Chicago Foodways Tours reviews
Phyllis did an outstanding job, I highly recommend this company! I hired her to do a customized tour for a special occasion and, wow, did she come through. She was incredibly easy to work with... more »
Had a great time on the Argyle and Andersonville Food Tour. Phyllis was an excellent tour guide. The food was wonderful and the history was very interesting! more »
This tour is a fascinating combination of American diversity and Chicago's history with food that perfectly complements the story. Phyllis took us through Vietnamese, Swedish, and Middle Eastern neighborhoods, explaining their rich history and giving us little "tastes" all along the way. I was raised in a Vietnamese rich culture and the food was surprisingly better than I'd ever had. My wife and I thought it to be an exceptional value because although it was labeled as a 'tasting' we didn't eat the rest of the day! I also discovered a new sandwich I love - Banh Mi sandwich. I can't wait to eat more of them! :) Phyllis has obviously done a great deal of research and has honed her craft well. I can't recommend this tour enough. It has it all, education, inside/unique knowledge, passion, and delicious cuisine.
This is a fantastic tour. We sampled a diverse selection of restaurants in the neighborhood. The food was excellent and the portions were filling without weighing us down for the walk. We were pleasantly surprised by the local history Phyllis shared about the area. Thanks for a marvelous afternoon.
