Whenever we travel, we schedule a food tour in the area. We are never disappointed but this San Francisco tour will be hard to top!
Adventures Off the Eaten Path just seemed to draw me in when I was searching online; I could tell it was not a canned trip of the tourist spots. Dan Chew (the owner), offers really unusual tours and his verbiage showed that he not only knew food, he knew the neighborhoods.
We wound up doing the Tenderloin Tour and WOW WOW WOW!!! Dan took us to literal holes in the wall, places you would never think had great food. We had Thai, Pakistani, Egyptian, Vietnamese, and I cannot remember what else. Dan knew the food, he knew how it was made and we discussed the types of ingredients that may have been used. You can tell that Dan Chew LOVES his job of sharing cuisines from the great city of San Francisco.

Dan is the best. He gave a group of about 20 of us a wonderful tour of Chinatown and introduced us to a great restaurant. We are the cast and artistic team of a local production of FLOWER DRUM SONG, and we wanted a guided walk so that we could better understand the story's history. Dan was so knowledgeable about San Francisco, its history, people, stores and restaurants. He is also fun, kind, and generous.

Outstanding food tour. A group of 5 of us went with Dan to the Tenderloin District. He customized the tour to our likes, dislikes and to how adventurous we were willing to try new and different foods. We were adventurous and had a variety of unique foods including: Thai, trendy Chinese fusion, Egyptian, Pakistani, and Vietnamese. Do not expect to eat at tourist spots, you get the authentic cuisine of the locals. Come hungry as you will get plenty of food to eat. We were so full at the end of the food tour.
