FOOD TOURS & COOKING CLASSES
ADD experience boxes
Our food experiences are lighthearted – we encourage you to join us in your best stretchy pants. We believe laughter and learning belong together and that local food tells stories that re-connect us with each other and the world around us.
Stretchy Pants is a versatile culinary experience company that reinvigorates the locals’ passion for their city’s food scene. Our experiences include food walks and custom food events. By keeping it small, focusing on fun, and tailoring the experience, we leave the customer hungry for more. You can trust us to treat you right.
So congratulations. You’ve broken through your food coma. No, not the kind of food coma you fall into after a fantastic sesh of stuffing your face with warm chocolate chip cookies, but the kind of coma we all find ourselves in when we realize we’ve just ordered Chinese from the same place on the corner one block down for the 4th time this month…ok, maybe 8th. Stretchy Pants is here to help. Our food tours and custom events operate in multiple neighborhoods throughout San Francisco with more to come!
Life is short but delicious. Whichever activity you choose to indulge in, you’ll leave full and informed and maybe a little tipsy!

What are people saying about our food tours and team building food experiences?
Jess was our guide for the Chinatown food walk, and Kara was our guide for a separate tour. Both were fantastic! They're friendly and know the stomping grounds well. And most importantly (to me, at least) they led us to stellar food at places I'd never tried, even as someone who's lived in or near San Francisco for almost eight years. If you need help finding the best SF neighborhood places to eat/drink at, Stretchy Pants is the way to go.Nicole A.
Jessica was a wonderful host. She offered insight from a local perspective and guided our group flawlessly. There was the perfect mix of history and modern interpretation during the tour and the food was all amazing. All the restaurant staff/owners knew Jessica by name which shows her status amongst the communityLaura
Delicious food and a unique experience in the best Chinatown in the US! We felt very taken care of, especially since the staff at each of the places we visited knew Kara so well. Kara and her team have really done their research, and it shows!Aaron
Fantastic experience! Great mix of culture, fun and food with a side of cardio haha. Would absolutely recommend to anybody unsure on where to start their food journey in Chinatown.Nick
This experience was really special and wonderfully put together. Our tour guide, Peter, was genuinely friendly and made sure we all had a great time. I bought this Dim Sum tour as a surprise for my husband's birthday and he loved it. My husband (who LOVES Chinatown and has been countless times) remarked that he saw things he never knew were there. We learned a lot and had some great food along the way. The reviews are right, show up hungry and you'll be fed plenty! We even had some special dietary requests for which they happily accommodated. Thanks so much Peter!!!Betany
We had Kyra as our tour guide, and she was such a fountain of knowledge! I'm a San Franciscan, and I've always felt that I know the city like the back of my hand. Kyra showed me otherwise. She took us inside buildings I've walked by dozens of times but never thought to go into, and there was magic in every one. Plus, we had some of the best hole in the wall dim sum I've ever had! This tour really helped reignite the magic of SF for me.Lea
