Our Expert Food Tour Guides will take you on a Latin Flavors food tour through East Los Angeles that will be truly memorable in your heart and in your stomach!
Most visitors who tour Los Angeles head straight for the main attractions. The downside is that so many miss out on the wonderfully rich culture and street life happening of East Los Angeles. Join us as we veer slightly off the beaten path with our exciting East LA Latin Flavors Food & Culture Tour.
We will start the day with a piece of the finest Tres Leches Cake in all of East Los Angeles! Next, it's off to discover the most amazing freshly hand-made Tamales. Then, we will head to the bustling Mercadito for more tastings before exploring a real-deal Tortilla factory to try all kinds of salsa/guacamole dips and delicacies.
After getting all dip-a-licious we will hop on the Metro Gold Line for a short train ride to Mariachi Plaza for a sumptuous lunch of mouth-watering Goat and Pupusa. To finish the tour, we will polish off all this unbelievable food with fabulous Iced Mexican Chocolate and bakery fresh pan dulce.
All of these glorious foods are prepared from time-honored family recipes and served with the true warmth and hospitality we've come to associate with Latin Culture. For visitors and locals alike, there's a whole other side of LA just waiting to be discovered. The tour centers around Boyle Heights, with well-deserved focus on Mariachi Plaza, the grand centerpiece of the neighborhood. Palates are pleased beyond measure to enjoy a unique medley of fresh, amazing Latin flavors that have graced family tables for generations. Starting with the first tasting, guests are treated to traditional handmade foods, some of which originated south of our border over 100 years ago!
The tour concludes back at our original starting point. The food samples served are filling enough so that for most people lunch afterward is not necessary. Come join us to discover and taste the unique flavors, food, and cuisine of East Los Angeles like never before!
