Best of the Barrio Culinary Tour

Offered By Gray Line Tucson

When considering the many culinary options in the heavily Hispanic region of South Tucson, Gray Line chose to offer family-owned establishments that are truly eager to share their passion with you. The tour begins at La Estrella Bakery, where the aroma at the threshold will beckon you to delve deeper into the kitchens of this little bakery. Here, you not only discover fresh pastries and how they're made, but you also learn about the various Mexican traditions they are used for.  It's essentially a lesson in Hispanic culture and the reason behind the many holidays and celebrations, of which food is such a large part. After this gustatory delight, the tour takes you to several different types of Mexican restaurants focusing on tacos, burritos, ceviche, fish, and Sonoran hot dogs and finishes with a sweet raspado, a combination of shaved ice, ice cream, and fresh hand-cut fruit.

Attendees: 1 min./52 max.
