I thought it was pretty cool. I'm from the San Francisco area and I found it very informative and you got to see parts of the city that you wouldn't have been aware of.

About San Francisco Food Safari

Chef Joseph knows San Francisco's culinary hotspots like the back of his fork-holding hand. A former food critic for the Orange County and Long Beach Blade and IN Los Angeles, the Chef draws on his edible expertise to lead tours of two of the city's most delicious neighborhoods: North Beach and the Mission District. On the first tour, patrons learn about North Beach's rich history, pay a visit to the Beat Generation's favorite coffee house, and line up for legendary focaccia. Just as the North Beach tour reveals there's more to the area than Italian cuisine, the Mission District tour goes beyond Mexican food with stops at Italian and Chinese restaurants. Samples are not included, but guests are encouraged to bring shopping bags and cash to purchase tasty wares.
