Old Pasadena Food Tasting Walking Tour
Experience the history, architecture and folklore of Old Pasadena
Colorful alleys and secret thru-ways spice up our walk as we seek out spectacular ethnic eateries and sweetstuff havens in historic Old Pasadena. Enjoy all the fascinating stories behind the foods when you explore this historic district, once just a sunny haven of colorful orange groves.
Here's what you can expect on the Old Pasadena Food Tour:
- Cafes and restaurants specializing in world cuisine (Middle Eastern, Asian, Peruvian, Oaxacan)
- An authentic Italian gelato counter
- A tea bar and emporium
- An exquisite chocolatier
- An olive oil specialty store
- A handmade soap kitchen.
Whenever possible, we'll be met and hosted by our special merchants who proudly share their incredible offerings with us. The tour concludes back at our original starting point. The food samples along the way are filling enough so that for most people lunch or dinner afterward is not necessary.
