Private Roma Foodie Tour
Some staples of Mexican cuisine, such as tortillas and mole, have become famous the world over, while delicacies like huitlacoche or escamoles can only be fully enjoyed within the borders of Mexico itself. On this 3-hour tasting tour through Roma neighborhood with a food expert, we’ll learn the stories behind these famous food staples while discovering the hidden culinary treats.
Our expert will lay the foundation of the culinary exploration with a brief explanation of the neighborhood of Roma itself, a close knit community of entrepreneurial businesses and creative restaurants. Nearby we’ll find our first stop where we will focus on the basis of the Mexican diet: corn. We’ll learn its pre-Colombian history and taste some of the best corn dishes that Mexico City has to offer. From there, we may turn our focus to foods brought by the Spanish in the 1500’s, such as pork, dairy, wheat, and almonds, as we taste how these basic ingredients have been adapted through the centuries in the New World.
We’ll then take a pleasant stroll through the neighborhood as we continue our discussion on how Mexico’s history has influenced the food we eat today. Depending on the conversation, the group’s interests and operating hours of the neighborhood venues, we may head to a restaurant specializing in a particular regional dish, or we may prefer a look at the latest food trends with tastings of Mexican fusion.
After satiating both our minds and bellies with savory stories and dishes, we’ll then conclude our experience on a sweet note of perhaps churros and hot chocolate or ice cream with novel flavors of local fruits. Here our experts will be sure to pass on their best recommendations of must-try restaurants for dining on your own afterwards.
At the conclusion of this tasty adventure, we’ll have reviewed both the origins of Mexican cuisine and lesser-known realms of regional and/or cutting-edge fusion dishes. The Roma food tour will be a fantastic educational and experiential basis from which you may enjoy the rest of your meals in Mexico City.
Afternoon at leisure to visit the El Museo Nacional de Antropología, or the National Museum of Anthropology, is recognized as one of the most important museums safeguarding the legacy of indigenous Mexico and contains some of the country’s most vital artifacts like the magnificent Stone of the Sun (perhaps better known as the Aztec calendar stone).

Private Tour to Xochimilco Coyoacán with market and Frida Kahlo Museum with skip the line tickets

Experience a wonderful experience for the senses as visit the vibrant market of Xochimilco, feast on pre-hispanic cuisine and float along the flower-perfumed canals aboard a brilliantly colourful “tajinera”, the traditional flat-bottomed gondolas of the waterways or kayak. Discover the ancient heritage of the city as you explore the last of the five lakes which the city was once built upon, stealing a glimpse into the world of Tenochtitlán, and seeing for yourself why this cultural landscape was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
