THE RENDEZVOUS POINT
Our meeting spot is on outside the entrance to Gran Hotel in Centro Histórico.
EAT. Eat. REPEAT.
Our roving supper club will visit our favorite spots in Mexico City’s unrivaled curbside culinary scene, eating our way through the best of the city’s famed street food. We’ll visit a traditional mercado where we’ll taste seasonal local fruit and explore Mexico’s diverse
ingredients. We’ll also hit two of the city’s most iconic sweet shops for some snacking on pan dulce and traditional Mexican sweets. Somewhere in between, we’ll stop for pulque, an ancient beverage made from fermented agave sap, at a 106-year-old pulqueria.
ALL GOOD THINGS MUST COME TO AN END
With full bellies we’ll end the outing at La Alameda, a beautiful downtown park. There, you can grab an UBER, hop on the metro, or spend the rest of your afternoon exploring CDMX’s Centro Historico. Bellas Artes, where murals by Mexico’s master painters Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, José Clemente Orozco + Rufino Tamayo are housed, is at the east end of the La Alameda. Mexico City’s Zocalo, the ruins of Tenochtitlan, and the National Palace, which has a must see Diego Rivera mural, are a short 10 minute walk away.
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
The outings last 3.5 hours. Bring comfortable shoes, as there's a lot of walking involved. There's also a ton of food, so it's a good idea to skip breakfast! Mexico City’s traffic can be a nightmare of the best of days. We strongly encourage people to use public transportation. The Centro neighborhood is regularly the site of parades, demonstrations, events, etc, so please plan accordingly to arrive on time. The summer months are Mexico City’s rainy season. While the rain normally starts in the late afternoon, well after our outings are through, CTH’s ‘Insiders Guide to Mexico CIty’s Merced Market’ is rain or shine, so be prepare
THE CTH WAY
A blogger once described Club Tengo Hambre outings this way: 'It felt like very cool friends were showing us around their town.' That's what CTH is all about. We are a roving supper club, not a food tour. Our trips are small, intimate gatherings. Our aim is to celebrate both the social aspect of food in bringing people together and the vibrant street food scene that makes Mexico’s capital city the best place in the world for street food. We want you to bring your friends + make new ones.
Club Tengo Hambre’s outings were, quite literally, decades in the making. Years of food intel went into its curation. Our menu focuses solely on the best of Mexico City’s regional street cuisine.
