So many of my travel memories revolve around great meals and
â€œgridâ€ and discover the real taste of the city.
So I was excited when I discovered Vallarta
Food Tours which promised that I could â€œeat like a localâ€ during a 3 hour tour of off-the-beaten tourist path
Vallarta Food Tours
was founded by Lindsay Prime Mayer,
an American expat living in
who was inspired by a similar tour
she took on vacation in
the local culinary experience to visitors.
We started our tour
with a mole trio (which thankfully is a sauce, not a small woodland
creature) and it was so delicious that my strategy of pacing myself went right
out the window. Over the next 3 hours we
strolled through the city, led by our funny and friendly guide â€œLoboâ€ learning
about Vallarta history and stopping
to eat along the way.
We tried birria tacos,
coconut water opened by machete in
front of our eyes, tortillas hot off
the press, a trio of rich soups,
fresh ceviche, sweets from a
traditional Mexican candy store and much more.
Not only was everything really tasty but Lobo explained to us about the
traditions and making of everything we sampled.
By the end of the tour, I was totally fullâ€¦.not only of
great food but of a great understanding of the local culture, heritage and
Food Tours is definitely a great way to meet and eat a city.
