We had a great time with Erik! He told his story very passionately and answered all our questions. The taco making part was very fun too! If you want to see a different part of the city, meet someone who knows Mexico and taco’s very well, definitely do this experience! :)

This experience was one of our favorite parts of our trip to Mérida. Erick’s knowledge of the culinary history of his community was world class. Being able to apply what we learned into creating our own handmade tortillas and tacos is something we will never forget.

We had a great evening with Erick! He is very knowledgeable about the Mexican history and of course the history of Taco and told us a lot about it. Also, he was happy to answer all the questions we had. In the end, we prepared our own Tacos, which were very delicious!

If you are interested in the food and culture of Mexico in an entertaining, fun and relaxed atmosphere, take this tour! The Tacohistory experience, hosted by Erick, takes place in one of Merida’s best Taco restaurants. Erick is incredibly knowledgeable about the history of food in Mexico, with, of course, emphasis on the taco. He starts at the beginning, the origin story of corn, also the origin story of the Mexican people. You are then on a tour de force of Mexican food, culture, history from Huitzilopochtl through the Aztec and Mayan civilizations through to Cortez, Porfirio Diaz to modern Mexico and the sometimes performative nature of tortilla making. If this sound like a dry, history lecture it is anything but. Erick is very responsive to questions and of course, you are eating almost the entire time, while Erick explains what you are eating and where it falls in the history of Mexican food culture. And then you get to try your hands at making tortillas, which are then cooked on the restaurant’s grill. I cant remember the last time I learned so much in one evening and had so much fun doing it. I feel truly enriched in my understanding of Mexican culinary history and culture. I will likely do it again when I return to Merida.

This was an amazing experience that taught us much about Mexican cuisine as well as their culture. Erick is extremely passionate and educated in both cuisine and history and made it fun and exciting to us. The tacos that we sampled were incredible and we can’t wait to try and make our own tortillas when we get home.

Erick ist cool. Er weiß einfach alles über Tortillas und Tacos und eines ist sicher: Er liebt mexikanisches Essen und seine Begeisterung ist ansteckend. Er kann toll erzählen und wir haben viel vom ihm gehört, was wir noch nie gehört hatten. Diese Entdeckung war sein Geld absolut Wert. Das Essen war dazu sehr lecker!
