Wynwood Food Tour

Last Saturday my BF and I spent the day on the Wynwood Food Tour, where we tried 5 local restaurants and learned about the history and art of the neighborhood on the way. Below are some photos I took while on the tour, and at the end the outfit I wore. I decided to go comfortable as it was pretty warm and we walked several blocks (I wouldn't recommend wearing heels!).
We started off at Wynwood Kitchen & Bar where we tried some traditional Cuban food and a beer to compliment it.
Then our tour guide showed us the Wynwood Walls and talked about the various artists that have murals there.
The group walked a few blocks to our next location to try mofongo at Jimmy'z Kitchen. I was so hungry I forgot to take pictures there :) Then we went to one of my new favorite spots, Pride & Joy, for some barbecue. 
Then we walked across the street to try ceviche at Su Viche. I'm not a fish person but I told myself I would try anything that they gave us, so I did it! It was presented in a shot glass so it was easy to drink down.
Our final stop of the tour was a new Italian restaurant called Made in Italy. It was designed to resemble an Italian market, with different sections selling cold cuts, wine, desserts, pasta etc. We were treated to a glass of Prosecco, some asiago cheese, and delicious prosciutto. 
Overall, I had a great time on the tour. The food portions were filling, so I felt like I got my money's worth after the 5 restaurants. I thought our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the food, as well as the history of Wynwood and the art that makes Wynwood so special. The guide said that they change the restaurants frequently based on new spots that come to the area. There was really something for everyone on the tour in terms of food preferences. They are also able to accommodate vegetarians if you tell them in advance! I would definitely do a food tour again - the company also has tours of South Beach and Little Havana - maybe another weekend! You can get your own tickets here.
