***Please know that we are not interested in showing you fancy places like Condesa/Roma/Polanco. We strive to show you local, family-run, off-the-beaten-path places*** So you are vegan or vegetarian, and feel like you are missing out on Mexico City's iconic street food? Fear not, for we are here to feed you. Join us in this walking adventure through the city and sample delicious street food—all vegan and vegetarian. Focusing on four different neighborhoods and with a route that spans through 3.5 km through the city, we will visit hidden gems, street-food stalls and brick-and-mortar family businesses. You will taste tacos al pastor, mole de setas, tortas de milanesa and so much more in this four to 5-hour experience. You will also try typical drinks such as hibiscus, tamarind and horchata. We will go into detail about how the food is made, and give you information about its relevance and place in Mexican culture. In the end, we will chill, have a beer in a really lively neighborhood while digest all the gloriousness we consumed during our rendezvous. We will walk everywhere so bring sunscreen and comfortable shoes!
