Private Ethnic Eats
All The Yummy Details
Mention the words “South Philly” and almost everyone immediately pictures the
Italian Market. Yet, nestled in and around the market is a treasure trove of
outstanding Asian culinary delights! Treat your taste buds to an exotic journey
that will open your eyes to these rich flavors and vibrant cultures. Yes, the food
is fantastic, but the highlight for many guests is the visit to the Buddhist temple.
This tour is as great for first-time visitors to the neighborhood as it is for those
who think they know the Italian Market inside-out!
This 3-hour adventure is serving up enough delicious (not scary) food for lunch,
fascinating insight into Vietnamese, Thai, Indonesian, and Indian food traditions,
and a generous side of humor. Tour guides are well-versed in many international food traditions.
During your enlightening and delicious adventure, you'll visit:
A Thai restaurant to enjoy a hearty sampling of two delicious Thai appetizers in the lavishly decorated dining room.
A Buddhist temple to see its elaborate and ornate interior. There, we'll share some fascinating facts about the symbolism and meaning of ceremonial items. This is a rare opportunity you won't want to miss.

One of the area's best Indian restaurants to enjoy 2 fantastic appetizers unlike anything you've tasted.
