Private Highlights of
All the Yummy Details
This fascinating walking tour explores the incredibly popular neighborhood
in South Philly that's booming with cutting-edge shops and ambitious
restaurants that would rather set trends than follow them. The Highlights
of East Passyunk tour is the best place to get the most up-to-date scoop on
all of the openings and closings in this foodie mecca that Food and Wine
Magazine named one of the 10 best foodie streets in America. In case
you weren't quite impressed yet, twelve out of the top 50 restaurants
on Philadelphia Magazine and Foobooz's latest edition of The 50 Best
Restaurants in Philadelphia are on East Passyunk Ave, and we'll show
you where to find them.
This two-hour afternoon tour demystifies the places that have put East
Passyunk on the map and have catapulted this quaint street from its
humble beginnings into the epicenter of the city's culinary scene. We'll
start at one end of the Avenue and make our way past many of the local highlights, share stories of the restaurateurs, their restaurants and bars. Along the way, we'll check out iconic landmarks and murals.
We'll be stopping into the following great places to make your mouth happy:
The Bottle Shop to enjoy a generous portion of a locally-brewed, Belgian Tripel
Birra to enjoy one of their most popular brick oven pizzas: the pear & gruyere pizza
Barcelona Wine Bar to dig into empanadas and patatas bravas (salsa- and garlic aioli-topped potatoes)
At Sate Kampar, Semifinalist for the 2017 "Best New Restaurant in America" by the James Beard Foundation, you'll enjoy two popular Malaysian treats -- skewers of grilled tofu with Indonesian seasonings (Sate) and Pulled Tea (Teh Tarik). Not only will you taste the tea, but you'll see it being pulled.
