While I was on a six-hour historical tour my stomach began to grumble as the guide pointed out some delicious food spots. It was then that I had an “aha moment.” I decided to include my favorite food places on a history and culture walking tour, so folks wouldn’t be hungry while discovering the city!

I want my tours to tell the story of the neighborhood through its food and the people who prepare it. The rest, as they say, is history. I've been giving tours for over 7 years in multiple cities. So when you join one of my tours, you can rest assured you'll be in expert hands as you taste your way around the city!

Where you'll be

Flavorful food specialties are served from five of the following places (subject to change). We'll stop at a local bakery crafting unbelievably light and buttery pork buns, a shop serving traditional Shanghai-style cuisine, a Hong Kong dim sum spot, the best traditional Mandarin Szechuan in San Francisco, and a stop for the tastiest egg tart around! Between food stops, we'll be visiting local, cultural, and historically significant locations.

Wonderful way for my wife and and I to learn out new city. We had heard so much about Chinatown but we're a little intimidated. This tour helped us avoid the tourist traps and enjoy a special and intimate peak into such a historic and tasty neighborhood.
