Taste and Pleasure in Mexico City

Learn about the land of hidden corners, with quiet nooks where you can steal a kiss.

Throughout history, taste and pleasure have been willing and ready bedmates. Eating and sex are two of our most primal urges, and it’s only natural that they sometimes get a little mixed up. Great food, shared with a great person, can often lead to a great night between the sheets. And who are we to argue?

So, when you two are looking to spice things up—in and outside the bedroom—there’s no better place to explore than the intoxicating streets of Mexico City.

“Mexico City is the land of hidden corners, filled with quiet nooks where you can steal a kiss and share bites of a piping hot churro.”

Unexpected Mexico City

First, let us set the scene: prepare for the unexpected when it comes to a trip to Mexico City.

Mexico City is a bustling metropolis with a population of over 21 million people. With a crowd like that—surpassing New York City in size and density—you might assume that intimate moments are hard to find. But that’s just not true. Mexico City is the land of hidden corners, filled with quiet nooks where you can steal a kiss and share bites of a piping hot churro.

Finding spots to rest and connect with your love have an added benefit…they’ll help you catch your breath. At 7,300 feet above sea level, you may find yourself feeling like your head is in the clouds. Or maybe it is (wink)?

Maybe it’s a bit of both…

The OG of Street Food

While street food has slowly comes into its own in the United States, the people of Mexico have been perfecting the art for hundreds of years. When the Spanish arrived in Mexico in the 1500s, they reportedly were impressed by the pre-made dishes served at markets and street stalls.

Today, you could spend an entire day chasing the best street food in Mexico City. Tacos al pastor, tamales, and tlacoyos (a torpedo-shaped pocket of masa stuffed with beans and cheese) are some of the local favorites, washed down with a bitter cup of Mexican coffee.

After all that eating with your hands, and feeding each other spicy bites as the city swirls around you, you might decide that the very best place for dessert is in your hotel room…

“Dressing up for a night out is in an art form in Mexico City, and sensuality flows through the streets once the sun goes down.”

Modern Culinary Aphrodisia

Mexico City may be steeped in history, but it’s also an uber-modern metropolis filled with flavors from around the globe. Just like you wouldn’t expect only to find Manhattan clam chowder and bagels in New York, you won’t find just Mexican food in Mexico City.

Mexico City is known for its innovative chefs, dining experiences that range from almost-impossibly elegant to intimately romantic, and for its glamour. Dressing up for a night out is in an art form in Mexico City, and sensuality flows through the streets once the sun goes down.

Tap into the vibe with a night of culinary delights. Get ready slowly, savoring the anticipation of the evening ahead. Share a bottle of wine at the restaurant. Get lost in the taste of your dish, and let the flavors heighten your senses.

Enjoy the beautiful agony of waiting for what’s next…

“Let a trip to Mexico City be just the beginning of your heightened connection with taste and pleasure.”

Spicy Beginnings

Let a trip to Mexico City be just the beginning of your heightened connection with taste and pleasure. At home, ry that new restaurant in your neighborhood. Seek out fresh churros to remind you of that secluded courtyard you slipped into with your love. Cook a meal together at home and eat over a candlelit table.

Bring food to bed, just to see if you like it.

Get spicy. Get busy. Vamos pues!
