An Adventure For Your Taste Buds

Many urban cities are such eclectic places; always something interesting around every corner.  Each neighborhood has its own personality, nooks, & specialties.

So one of my goals for this past year is to discover more about a city in my own back yard… San Francisco. I have visited all the tourist areas over the years. Many of my  trips end up at  the same places; Fisherman’s Wharf, Coit Tower, Lombard Street, Union Square, and the Cable Cars and I always fun, ate great food, took lots of photos and always found the visit adventurous.   And I just wanted more….

I decided to start with something I knew I would love…Food.

A friend suggested I check into a company that specializes in taking people on walking food tours in San Francisco.  What a concept; a win, win…eating and exercise in one trip, score!

My search began on Google of course and the one that caught my eye was “Chris Milano’s Foodie Adventures”.

The company had great ratings and offered several choices of tours in neighborhood’s I had not explored before. I immediately contacted the family to join me and book our first tour “The Mission”.  I had no idea what to expect but after checking out the reviews and the website I discovered that the host definitely was the expert on the local foods, as well as, the neighborhoo_dsc0346ds.   I could tell we were in for discovery and treats.

  • Rule number one…arrive hungry….it is a food marathon in savory and sweet delights.
  • Rule number two…wear comfortable shoes and bring a bag…for the left overs or purchases.
  • And for me Rule number three, bring the camera….I would be amiss not to chronicle this fun exploration.

Our meeting was scheduled that Saturday at Chinese Food and Donuts.


Having never been in this neighborhood the name along intrigued me. That is where our adventure began…we did not eat at this location but only met at this interesting spot.  We were greeted by our host, yes the founder and tour guide Chris Milano.


Charming and full of great information to start our 3-hour food feast.

The tour was so informative, full of history, diverse commerce, hot spot for nightlife, and colorful and creative neighborhood pride and most importantly delicious food I would have never experienced had I not done this tour.
