Insightful and educational visits to restaurants, sweet shops, and markets - and left eating more great food than I could ever imagined. Her follow-up post adventure was excellent as well. She followed up with a packet of useful information and resources.

A group of foodie friends were treated to a fabulous walk through the Asian shops and restaurants located along Broadway and Argyle streets. Rebecca was attentive to our individual interests and skillfully guided us through tastings, introductions to Thai, Vietnamese and Korean products and lunch. We were also treated to wonderful stories about restaurant owners and neighborhood history. It's clear... More

It was so neat to have a guide as to what we were seeing and tasting. Very insightful and totally worthwhile! Rebecca Wheeler is personable, knowledgeable and well-versed in the food and neighborhood she took us through. Take her... More

I have been on a variety of food tours and this is one of the best! Rebecca does a great job of incorporating the history of the Devon St. area, culinary traditions, use of spices and cooking techniques into a tasty and informative afternoon. Samples were plentiful, unique (in a very good way!) and delicious. All of the shop keepers... More

Thanks so much for a delicious and super informative food tour of Devon Ave in Chicago. We all enjoyed the diversity of the places you chose to bring us and savored each delicious bite through out the tour.

Great tour, friendly, knowledgeable guide, delicious and authentic food. She'll point out places that you hadn't considered. Helpful info on local markets so you have some confidence to go there the next time on your own. Highly recommend!

Excellent private Vietnamese walking food tour for Chicago residents or out-of-towners. Rebecca is so knowledgable about the local history and restaurants. The food at each stop was better than the next and included generous samples of flavorful authentic dishes. We tried foods that we never would have known to order without Rebecca's guidance. A tour with Rebecca is highly recommended,... More

I'm a resident of Chicago for 20+ years, have been to Devon Ave. before, and I still learned a TON on this tour. What a treat! I can't wait to bring family members and friends from out of town. Rebecca includes history of the neighborhood in addition to samples of the delicious food and culinary insight into Indian cooking, so... More

I've been to Chicago's Chinatown many times but this tour really opened up my eyes to not only great dishes at great restaurants but Chinatown's compelling history and architecture.

What a fantastic time!! Rebecca was so knowledgeable about not only the current restaurants and markets, but also the history of the neighborhood. We eat Asian food a lot but it was fun to have Rebecca, who is a chef herself, lead us to new and exciting dishes we've never had. She also took us to a local market and... More
