Saturday February 23, 2013 / 3:00pmMission North Food Tour
How was your experience?
We fully enjoyed our walking tour. We expected "tastes" of the Mission - we got a "meal" in the Mission, along with a tidbits on the Mission District culture and history. We were stuffed by the end! The guides were friendly, professional, and a pleasure to spend the afternoon with. The eateries were varied ranging from walk-up street style Chilean empanadas, to very casual Mayan tostadas, to "quick food" Indian Samosas, to fusion food including goat cheese fondue and deep fried brussel sprouts. We were told the restaurants will always change so you could do this tour more than once. In addition to restaurant visits we all picked up little treats at a local market, and enjoyed a photo stop at the Clarion Alley murals. The guides were great about accommodating food differences (one vegatarian and one vegan joined the tour). We didn't wait anywhere for our food because one guide advanced the group while the other escorted us from place to place. We are locals, but we brought a friend from out of town, and we all enjoyed things we hadn't seen before. Bring your appetite, and dress in layers, it is San Francisco, and it can be cold in the shade.
