Which foodie walking tour? Culinary school?
Hi--my husband will be accompanying me on a business trip to San Francisco in September. A few years back, I took a Chinatown foodie walking tour with my mother which we very much enjoyed. But, don't recall which one and there is more than one (e.g., Linda Lee, Wok Wiz). Any suggestions as to which one I should suggest to my husband ? Any other self-directed or group foodie tours that he should consider?
Thanks so much!
Ummm. Did I ask too many questions? I did search and didn't find an answer to my questions. Would love a response.
I think most people on the list don't have experience with the foodie tours. As far as self-directed tours, there are suggestions for mission food crawls, Ferry building tasting, chocolate tours, ice cream tour, small bit tours, dessert crawls, etc. If you can give more information about what you are looking for in a self-directed tour we could probably fill in the blanks better.
Kevin Hogan's Tapas Walk sounds like fun to me. I haven't done it yet but I was drinking in 15 Romolo when his group came in.
GraceAnn Walden's tour sounds good too. " This is the only tour that gives participants the full North Beach experience including Italian history, food knowledge and a spectacular repast at Tony's Pizza Napoletano. ... On our tour, we go behind the scenes in a focaccia bakery, a chocolatier and visit a 70-year-old butcher shop, a new shrine to St. Francis and an authentic Italian ceramic store. ... Along the way, we taste focaccia and see the ovens where it was baked; enjoy Italian cookies and coffee and Italian sausages. After lunch we go to XOX Truffles for a bag of truffles and tastes. The tour is from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. including lunch $80. Private tours weekdays for 10 or more."
