Best Food Walking Tour, August 2013
While our city makes it possible to get tastes of the world, let's face it: There are some restaurants where a chaperon—or just a translator—would be beneficial. On the Ethnic Neighborhoods Food & Culture Tour hosted by Urban Adventures, Summer Davis guides as many as 12 people at a time on a stroll through Koreatown as well as Little Armenia and Thai Town. The four-hour excursion includes generous samples (baklava! barbecue!) at half a dozen supermarkets, bakeries, and restaurants, so pace yourself. Davis not only shares her knowledge about the diverse cuisines, but she explores the history of the enclaves, right down to the architecture.
