Our tour guide, Nick Pena, who is also the owner of Food Tour, was wonderful! He is a native of Santa Fe, very knowledgeable in local history, as well as food and everything New Mexico. We enjoyed every stop, and all the food. The restaurants were ready for us as we came in and so friendly. We made 5 stops, San Francisco Bar & Grill where we had a lovely spinach salad and sat at a table by the window with a view of the town square, next was Thunderbird (used to be the Ore House) where we sat on the 2nd floor deck and had a fabulous chicken tostada. Then off to the Santa Fe Olive Oil where we sampled olive oils and balsamic vinegars infused with different spices and fruits, amazing! Nick shared lots of history and food tips with us as we strolled to each stop and gave us a few minutes to walk thru San Miguel Mission, the oldest church in the country. After the mission was the Upper Crust Pizza. Their courtyard is adjacent to one wall of the oldest known house in the country. This was a quaint and cozy courtyard where we ate a gourmet chicken pesto pizza that was to die for. The inside of this restaurant had very old photos of this part of town from the past. It had been renovated to maintain the feel of the original architecture of the site. Our last stop was Senor Murphy Candymaker, regional candy maker that has been around for close to 30 years. We sampled a maple/pinion nut candy, a chocolate/caramel/almond candy and a chocolate bark/chili/pistacio morsel. There was also 2 kinds of brittle to try. What delicious and different candies! The entire tour was fun and relaxed. Nick was so enthusiastic and friendly. We had an absolutely wonderful time.
