$54.95 for an Eastside Culinary Tour for Two ($109.90 Value)
The new Famous & Secret Eastside Food Tour explores a part of Savannah that’s less frequently plumbed by tourists. The first stop may well be the most famous: The Pirates’ House, a seafood shack open since 1753. The tour will proceed through five more spots, racking up enough small bites for a very hearty lunch. From an 18th-century bed-and-breakfast to a back-alley barbecue to a take on Asian street food, guests will get to sample dishes in the vein of shrimp skewers, pit-smoked pork, and gourmet pralines. Vegetarian options are available at most locations.
Savannah Taste Experience
Stu and Donald Card didn’t always have time to meander down low-country roads, stopping to snack on barbecue and pralines and chat with the local bullfrogs. One brother was a partner at a national law firm, the other a media coordinator for NFL championships and international sporting events. But they found that something was missing from their fast-paced careers—something delicious. Deciding to make culinary pleasure their business, they founded tour company Savannah Taste Experience on a tripod of family, food, and friends. Their flagship tour showcases Savannah’s unique contributions to the culinary world—such as shrimp and grits, fried oysters, and the gourmet honeys of the Savannah Bee Company—through the town’s historic squares, while other routes travel off the beaten path to favorite local hangouts.
