Burlington Food Tours: Stretchy Pants Required

Posted June 6, 2019by Kristene Smith

Don’t even think about wearing skinny jeans because you’ll most likely end up regretting it at the end of your Burlington Food Tour!  This one-of-a-kind food tour is a fun & delicious way to spend an afternoon in Downtown Burlington.  You’ll meet new people, discover new restaurants, eat delicious food and leave with both a belly & heart full of love for the variety of dining options Burlington has to offer.

Watch the video from our Let’s Discover ON YouTube Channel.  Check it out and let us know what you think by commenting below and on YouTube.

We were lucky to attend the first-ever food tour along with fellow bloggers One Modern CoupleSid Friedman & HungryHungryHeeJoo.  They all specialize in creating food-related content so follow them online to find out which cool and interesting restaurant or meal they are currently enjoying.

Here’s how a Burlington Food Tour works. You’ll arrive at the first stop, check in, create a nametag and then mingle with other guests until the tour begins.  The owner, chef or manager will then explain the restaurant, standard and special menu items before each person receives their tasting which is a sample-sized portion.  The group then moves on by walking to the next restaurant and this is repeated 4-5 times depending on the number of restaurants included in the tour.

We’d now like to introduce you to Sue & Lori who are the beauties and brains behind Burlington Food Tours.  They are not only “foodies” but also genuinely lovely ladies who take time to carefully select their restaurant partners and plan the tour to ensure a fun and enjoyable walking & dining experience for their guests.

Sue & Lori – The fabulous ladies from Burlington Food Tours.

Sue and Lori keep things unique, interesting and different by selecting various restaurants and cuisines for each tour which occurs once per month from June through October.

Here are few pictures from our food tour however keep in mind that the restaurants vary from one tour to the next. Warning: do not scroll down on an empty stomach!

The Block & Co – 395 John St.
An upscale deli is how we’d describe The Block & Co.  There are specialty meats, cheeses and olives to please every palate.

The Block Co – Charcuterie Board

Boon Burger Cafe – 399 Elizabeth St.
An entirely plant-based restaurant that even meat-lovers like Tony will enjoy.  Also, they don’t fry anything..very healthy eats.

Vegan Sliders – So Delicious

Papa Giuseppe’s – 455 Brant St.
The traditional Italian thin-crust pizzas and pastas are what caught our attention on the menu.  As you can tell from the video everyone on the tour also loved the meat-a-ballas!

Barra Fion – 1505 Guelph Line #10A (Burlington Heights Plaza)
We visited both the Downtown Burlington pop-up version created especially for the tour as well as the main restaurant which is at the north end of the city.  If you’re a fan of tapas and sangria then Barra Fion is the place to be.

Emma’s Back Porch – 2084 Old Lakeshore Road
Emma’s offers the best views of Lake Ontario in addition both traditional and non-traditional bar-and-grill fare so grab a table on the patio and enjoy.  There’s also special events and live music so visit the website for more info

You can thank us later. First, wipe the drool off your face.
