East LA Latin Flavors Tour
Taking an exciting tour of East Los Angeles!
Most visitors who tour Los Angeles head straight for the main attractions. The downside is that so many miss out on the wonderfully rich culture and street life happening over in East LA. Join us as we veer slightly off the beaten track with our exciting  East LA Latin Flavors Food & Culture Tour. Start the day with delicious coffee and fresh baked goods in one of LA’s most interesting settings. Then hop on the Metro Gold Line for a short train ride to discover the most amazing freshly hand-made Tamales. Then head to the bustling open air market before exploring a real-deal Tortilla factory to try all kinds of salsa/guacamole dips and delicacies. A quick hop back on the Metro Gold Line train drops us off at Mariachi Plaza for a sumptuous lunch of mouth-watering Goat and Pupusa. Polish all this unbelievable food off with fabulous iced Mexican Chocolate and bakery fresh pan dulce.
All of these glorious foods are prepared from time-honored family recipes and served with the true warmth and hospitality we’ve come to associate with Latin Culture. For visitors and natives alike, there’s a whole other side of LA just waiting to be discovered, so join us on our new East LA Latin Flavors food tour.

On this tour, you will:

  • Visit LA’s first tortilla factory
  • Taste time-honored family recipes
  • Visit a nationally-renowned tamale restaurant
  • Visit LA’s first birrieria
  • Hear stories of courageous spirit, community, and family loyalty from local merchants
  • Visit a health-conscious pupuseria
  • Visit a contemporary Latina café

Beginning near downtown Los Angeles, we also spend time in Boyle Heights, with well-deserved focus on Mariachi Plaza, the grand centerpiece of the neighborhood. Palates are pleased beyond measure to enjoy a unique medley of fresh, amazing Latin flavors that have graced family tables for generations. Starting with breakfast, guests are treated to traditional handmade foods, some of which originated south of our border over 100 years ago! Foods tasted may be typically expected, yet are extraordinarily prepared. The tour concludes back at our original starting point. The food samples served are filling enough so that for most people lunch afterward is not necessary.


Parking at the starting point is not included. Rates for parking range from $3-$5  for the entire day.

Gratuity to the tour leader is customary especially if you had a great time & would like to recognize the tour guide for a job well done. A 15-20% tip is considered standard and is greatly appreciated!
