Six Taste—a TripAdvisor Top 10 Pick for tours—leads seven distinct food tours through some of Los Angeles’s most iconic neighborhoods. These walking tours typically visit between five and eight restaurants over the course of four hours, giving guests invaluable background information on the neighborhood while allowing them to sample bites at each stop. Examples include the Thai Town tour, which explores regional Thai staples from eateries throughout East Hollywood, and the Downtown Los Angeles tour of little-known bistros throughout the city center.
Six Taste co-owner Jeff Okita succinctly described his TripAdvisor Top 10 Pick tours to the Daily Trojan in 2011, calling them "a way for people to connect to different communities through an accessible medium, which is food." During four-hour excursions, in-the-know guides walk with fellow explorers through iconic Los Angeles–area neighborhoods—including Little Tokyo and the heart of downtown—stopping into gems to sample the eatery's cuisine and learn about the area. This cultural education is paramount for Jeff, who told the Christian Science Monitor in 2010 that "we choose the restaurants based on their story and what they add to the understanding of a neighborhood, its people and its history."
Guides currently lead more than 15 tours a week through eight different neighborhoods, with most tours meeting between 9:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. In addition to the regularly scheduled excursions, the staff also leads specialty outings that focus on more adventurous cuisines, including intensely spicy dishes in Thai Town and lost seafood recipes in Atlantis.
