From our organizers:
In the past decade, the East Village has transformed from a post-punk wasteland to an east-coast outpost of Japanese culture. From Ramen to Squid, Bubble Tea to Curry, we’ll explore all the internationally influenced food Little Tokyo has to offer.
Which fast food chains have their only American outposts in Little Tokyo? What’s the difference between traditional and modern Japanese desserts? What are the three primary flavors of Japanese street food? The answers to these questions and more as you learn to eat in the neighborhood where New York and Tokyo meet.
We’ll meet in Manhattan, in front of 101 Astor Place by the Keith Haring sculpture. The cost of this tour includes four tastings of sweet and savory snacks. Vegetarian options are available.
