Great Intro to Polonco and Its Food Scene

Polanco Food Tour in Mexico City (Private and Smalls Groups Only)
My boyfriend and I stayed in Polonco during our Mexico City trip, and I booked this tour as a way to get to know the neighborhood. So glad I did! Our host Bili did a great job explaining the different types of food we sampled at each restaurant. We've revisited two of the places that were on our tour, one of them multiple times!

Polanco Food Tour in Mexico City (Private and Smalls Groups Only)
Due to a very busy weekend, we ended up with Chef Eduardo as our guide. This was perfect! He taught us a bunch about local ingredients and culinary practices. The locations and dishes selected were a great variety of the cuisines offered in CDMX. The food was amazing.... but go with a big appetite because you'll need it! We left with full stomachs and a good friend!

Polanco Food Tour in Mexico City (Private and Smalls Groups Only)
We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Luis during our walking food tour of the Polanquito neighborhood. Not only did we sample many eats, but we received some background and historical context for the neighborhood as well. We will definitely go back to some of the places on the tour and to some of the restaurant recommendations he provided. I highly recommend this tour, and request him as a guide if you can.

Polanco Food Tour in Mexico City (Private and Smalls Groups Only)
What a great culinary experience, Luis our tour guide was very knowledgeable of the area, the history of the restaurants and of course of the food we enjoyed, very fluent on both English and Spanish, pleasant and well educated. The weather in CDMX is outstanding so walking to the different restaurants gives you the chance to enjoy the scenery and to digest. Highly recommended

Polanco Food Tour in Mexico City (Private and Smalls Groups Only)
I made my decision based on previous reviews and it was the right decision. It may seem a bit pricey but as first time visitors to Polanco it was worth it to taste the different foods, learn about the making and origins of the foods and to get a mini tour of the locale. It made exploring the area much easier having been guided to the best spots by Luis. It was the first time my wife and I have ever eaten a tamale and we loved it. We enjoyed listening to Luis and his enthusiasm for Mexican food.

When to Get There

Many businesses and shops close between 2pm and 4pm, and traffic can be heavy around that time. Mexico City’s peak tourist season typically runs from November to May, so it may be more difficult to get a table at Polanco’s popular restaurants then.
