If you want to have a culinary adventure, this is the tour for you. Key West Food Tours takes you through Old Town and let’s you not only learn the history of this amazing Island, but you get to taste it too. The tour wanders you through Old Town and gives you time to enjoy food and drink at six different stops.
The tours are usually small in size. We lucked out on ours because we were the only ones on the tour. Analise, the owner, is amazing. She is a Conch and loves to tell the stories about old Key West. She was very, very helpful and answered all of our questions. Trust me, if we go on one of your tours, and you let us ask questions, we will!
The tour started at El Siboney. One of the reasons I wanted to go on this tour, was I had never tasted Cuban food. We are not big pork eaters and in my mind, all of the dishes were about the pork. Because of this tour, I am a total convert. I love Cuban food. Analise told us all about why some Cuban food has yellow rice while others have white rice. (You must take the tour to find out why). El Siboney has become one of our go to places while in town.
Our next stop was Camille’s. It is that funky little place with the big pink awnings. There we had conch fritters and learned how they were made. The place is just as funky inside as it is outside.
From there we walked over to The Rum Bar. Here we had their world famous PainKiller. It has become one of our favorite stops when we walk down Duval. Check out the Dade County Pine on the walls and try, just try, to count all of the different rums!
Bad Boy Burrito was next. We had the most wonderful fish tacos. Learn how local fisherman are suppling restaurants and locals alike.
Then we moved on for dessert. What’s more perfect in Key West than Key lime pie? We had the most wonderful key lime pie from Blue Heaven. It was so good, that I didn’t even stop eating it to take a picture!
Last on the walking tour is Key West Distilling. They have some of the best vodka and rums you will ever try. Locally made in small batches, you will buy a bottle to take home… trust me on that.
This was my first food tour and I must say, not my last. There is so much history to be learned on a food tour. History, not only about the location, but the local food and spirits. A good tour is always led by a great guide and Analise, was outstanding. She offers a great tour with interesting tidbits she drops along the way. Don’t be concerned about the walking part. Although it wanders all through Old Town, you are stopping along the way and can rest, if needed. Them them Fun In Key West sent you!
