8 couples started at Soubo with our tour guide Brian
Pork rinds, Sweet Potato Beignets and Boudin balls. Finished with a Sazerac. Best part of tour
Dropped by the Pepper Palace for hot sauce samples. Not sure why this stop was a part of a food tour. Next stop was Leah’s Pralines. We each got an individual wrapped Praline and a sample of bacon brittle. Both yummy. We then walked to Bourbon O bar for a to-go- cup of Roffignac. This was a awful drink and I think everyone threw it away. Side note: we were staying at the Bourbon Orleans hotel and this wS the worse bar. We finally made it to Nola PoBoys. We had a catfish PoBoy which as good and a muffuletta which as not. Better at the Napoleon House and best at Central Grocery. Little more walking to Tajugue for brisket and a grasshopper. This was a stand up bar that was crowded. Finally to Tableau for a French 75 and Gumbo. Gumbo was good but again I had much better in New Orleans. Drink was another that was not enjoyed by the group
I know you can not please everyone but there are better drinks in NOLA like the Hurricane,the Vieux Carre’ and Milk Punch to name a few

Overall we enjoyed the tour guide and the company. We enjoy food tours in very state we vist

A lovely way to spend a few hours in the French Quarter. Dylan aka Dr Gumbo was most a very knowledgeable, witty and entertaining guide. The cocktails and food were most enjoyable as was the history narrative provide by Dylan. I would recommend this tour but would suggest that you do this early on your trip so that you can benefit from guides recommendations of restaurants and bars. Very well done Dr Gumbo

Ben was very knowledgeable about NOLA history and food culture. Good food, and definitely a few places/dishes that I wouldn't have found or tried on my own. Loved the po'boy, gumbo and especially the upscale beignets. Only low point was the beef brisket... the oldest stand-up bar was fun to see but that particular dish was very meh. But still a fun way to spend an afternoon in NOLA!
