Avital Food Tours

Our walking food tours are built by locals for locals. Our goal is that someone who lives in the Mission comes on our Mission Food Tour and learns something about her own neighborhood – exploring her own backyard through curious eyes.
We take you back in kitchens, spend time chatting with chefs and restaurant owners, and create unique food and alcohol pairings – and above all tell you the stories of the people behind the food.
