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 new culinary journey through L.A.’s diverse neighborhoods. We’ll enjoy tastings from these hand-picked ethnic restaurants that have brought their cooking styles and flavors to L.A. from all over the world. We begin in downtown L.A.’s Chinatown where we will indulge in the Cantonese style of food including various types of steamed buns and dumplings. We continue to Philippe the Original, an L.A. icon that opened in 1908 and has been at its current location on the edge of Chinatown since 1951. Philippe’s “official” version of the legend says the French Dip sandwich was born when its French owner, Philippe Mathieu, accidentally dropped a French roll into a roasting pan filled with drippings, and the policeman who ordered the sandwich agreed to eat it anyway. Enjoy an included French dip sandwich featuring thinly sliced roast beef on a slightly crackling French roll (with their freshly made, famous hot mustard available on the side). 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 also 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 an 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 100 years old 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.
