Street Food, Pulque and Mezcal
Time: 4 to 5 hours
Held: Monday-Saturday, 3:00-7:00 p.m.
Description: Join us on a tour that combines some of Lesley’s favorite things: street food and mezcal, the distilled spirit made from the agave plant. On this tour we’ll start out by nibbling on street food: seafood tacos, tlacoyos, quesadillas, and mole enchiladas. Then we’d move on to a local pulquería, where we’d try a few varieties and learn about the history of this native Mexican beverage, made from fermented maguey sap. Lastly, we’d finish in a mezcalería, where one of Mexico City’s top mezcal aficionados would give us a tasting of four small-batch, artisan mezcales that you can’t find outside Mexico. There would also be a chance to purchase this mezcal afterward. This tour is about 4 hours long and is conducted in the Roma neighborhood.
Note: On Saturdays, this tour takes place in the Centro Histórico and the route is slightly different. If you’re interested in a Saturday mescal tour, please email us for details.
- $135 USD per person for 2 people

This tour offers tastes of tacos de suadero, tacos al pastor and volcanes de queso, a crispy tostada slathered with melted cheese. It’s not fit for vegetarians but meat-eaters will love it!
