexico the next time I'm in Mexico.

We did this tour on Feb 20th with a very enthusiastic lady guide. We visited several venues, inside ones as well as outside. It gave us a real insight into Mexican snack menus. Make sure that your appetite is sharp as there are many things to try. We ended at an Italian place which had an interesting take on Mexican food as well as a fascinating mescal tasting. I heartily recommend this tour.

The tour started at 7.30pm with a Volcanes taco, we then moved to a locals tavern where we had a superb soup. From here the highlight a pork taco with pineapple. The tacoeria is a car repair place by day and at night they serve 18000 tacos with people travelling from all over Mexico City to have one before they close at 4am in the morning! The taco was simple gorgeous! From there a beef taco on a street corner and then tongue and finished off with a mezcal tasting. A super evening excellently guided by Nicos.
