Berkeley is known for many things and now we can count food as one of them! Our amazing guide, Henry educated us on the cultural and culinary significance of many of the places that we visited and walked by along this tour. Not to mention, sampling DELICIOUS treats like pastrami sandwiches (probably, the best I've ever had!), pizza, crispy potato puffs, pork sandwiches, soups, chocolates as well as refreshing juices, & fresh coffee! A great time with wonderful food! What better way to spend an afternoon?

We had a blast exploring the Temescal area of Oakland today. Rebecca was knowledgeable, funny, and responsive to our group. This was my first food tour, but it won’t be my last. I want to explore the SF Ferry Building with Rebecca next!
