Professional step-on guide, Curt – who is not only a history buff with an expertise on the evolution of Los Angeles, but also a true foodie known for his creative and memorable food adventures – leads the way on this culinary journey through L.A.’s diverse neighborhoods. On this culinary adventure we’ll enjoy tastings from these hand-picked restaurants that have brought their cooking styles and flavors to L.A. from all over the world, while Curt entertains us with noteworthy, amusing and surprising stories about L.A.’s unique history and evolving food culture. In downtown L.A.’s Chinatown, we’ll visit a Chinese restaurant and indulge in various types of Cantonese-style steamed buns and dumplings. Visit Philippe the Original, the historic landmark that was opened by Philippe Mathieu in 1908 and credited as the inventor of the French dip. We’ll bite into their famous French dip sandwich featuring thinly sliced roast beef on a slightly crackling French roll dipped into au jus – the freshly made hot mustard is optional! In the East Los Angeles neighborhood of Boyle Heights, we’ll enjoy a taco from a Mexican restaurant that is known as having the best taco in the city! Their tender meat simmers in homestyle braises and is then served on handmade corn tortillas – just like the owner’s Mexican American mother made him when he was growing up in Los Angeles. In Little Tokyo, we’ll visit a family-owned sweet shop that has been serving up their delicious mochi since 1903. We’ll “turn back the clock” when we visit a famous, old-time “soda” shop that has operated for over 100 years in the same location in Highland Park. Enjoy time browsing aisles and aisles of colas, cream sodas, root beers, sarsaparillas, lemonades and more. You’ll even get to take home an old-fashioned bottle of pop! We top off the day with included wine tasting at the San Antonio Winery, a true gem tucked away in a nondescript industrial area of Los Angeles. This family-owned Los Angeles treasure was founded more than 100 years ago by an Italian immigrant and stands as a living link to the city’s first major industry – wine making! Tasting locations and menu subject to change.
