Chicago Food Tours?

TrishUntrapped Mar 16, 2012 05:01 PM

On my trip in June I'm thinking of going on one of the food tours. It seems like a fun way to get a glimpse of the city, do a little walking through a neighborhood with a tour guide, learn some things, oh yeah and grab a few bites of food!

Of the three tours I reviewed here, The Near North one seems most like my style.

Food stops include:

Lou Malnati's (Good, I wanted to sample Chicago pizza, just a bite, so this would work for me
)The Spice House (Like spices)
Delightful Pastries
Ashkenaz Deli
Old Town Oil (Like interesting olive oils)
Tea Gschwendner (Gesundheit)
The Fudge Pot

I'm not looking for the tour with the most food, just things I would enjoy trying. Anyone done it, what did you think?

    Looks like there's been a previous discussion about these tours here:

      Thanks for that link Hehe. Because I've never been to Chicago I thought this might not only be a good way to sample a few food items, but the tour itself would be a nice low key introduction to the city. So it's still a consideration on my list.
