Saturday March 20, 2010 / 2:30pmSix Taste Downtown LA Food Tour
How was your experience?
I attended Saturday March 20th. Absolutely wonderful event! Ben had his hands full with our large group of 15, but he didn't break a sweat!. Ben is very pleasant, and knowledgeable of each restaurant and historical sites around the Downtown area. Two thumbs up Ben! You're awesome! Now on to the food. My goodness, I was STUFFED! Our first stop was Lost Soul, and I see why they call it that, because it's tucked away in an alley! I would have never found it on my own. The Pan De Sal bread was soooo good, and the Ube shake was delicious. It tastes like a cookies n cream shake to me. I was a little nervous about it when Ben first described it to us as being made with a purple yam. I'm not a real shake person, but since I was on a tasting tour, it would have been silly not to taste the shake right?? I was happy I did. Our next stop was Syrup Desserts. Again, I raised an eyebrow at the raspberry brie grilled cheese upon description. But it turned out to be my favorite. From there we ventured over to Mac n Cheeza...a cheese lovers dream! The entire menu is different variations of macaroni n cheese, yummy! It was also here where we had the pleasure of meeting Jeff (one of the owners of Six Taste). Soi 7 was our next stop. The veggie pad thai and crying tiger are to die for...seriously! Last stop, Ciuiadad. I was too full to enjoy the empanades. Just a bite of each was all I could do. Oh and just so you know, I loved the raspberry grilled cheese so much, I got up Sunday morning and drove back downtown to get one! I'm going to sign up for the next one I can get a hold of. Come hungry! You will leave stuffed! Thank God for the walks in between. Wear comfy shoes, and bring a light jacket or something, since the tour ends around 5:30, it can cool down a tad bit. I would recommend this tour and any others in the Six Taste family, to everyone I know. Great food, great tour, great people, great event!
