Narvarte is known throughout Mexico City for its tacos, and we’ll kick off the tour with a visit to a neighborhood taquería that specializes in volcanes, a type of crispy tortilla cooked on a charcoal flame, smothered in cheese and poblano peppers. From there we’ll try tacos al pastor—picture a big outdoor roasting spit, shooting flames—and suadero tacos from vendors who’ve been in the neighborhood for decades.

We’ll visit a lively cantina to learn more about Mexico City cantina culture, where we’ll toss back a chela, slang for cold beer, or a cocktail if you wish. And we’ll finish by trying a flight of small-batch, artisanal mezcals in a cozy neighborhood restaurant, part of a private mezcal tasting led by a local chef and expert.

If you want a tour that combines food, culture, and drinks, this is not to be missed!

What To Expect

Navarte Poniente
Beyond the glitz and gloss of the Condesa/Roma sits the Narvarte, a solidly middle-class neighborhood known for its dozens of family-style taquerías and a tranquil setting that hasn’t changed much in decades. On this walking tour, we’ll show you the vibe of a typical Mexico City colonia at night, as we visit taquerías and bars, and join a local chef in a small-batch mezcal tasting.

The Narvarte at Night tour was one of the best food tours we have ever done. Our guide Tonalli was excellent - she has a culinary background and really knows the food scene in Mexico City. Her love for local food from Mexico City and her love for the city in general is infectious and makes the tour fun and memorable. There were four stops on the tour (the last one was a mezcal tasting with dessert) and the food at each stop was amazing. We went to places we would never have found on our own and also had the chance to see Narvarte which is known for its taquerias. It was a great way to spend a night in Mexico City

We went on this tour on our last night in CDMX, and it was potentially the highlight of the trip! Nico was knowledgeable, funny, and great at answering our many questions. It was worth every dollar - in large part because you get so much about the culture and tradition of tacos/mezcal, rather than just a food tasting (which was also delicious!). Nico also did a great job of adapting to our dietary restrictions, making it a fun and inclusive experience.
Highly Recommend! Culinary Experience

We had an amazing time on our tour! Our guide Nico was extremely knowledgable and provided a wonderful, authentic experience. It was much more than just a taco tour, but a culinary experience and a chance to eat amazing food and learn about the culture and history of Mexico City. Highly recommend!
Best part of our Mexico City visit!

Fantastic experience! Great food and great cultural setting. The best part was the guide - Nico was so informative, fun and a great communicator. Highly recommend this tour.
Great night eating “where the locals eat” at taquerias and cantinas. Ending the night with a mezcal tasting.

My husband and I took this tour guided by Nico. It was fantastic. He took us to local taquerias and cantinas- places he actually goes to. The night ended with a mezcal tasting. Highly recommend!
