What you'll do

We will start off the day in an organic Tortilleria and watch the whole process of making tortillas from scratch, learn about the story of the nixtamalization process, and how deeply maiz is embedded in the Mexican culture. We will continue on a walking tour through the charming Condesa and Roma neighborhoods, discover and taste a wide variety of authentic regional tacos from across Mexico, and learn about their history. We will also explore a local market where you will learn about some of the staple ingredients used in Mexican cuisine.

There is no better way to wash down tacos with a delicious agua fresca or a cold beer. We will finish with amazing Mexican coffee and artisanal chocolate.

Other things to note:
The tour is very dynamic, we can mix and change attractions as the tour goes on. I can also accommodate the experience for different dietary restrictions.
I look forward to meeting you!

I had very high expectations coming into this tour, and this experience did not disappoint! Avidan takes care to share about the history and culture of the food you are eating throughout the tour, and brings so much passion as you visit some of his favorite spots in the city. The tacos seemed to be getting better and better with each stop. The Mensch does a great job showing off his community, and creating one on the tour. Highly recommend!

I had a really good afternoon and visited so many places I wouldn’t have otherwise. Avidan was kind and helpful, he answered all my questions and was just a generally happy and considerate tour guide. I am a vegetarian and there was plenty for me to eat, I was definitely not hungry by the end of it! Would recommend for everyone!

Take this tour! Avidan is passionate about food and Mexico City and it clearly shows. On top of that, he's so open and outgoing and we felt like we immediately made a friend. We're staying in cdmx for a month and this was a great way to orient us to our new neighborhood and have some great taco options right off the bat! We've already returned to some of the places Avidan took us, and he's been helpful in providing more recommendations for food and sights! He took Covid precautions and had hand sanitizer available at every place and even pointed out places where we could wash our hands or go to the bathroom.

The taco tour I took with Avidan exceeded all of my expectations! Firstly, it was just the 2 of us, which felt really special. He taught me SO much about this area of Mexico City, and I truly felt I was brought to some of the best foodie spots around. Not only did he fill my brain with useful and interesting info, he also offered so many great recommendations for the rest of my time here! Our conversations were great, and it felt like I was hanging out with an old friend. Take this tour, you will not regret it! Cheers ❤️

If you are going to Mexico City this tour is a must. Avi was super high energy, thoughtful, and engaging. We ate SO MUCH got to learn about tacos and best of all taste what Mexico City had to offer. I’d highly recommend it, especially to any English speaker.
