Foods of NY: Food Tour Review

In today's post, I thought I would share one of my favourite things to do when I visit New York: food tours! This was my second time using Foods of NY Tours. The first time, I toured Greenwich Village but this time I decided on the Nolita/ Noho tour. 
What I love about food tours is the opportunity to learn a bit of the city's history while being introduced to restaurants that I may not have visited on my own. The food is always fantastic and this particular tour did not disappoint! 

The first stop on the tour was at Little Cupcake Bakeshop. Here we tasted the mouthwatering Brooklyn Blackout mini cupcake. The photos don't do this cake justice. This moist, chocolatey cake was filled with the creamiest ganache filling. Selfishly, I was so happy that five people were a no-show on our tour because we were able to have up to 2 servings or more as there were leftovers! 

From the Little Bake Shop, we made our way over to Emporio where we watched our brick-oven pizzas get made in front of us. Talk about fresh and colourful ingredients! We had the prosciutto and arugula pizza topped with tomatoes and parmesan. I definitely had two or more servings here. It was better than every pizza I had when visiting Italy this past year! 
It was extremely difficult to pick a favourite spot from all the places we visited, but Tartinery was at the top of the list for me. The flavours of the roast beef tartine still resonate with me and I crave it all the time! Too bad I'd have to fly 3000 miles just to have it again! I'll definitely be back the next time I'm in New York. We even had a wine pairing with this meal which was a nice bonus. 


Dress: c/o Morning Lavender | Bag: c/o Morning Lavender | Sunglasses: c/o Sunglass LA (use code 'rinasamantha25' for 25% off) | Earrings: c/o Dose of Rose (use code 'rina15' for 15% off!) | Belt: c/o Le Chateau

The next stop on the tour was Tacombi. This was probably my least favourite of the tour as I found the corn dish a little too rich for my liking but my girlfriend seemed to enjoy hers. If you're a fan of tequila you definitely need to check this place out because they have a mixed drink that punches you in the throat and takes all your inhibitions away - I just wish I remembered what it was called??? I would go back to try the tacos because that's my favourite kind of Mexican food. 

I believe this house-made ricotta cheese and bread was from Oficina Latina, but I could be wrong. It was just as delicious as the photos make it out to be. I totally spotted Ashley Benson from Pretty Little Liars here, just casually having lunch, when I went in to use the bathroom. Talk about a star-studded trip to New York this go-around.

I'm already browsing the Foods of NY website for my next visit (September 2018). I think I'll try Brooklyn or Washington Square Park next time. What are your thoughts on Food Tours? Have you ever done one before?
