Most visitors who tour Los Angeles head straight for the main attractions. The downside is that so many miss out on the wonderfully rich culture and street life happening over in East LA. Join us as we veer slightly off the beaten track with our exciting East LA Latin Flavors Food & Culture Tour. Start the day with delicious coffee and fresh baked goods in one of LA's most interesting settings. Then hop on the Metro Gold Line for a short train ride to discover the most amazing freshly hand-made Tamales. Then head to the bustling open air market before exploring a real-deal Tortilla factory to try all kinds of salsa/guacamole dips and delicacies. A quick hop back on the Metro Gold Line train drops us off at Mariachi Plaza for a sumptuous lunch of mouth-watering Goat and Pupusa. Polish all this unbelievable food off with fabulous iced Mexican Chocolate and bakery fresh pan dulce.
All of these glorious foods are prepared from time-honored family recipes and served with the true warmth and hospitality we've come to associate with Latin Culture. For visitors and natives alike, there's a whole other side of LA just waiting to be discovered, so join us on our new East LA Latin Flavors food tour.
