I took a food tour with Melissa at Zesty PDX last week and it was one of the best dining experiences I've had in Portland! As a food lover, it is always so hard for me to choose just ONE restaurant for lunch/dinner, since there are so many wonderful options in Portland. The ability to visit SIX places in one afternoon, sampling generous custom-made plate and beverage portions, was like a food dream come true. I also enjoyed hearing Melissa's insights into the establishments we visited, food and drinks we sampled and Portland neighborhoods we walked through. I will definitely take another food tour with her company!

If you're looking for a great way to experience a little bit of everything that Portland has to offer look no further. First of all Melissa is an incredible tour guide, I was absolutely blown away by her knowledge. Everywhere we went she was a wealth of knowledge about the place, the chef, the food etc. You can tell this is truly her passion. Everywhere we went the food choices and drinks were on-point. The experience made our entire group feel warm and welcome. If you're going to be in the area, especially with a group, I'd highly recommend this!

Food, drinks, friends, fun! That's a great recipe to start with, but when you incorporate Melissa's passion for great food and her love of Portland, the end product is fabulous! The restaurants were varied and the menu items that she picked for our tour were delicious and devoured by all. We learned about the history of the area and saw many beautiful murals on NE Alberta. I can't wait for my next ZestyPDX tour!

Great food and drinks. A fun tour to try 6 great places. Can not decide which one is the best. Melissa is an incredible guide. Loved learning about the art on the streets.

Thanks so much for joining the tour! I do my best to contact the artists and talk to gallery owners to find out their inspiration behind their works so I’m so happy you enjoyed learning about the art.

I enjoyed my food tour of the Alphabet District! As someone who has been to Portland before and eaten at a number of restaurants, I found it wonderful to discover some places I hadn’t heard of.

This is one of the best things to do in Portland! It is a city known for its great cuisine, and Melissa is the perfect guide. You can see her passion for great food and for sharing it with others. The tour was the perfect length of time and I walked away stuffed and happy! Take one of these tours the next time you’re in town!

The tour was beyond my expectations. I had a very good time!

The food was awesome, it included some items that are not part of the regular menu of the places visited. The portions were good size. I was full before dessert - not a problem, though, as dessert has its own stomach.

Besides the great food, you get to learn some history of the neighborhood, the places visited.

I've been living in Portland for around 4 years now, and I the placed visited surprised me.

Great tour, looking forward to touring the other neighborhoods.

What a fun food tour in Portland!! A great way to see the NW Alphabet District. We checked out some great places such as Fullerton Wines and Lela's Bistro to name a few. Not only do you get to taste delicious food on this tour, but also some tasty wine and beer! A perfect way to spend the afternoon exploring one of Portland's best neighborhoods.
