Frequently Asked Questions about Chinatown Food Tours
Q. How do I book a tour?
A. Send me an email with your number of guests and a few dates/times that work for you and we will decide on a mutually agreeable time- this will typically be a weekend or in the evening M-F as I also have a full time job.
Q. What can I expect on the tour?
A. We will walk around Chinatown sampling food from several different places. We will eat some of our food streetside and some stops will be at sit down restaurants.
(during COVID, I will not be joining during the sit down portion, I will advise you on menu items before I depart)
Q. Is the tour given rain or shine?
A. As we do not walk far, the tour can be done in all weather depending on your comfort level.

Q. What type of restaurants do we go to?
A. We will go to my favorite hidden gems. I pick restaurants based on the most authentic and delicious flavors. It is important to me to support small businesses so I do not receive kickbacks and I always leave tips for the staff.
