On this LA tour, you’ll venture off the beaten path into some of Los Angeles most ethnic enclaves, where locals live as though they’ve never left home. Signs in foreign languages, traditional snack shops, and ethnic markets line these neighborhood streets, making each visit an epic adventure you won't be forgetting in a hurry! To kick off this food tour, you'll learn how these enclaves came about, what makes them unique, and where to find some of the city’s best hidden ethnic cuisine. We’ll enjoy unique and delicious tastings in markets, restaurants, bakeries, and hole-in-the-wall eateries, including a variety of sweet and savory foods. As we walk and ride the metro through the neighborhoods, you’ll get to observe life in some of LA’s most vibrant areas, highlighting traditional homes, architecture, and cultural hotspots. From Robert F. Kennedy’s assassination site to Korean karaoke bars, this cultural tour introduces you to the city’s lesser-known and off-beat sectors, where you’re sure to discover a different side to this legendary city. During the course of this LA food tour we’ll enjoy enough food for a whole meal, so please come with an appetite!
