When I saw a recent article on Bungalower.com, I had to do more research and find out what these Foodie Tours were all about. The concept is really unique. Think pub crawl-ish, but super posh and at restaurants that I’m sure have been on your list since they’ve opened. More than a crawl, you get to really spend time at each venue, getting a sense of the vibe, tasting their delicious foods and trying signature cocktails. The idea is you tour 3 top rated Orlando restaurants that focus on farm to table dishes and source from local farms. Each venue gives you time to chat with the chef and a bartender, as well. You meet at the first location, try their spread and then hop into pre-coordinated transportation to transport to the next experience.
This project is the brainchild of Katie Bean, a long time Orlando resident. She explains on the website, “I’ve always had a hard time deciding where I want to go and what I want to eat. All my life, it’s been a daily struggle for me, especially the older I’ve gotten as I know what I like now more than ever. One day I had a thought to create something similar to a pub-crawl, but for foodies – and not just any foodie nor just any typical crawl. I wanted this “foodie crawl” to be the ultimate experience with VIP treatment.” I don’t know about you, but I have the hardest time deciding where to go too! My husband knows this song and dance from me all too well. So Katie set out to create a way to expose us to these great restaurants in small group settings.
The tours aren’t just limited to this evening idea. You can also go on a Vegetarian tour, a brunch tour or even create a custom tour. It seems like you can make these tours what you really want! I hope you’ll try this novel idea soon. I know I will be booking my tour for a date night soon!
