“Coronado: Great intro to the area”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

Such a gorgeous view from the Ferry Landing meeting area to downtown San Diego! Our friendly, yet polished and enthusiastic Katie, gave us interesting tidbits about the history of Coronado. Our first stop, Peohe's, was by far the best! We had prime seating and were served their luscious coconut crusted shrimp with a yummy dipping sauce. What a treat to have a visit from the executive chef to tell us about the restaurant and show off some of their fresh fish. Then a longish walk down Orange Avenue, wisely stopping on the way for more info of the area several times. Next stop was Night and Day Diner, a small, one man operated place, where we generously given a large fish taco with a delicious mango salsa. One could order beverages if desired. Then just next door to Alexander's Pizza. Another opportunity to sample two of their famous pizzas, a vegetarian and one laden with meat, as well as round balls of tasty dough filled with pepperoni and mozzarella.The 13 in our group left quite a bit... starting to get stuffed! A visit to an olive oil and balsamic vinegar shop was next. The owner gave a great lesson and shared cups of ice cream drizzled with a maple balsamic and almond liqueur. A discount was offered if one wanted to purchase anything. And, one could taste any of the offerings if desired. A cute candy store was next with a freshly made chocolate turtle offered (caramel and pecan in a rich chocolate), then gelato at the last place. We chose to take the 904 bus back to the ferry landing, a mile away. It was a pleasant way to enjoy Coronado. Everyone in the group was very pleasant. Definitely a fun way to spend a weekend day.

“Great way to learn history and enjoy wonderful food!”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

Who wouldn't enjoy this history lesson? Your tour guide Eddie greets you at your first restaurant and treats you to your first bite. You meet your new friends (a small intimate group of 14) and then walk through the Gaslamp District stopping to hear about the buildings and people who started San Diego and then proceed to Little Italy. Eddie was well versed and entertaining. When we were on the street, there was no difficulty hearing him as he talked - he projected very well. He talked to everyone in the group at each stop. He explained each food stop on the route as we approached and how the food was made - enticing us as we approached. His advertisements were right on. The places we visited are all worthy of a second visit for lunch or dinner. The portions served were more than enough for a taste and left us full enough to skip dinner. I would highly recommend Bite San Diego and especially Eddie Deull as your tour guide!!!

“So many great spots in Hillcrest!”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

We went on the Hillcrest food tour with Dani and had a blast! This was our first walking food tour and would highly recommend giving it a shot. We are new to the San Diego area, and this sounded like a great idea to check out a new area of town. Dani was entertaining and informative and we have a bunch of new spots to go back to! You won't get a full meal at every restaurant, but everyone commented about how full they were by the end of the tour. It was a good mix of savory dishes, desserts, and drinks; and Bite has selected some great spots! We'll be back to check out one of the other neighborhood tours!

“6 Bites that make a great meal”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Here is an opportunity to be guided to some really tasty restaurants in San Diego with a wonderful tour guide, Eddie. It was more like checking out the local foodie scene in a city with a friend. The group is small (12 the day we went) giving you an opportunity to mingle with your fellow diners. This tour allows you to step into places like Royal India, Venissimo, Berkeley Pizza, Karl Strauss Brewery, Na Pizza and Davanti Enoteca to have a hearty sample of their menu. My favorites were Na Pizza and Davanti Enoteca.
