Get there on time so others won't have to wait for you. Wear comfortable shoes to walk. The meeting spot is at the clock tower, but there are two of them so make sure you are at the correct one. Enjoy the food and stories from the guide!

From Our Editors

Lisa and Diane Scalia have dedicated their lives to food. After spending years in fields like catering, cooking, and food writing, the sisters and Los Angeles-area natives decided to use their passion for food as a way to help others learn more about the city. That inspiration was the brainchild for their Melting Pot Food Tours, which offer educational outings to independent eateries that demonstrate the city's cultural range. Or as Lisa told the Los Angeles Times, "[Diane and I] strongly believe that small, family-owned businesses give character, charm, and depth to a neighborhood."

The walking tours explore many stops across the city, including the area's Original Farmers Market, Old Pasadena, East LA/Boyle Heights and Thai Town. Groups have the opportunity to try small samples at most stops, which can include farm-fresh produce, handmade tamales, Italian gelato, and other multiethnic eats depending on the neighborhood. While walking between destinations, the guides regale groups with stories and bits of folklore that provide insight into neighborhood history and gossip about what's the most scandalous vegetable in the culinary world right now.
