Secret Food Tours: Mexico City will introduce you to traditional recipes and a vibrant cuisine using ancestral ingredients from the Aztecs, Mexicas, and more.
- As our food journey begins we start with a fresh guacamole served with crispy homemade tortillas to enjoy an authentic dish, experienced the traditional way.
- At our next location we stop for a typical dish homemade by a local Mexican family. You will taste the love abuelas — grandmothers — put in their food.
- As our tour continues, we'll enjoy an original octopus taco and seasoned with the sauce of our choice.
- We stop at a tortilleria, a shop that makes fresh tortillas, and where locals flow in and out all day, buying them fresh.
- Next up we eat a delicious “panucho", a typical dish from the southern state of Yucatán, made of a fried tortilla stuffed with refried black beans and topped with pork and pickled red onion. This authentic mix of flavors is a favorite.
- We then make our way to a place specializing in tamales, a dough made from nixtamalized corn (hominy) and lard or vegetable shortening. Tamales are usually wrapped in corn leaves before being steamed or cooked, and the type of the presentation depends on the region they come from.
- At our final destination, we will have our signature Secret Dish, finishing our culinary adventure with an unforgettable classic.
