Tasty Bites in Mexico City

TACOS 🌮  ARE LIFE, we all know this fact of life. A taco lover in Mexico City, you will be in heaven with all of the Taqueria options, but it can certainly get overwhelming. Trying to find the best (and cleanest) taco place can seem daunting. My advice to overcome this daunting task? Tasty Bites Food Tour. With Tasty Bites, we were guided through El Centro and discovered some of the most mouth-watering flavors in Mexico City.

Tasty Bites was founded by a Vancouver native, who followed his passion for tacos and traveling, to Mexico City. He created a food tour that takes lucky participants through the heart of Mexico City’s most beautiful and delicious neighborhoods, all while sampling some of Mexico’s iconic flavors. Through his three hours guided tours, you will have the opportunity to sample exotic flavors while learning about the roots of Mexico City and observing the captivating architecture that has shaped that city for years. Choose between three dynamic neighborhoods: El Centro, Condesa or Roma Norte and let your taste buds go wild!

Our first stop was Tacos Aranadas, a small town stand on the side of a busy street. Here we only sampled one delicious Al Pastor taco despite wanting to try every single one. A true foodie knows that pacing yourself is essential on a food tour. The last thing you want is becoming too full for tacos that you have to skip the last few stops; GASP, I know. We could never. Pace yourself. You can always come back tomorrow.

Another important note to make while attending any food tour in any city, pay attention to holidays. Even though back home, the day after New Years everything returns to the hustle bustle that was; certain cities prolong their vacation and businesses stay closed for longer (America could take some hints, #morevacationtimeplease). Because we chose to partake on this taco tour during the holiday season certain restaurants and taquerias held irregular hours, meaning they were closed when we arrived.

It was basically like walking through one of my dreams; swimming in that spicy, lumpy green avocado deliciousness. We had randomly walked past it previously and the line was around the corner; after tasting their tacos I can easily understand why.                                    Tasty Bites in Mexico City | Chasing Krista | Mexico CityTasty Bites in Mexico City | Chasing Krista | Mexico City

Taqueria Los Cocuyos, another stop on the tour, served the suadero taco one of the best tacos I’ve ever had, EVER. Tried some lengua (cow tongue 👅 )….not my favorite…. but, give it a try!

The last place we visited was elhuequito. The staff was the sweetest and the tacos were indescribable; with the perfect spiciness of the sauce.

And finally, you can’t partake on a taco food tour in Mexico City without having tequila, duh.

 

Due to it being the holiday season–some the of taco places were closed; therefore we weren’t able to experience every delicious taco place that Robert had on his list, but the ones that we went to did not disappoint, and my taste buds were beyond delighted. Can’t wait to return to Mexico City to try another one of Tasty Bite’s Food Tours!

Those tacos look delicious and I would absolutely love to visit Mexico city. Food tours are fun but some groups are better than others, thanks for highlighting a good experience you had!

  3. They look delicious. Straight from the Mexico City street. I’m still looking for real Mexican taste here in the U.S. because the ones here I think it’s westernized already.

    1. Hi Kylieuk, the trick is to not move the taco. Hold the taco level and still and use your neck to bring your mouth to the taco.

    2. Ahh, its because you’re eating hard shell tacos. If you try authentic tacos with soft corn tortillas they don’t break apart and are easier to eat.
