What is The Chili Experience?

It is a culinary and cultural experience which mixes food, drinks, history, and aromas, turning into the ideal welcome to the traveler coming to Mexico City looking for unconventional experiences. It is the perfect combination between a food walking tour in one of the most beautiful traditional markets in the city, and a gastronomical workshop focused in one of the most important elements in Mexican cuisine, chili.

The tour continues in “La Flor de Jamaica” store to experience the gastronomic workshop in a private specialized studio. Taking as its main axis chili and spicy products, the visitors live a unique experience of flavors, colors, and aromas, in which they will taste dishes that will gradually make them know the history and the mixed cultural background that has resulted in Mexican gastronomy as we know it today.

There, you will make your own salsa in the traditional way; you will taste one special kind of mezcal; will learn to taste and combine chili powders, and will try an exquisite dessert with a special mix of sweet and chili that can only be found in Mexico City. 

What to do?

The adventure begins with the visit to the “Mercado de Jamaica”, one of the largest markets of Mexico City. Its history dates from the times of the Aztec City, Tenochtitlán. Visitors will be fascinated by its size, its colorful flowers, the variety of fruits and the bustle inside because of the typical trade. Let yourself be guided by someone who has lived immersed in this traditional public market environment for 25 years.

The Chili Experience is amazing due to its friendly environment and the local guide who has lived and experienced how the local lifestyle in the “Mercado de Jamaica” is.
