Food Tour

Posted: Updated:

WSVN -- If you've ever wanted to eat your way through Miami here's your chance.

Grace Della, Miami Culinary Tours: "Hi everyone I'm Grace from Miami Culinary Tours."

Grace Della just started the Miami Culinary Tours.

Grace Della: "You get to try eight restaurants for $59 and that's something everyone can experience."

There are two very distinct tours for those with a passion for a food one takes foodies through Little Havana .

Margie Schneider: "We got to try Cuban food all over Little Havana and it was the coolest thing."

The other tour gives you a taste of South Beach.

Grace Della: "It's a reflection of the melting pot that is South Beach. We do between five to eight stops. We try all different types of cuisines."

Both tours are on foot, so you learn some history about the area, plus walk off all those calories from your tastings.

Stephanie Strand: "I actually really enjoy that we're able to physically walk to each one of the restaurants."

During the sobe tour, you'll try some unique Cuban dishes and actually learn about the culture behind the food.

Grace to girls: "They grate it, they squeeze the water out of it (talking about yucca).

On down the road, you'll sample Peruvian ceviche with a great view of Ocean Drive, and then stop for some Italian bites at a festive restaurant on Espanola Way.

Some stops will ooze elegance and you may even get to hob-nob with some of South Beach's most celebrated chefs.

Margie Schneider: "The chef came out and spoke to us. When does that happen?"

Stephanie Strand: "My favorite spot was La Marea, where we had the snapper. You can taste the jalapeno and haberno peppers."

You'll sample an exotic juice you've never even heard of.

Grace Della: "So, it's the fruit of the cashew nut."

And the tour usually ends on a sweet note.

Angelica Rodriguez: "This is my favorite part of the trip, honestly."

No matter how long you've lived here, you'll probably visit a restaurant or try a dish that's new to you.

Kim Gates: "I've been to South Beach before, but I've never experienced some of the places here. I never even knew they existed."

You'll leave full, but you'll still have an appetite for to try more restaurants in our great city.

There are several similar culinary tours popping up around the city.
