Couldn't rate this food tour highly enough! The food in the Yucatán region is special enough to begin with, but our guide was very friendly and informative, taking us to the 'hidden' spots in the winding Merida market, a seafood spot and finally an ice cream parlour (with unique flavours!). All the food and drink was included as part of the tour and provided an authentic and special experience.
Our guide Azul was great! We started off with touring the main market in Centro (Mercado Gálvez). We learned how the market was laid out, where to find fish, local produce, regional produce, meats, spices and everything else. We sampled fresh fruits that had never heard of before (our favorite was caimito), we tasted panuchos, salbutos, tacos de cochinita pibil, empanadas de Chaya. We learned about the different spices and chiles of the region.We the left the market and tried seafood tacos at El Marlin and finished with ice cream and sorbet at a new place called Pola.Great tour.
Excellent tour, I only wish we had booked it sooner. We went to the main market in Merida, our guide telling us about the sights as we walked there. We tried a variety of dishes tamales, empanadas, tacos, salbutos, panuchos plus some fruit drinks and horchata to wash it all down. Then on to a fish restaurant for ceviche and finally an ice cream shop for dessert. Our guide was very friendly and informative throughout. We were in Mexico for two weeks and if I was asked to rate my experiences I would say this tour and our visit to Uxmal were the best.
This tour was not only fun, but was also very useful and educational. I would recommend that every first time visitor to Merida go on this tour, if possible on your first day in town. Everything we tried was very delicious and the tour makes the market less intimidating.
Our guide was terrific and very knowledgeable. The market needs a good power wash so if you are squeamish there were a couple of stops that may make you hesitate. Overall, the food we tasted was very good and the experience was fun.
The Merida Street Food Walking Tour was a good experience. It introduced us to some of the local specialties and a great trip through the market showing the ingredients used in Yucatecan cooking. The selection of foods was a little limited, as was the information on the history of Merida. But our guide, Laura, was a gem: personable, cheerful, truly bilingual, and an excellent source of information about the various foods we were trying. The tour was good, but could use some improvement.
