The city’s top chefs—who are just as interested in showcasing Houston’s mom and pop restaurants as their own—continue their mission to introduce locals and visitors alike to Houston’s culinary diversity by showing them where they eat on their days off. Two types of tours are available including chef-led tours and weekly walking tours. The Houston Culinary Tours give participants intimate knowledge about the city and its chefs: unexplored neighborhoods, undiscovered restaurants; and markets that contribute to the locally-driven menus of each chef.
The chef-led tours, limited to 16 participants, are $180 per person, which includes tastings at each stop, complimentary local Saint Arnold's beverages, limo-bus transportation and gift bag. Ticket proceeds benefit Foodways Texas. All tours begin and end at Central Market.
Weekly three-hour walking food tours are also available in neighborhoods like Montrose and Downtown. Discover the evolution of the area's history architecture and culture, while stopping at a number of establishments to enjoy a variety of food and drink.
