FOOD TOURS & EXPERIENCES
IN SAN FRANCISCO!

Four people on fun food tour in San Francisco Copyright Stretchy Pants Food Experiences

TASTE SAN FRANCISCO

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!

Stretchy Pants Food Walks

LOCAL FOOD WALKS & EXPERIENCES 

The tour you didn’t know you were looking for! Stretchy Pants food walks are fun and informative. Yay!

Here’s what to expect:

  • Visit the cutest neighborhoods
  • Taste food from local vendors and restaurants
  • Get the inside scoop on the best places to eat
  • Learn a brief history of the area and its food trends

You’ll leave stuffed and informed, and perhaps a bit tipsy (if you play your cards right!). So drag your friends away from another day at the park and check out our delicious food walks!

Team Building Events 

If your last team building experience was a bore or a snore, it’s because we weren’t there! We can help you shake up your next team building event with customizable packages that fit your needs. You can always book a pre-existing food tour privately for your group, but if you have something special in mind, we can make it happen.

Check out our team building food experiences options:

  • Custom food tours
  • Custom tastings at your office
  • Food pop-ups stations at your event

Check out the other fun activities we can cook up on our team building food experience page. If you have something special in mind, just fill out the request form and we will get in touch.

Stretchy Pants Cooking Classes

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.

    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 community

  • 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!

    Not to miss! Had a great time walking through Chinatown, learning about the area’s history, and the character of the neighborhood. Peter was a fabulous host, making everyone feel welcome and encouraging camaraderie in the group. The food was delish.

  • 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!!!

    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.

    Kara was incredibly flexible and adaptable for our group. Her tour was amazing and she was so knowledgeable about the both the food and the culture. We all left with smiles and full bellies and would definitely recommend to anyone looking to explore Chinatown from a local perspective!
