It's been said that a city's food is an extension of its soul. If this is true, then there's no better way to get to know a city than through its restaurants. Peruvian native Diego Peyon understands this, channeling his love and fascination for California's cuisine into curated food tours that offer San Francisco visitors a local's look into the city. “I want to bring people to the places that serve great food," Peyon says, "so they can have an amazing, authentic time." To that end, he has forged partnerships with a diverse selection of area eateries, giving participants a taste of the city's many different cultural traditions and culinary innovations.
Each stop on the nearly 2-mile Mission District Tour leans on local, sustainable, and organic produce. As they sample the Peruvian, Korean, Mexican, and Indian staples along the route, guests will chat with chefs and owners to get an insider's look at the city's unique food scene. All the while, the bilingual tour guide will buttress these expeditions with facts and insights about the area's cultural heritage and historic landmarks.
