Harlem doesn't have one signature food. Instead, it has signature foods, like collard greens, rugelach, and peanut-butter stew. On Taste of Harlem Food and Cultural Tours' historical food tour, participants can sample all of these, at six stops that feature soul food, traditional African food, and Caribbean cuisine. Other tours complement the food one, focusing on other aspects of Harlem. The Sunday morning gospel tour, for instance, focuses on Harlem's traditional music, and the architecture tour highlights some of the area's most historic buildings, after a hearty breakfast removes all temptation for guests to gnaw on tasty-looking wall sconces.
