Toronto in one of my favourite cities in Canada. It has culture, arts, funky neighbourhoods, cool architecture, food trucks, and an interesting history – – which ultimately led to the creation of When Pigs Fry, a pork themed food tour by Urban Adventures.
One of the things I love about going on a food tour is discovering new (to me) places to shop and eat. I am a foodie after all. Oh, who am I kidding, I am a bit of a food snob. Which is one of the reasons why I love going on food tours when I’m travelling, and when I’m at home as well. A food tour is a fabulous way to find new places to eat, and new foods to love; especially when you’re in a big city like Toronto.
Over the next few months I will be experiencing some of the food tours that are on offer in Toronto in an effort to find the best ones. As part of this little foodie project I will be writing about each of the tours here on Savoir Faire Abroad, and then in late spring I’ll be doing a comparison of all of them and recommending which ones I think are the best in the city. Starting with Savour Toronto’s Kensington Krawl Christmas food tour.
As a travelling foodie I love experiencing food in new places. In some places I lean towards street food, in others I favour gourmet. And sometimes I like to try a little of both. There are a couple ways to experience food while travelling: take a food tour (if available) that features the best of what a city has to offer, check-out an award-winning restaurant, or go in search of local specialty foods. In Mexico city I did all three.
I’m pretty sure that foodie tours are my new favourite pass time. There is just something so very perfect about exploring a city and experiencing it through local foods. Mmm… delicious! During my time in Vancouver last month I had the pleasure of taking not one, but TWO food tours – both through Vancouver Foodie Tours.
