About the event

DESCRIPTION

Ever hear the phrase "the eyes are a window unto the soul"? Well, we firmly believe that food, particularly every day food, serves as the window unto the soul of a city. Join us for a tasty and engaging culinary tour of Philadelphia. From century plus old bakeries, to fish and cheesemongers, to family run butcher shops, to Michelin starred and James Beard Award winning street food, to the oldest public market still operating in the entire United States, Philadelphia proudly serves foodies, chefs, and everyone in between from near and far. 

This is a walking and eating tour of the city. We will purchase small items to taste or larger items to share with the group at several tops, while at others it will be up to you to purchase anything you might want to taste. We happily can cater to individual preferences but please note this is not a kosher, vegeterian, or vegan friendly tour. We respect everyone's palettes equally, but this is designed for the omnivores of the universe!

Part of the cost of the tour is to cover the expense of purchasing items for all participants to try. You do not have to participate and you do not need to purchase anything, though we highly recommend coming hungry and with an open mind and a ready mouth! 

We will provide utensils, napkins, plates, wipes, sanitzier, and other necessary items but please note a lot of stops will require us eating on the streets and/or with our hands!

This tour features treats and eats from many different ethnicities and cultures including German, Italian, Mexican, Asian, classic American, and local Philadelphian kitchens.
