Yum! Ok I know not the usual introduction but the thought of this food tour has my mouth absolutely salivating already. I had the opportunity to take this lunch tour and snag some delicious pictures and figured who better to share them with, but you all. And I have to admit I’m definitely planning on taking the dinner tour and The Little Havana Food Tour (available only on Saturdays) sometime in the near future.
These delicious tours are available Wednesday – Saturday for lunch or Thursday – Saturday for dinner at a flat rate of $59.00. I was so excited to be given the opportunity to take this tour but I never expected it to be as awesome as it is. It was astonishingly full after the end of the second tasting, and that’s a big shocker since I’m a foodie to the core. The tour started off at David’s Café and I have to admit I’ve never really been a fan of the place but Mirka, our tour guide totally washed that away by serving us what David’s Café calls a slider (basically a steak sandwich) with Fried Plantains “mariquitas” and it was delish; she followed that restaurant with a little intro into the Art Deco buildings stopping by The Art Deco Welcome Center where I work, to explain the importance of the MDPL and how the Art Deco buildings were saved.
Our next stop was Bice Cafe at the Hotel Victor and oh man was that great. The chef actually came out to introduce the meal and explain how it was made… I was so full I could barely move, but that was definitely not the end of our food stops. As we continued walking along the way we made it to a small little bakery called Charlotte’s and got a taste of Argentina and before we knew it we were indulging our taste buds with Cevechery’s Peruvian Papa Rellenas and Italian Gelato! If I had to recommend a food tour this would definitely be on the top of my list.
So if you’re looking for a taste of great food, stop by The Art Deco Welcome Center and buy your tickets now! I guarantee you’ll love it. I know I did!
