We love Colonia Roma, our favorite barrio in Mexico City. Home to tree-lined esplanades, sceney restaurants from world-renowned chefs, stunning architecture, and Mexico City’s reigning axis of cool. So of course we curated the perfect walking tour through this hip neighborhood — with lots of memorable food stops.
We’ll begin the tour just west of Avenida de los Insurgentes near the Plaza Villa de Madrid. From there, you will embark on a 3 hour walking food tour showcasing 6 delicious food tasting locations featuring the best of the Colonia Roma culinary scene. Tasting locations range from Mexican fusion hot spots to traditional eateries preparing classic recipes using organic farm-to-table ingredients and from specialty stores. You’ll interact with friendly owners and staff to learn about Mexico’s food culture while supporting local businesses.
Between tastings you will get a glimpse into day-to-day life in Mexico City as our expert local guides provide commentary on Colonia Roma’s fascinating past and present. You will learn about the neighborhood’s varied architectural gems and historic landmarks.
By the end of this tour, you’re going to be full and knowledgeable!
