Old Town Pasadena is filled with so many wonderful restaurants that it’s hard to pick just one place. Melting Pot Food Tours has introduced a walking tour of Old Town Pasadena that not only solves your dilemma, but also gives you some history of the city and an introduction to the owners of the cafes and eateries that populate the area.
First you buy tickets and then you are given all the details of the tour, including the meeting point–which is also where the tour concludes. According to the company’s website, a tour includes:
o Cafes and restaurants specializing in world cuisine (Middle Eastern, Asian, Peruvian, Oaxacan)
o An authentic Italian gelato counter
o A tranquil tea bar and shop filled with teas from around the world
o An exquisite chocolatier
o A mini-food emporium featuring fine cheeses and other delicacies
o A handmade soap kitchen.
The tours can be a great way to try new places, experience old favorites and even discover hidden gems. In the event that you have out of town guests, the tour sounds like a great way for visitors to get a taste of the many ethnic foods and high-end shops that make our city a delicious place to live.
Tickets for adults are $75 and $50 for kids, not including gratuity. The tour includes a total of nine stops filled with savory and sweet delights. Needless to say, be sure to show up with an empty stomach and your walking shoes.
