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


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!
