Let us guide you through the cultural richness that chili brings to our society and gastronomy,
bringing together the best of a walking tour and a workshop within our speakeasy.

It is an experience suitable for everyone, even those who are not familiar with chili, since our focus is on sharing the cultural richness of our gastronomy, and each person is free to consume spicy or not and decide at all times in which quantity, just like in any mexican restaurant.

What we are going to do?

We will meet at the back of the Jamaica Market and have an introduction of the history of the neighborhood, and why it is so important in Mexico City.

Then we will have a walking tour inside the market, so you can see it through our eyes. Three generations living and working here have given to us the real spirit and energy that are experienced here. 

Feel welcome in our familiar store, you will learn about its history of more than 60 years, and we will show you the way to enter our speakeasy, where we will receive you with mixology and teach you how to make a real Mexican salsa as spicy or not as you decide.

We will try your freshly made salsa and offer you a tasting menu based on the main ingredients of our gastronomy with which you can experience the real flavors of Mexico and understand more about our food and society. 

After this tasting you will know much more about Mexico, its people and its food. 

Some quick notes to know

- Closed shoes.

- No flashy or expensive jewelry

Alcohol

Alcohol is only offered to participants of legal age.

Food Restrictions

We can design special menu according to your needs, please let us know at the moment you book.

Food Quantity

The amount of food offered is enough to be considered a complete meal, so it is not advisable to reserve a restaurant immediately after it.

This is the experience for those who want to immerse themselves in the eating habits of Mexicans in order to understand why we eat the way we eat.

If you are interested in learning about food and its place in mexican culture, this experiencia delivers above and beyond. Fernando is knowledgable and passionate about the subject. Besides the world class educational component, the food is some of the best we've had in Cdmx.

This experience was incredible, I feel like I learned so much and it was a complete highlight of my trip. Fernando was so passionate about the culture and the people of the market, and really gave us an authentic mexican experience. The food was incredible, I will be thinking about the mole all the way back to London.

We greatly enjoyed this experience and highly recommend it. Fernando knows so much about chilis and more, plus he is just a really nice guy to hang out with and learn from. Delicious food, including of course the salsa we made. Enjoyed every minute!
