From Aus-based trip vendors Intrepid, the newly-launched Food Adventures are a series of global gasto-tours designed to "satisfy every appetite" with a "delicious taste of the world". See what they they did there? Classic!
The trips themselves are broken down into three tiers of hardcoreness, with the top level supporting a whopping two weeks of curated gorging.
Dubbed The Real Food Adventures, said baller packages have you running the gamut of food-tourism, with their Mexico offering sending you to barbarcoa pit-barbecues, mole poblano & tinga cooking classes, cactus & fried grasshopper tasting at Oaxaca’s Abastos Market, and a belly-defying taco crawl through Mexico city.
The creamy middle tier is a set of Bite-Size Breaks that run from 4-5 days, and include things like their N'awlins tour, which'll net you Sazeracs from The French Quarter, sugar plantation tours/feasts, and jazz halls to dance it all off.
The quickest and smallest tours are their Urban Food Safaris, taking only a couple of hours, but packing in tons. Take their Tokyo After 5: you get street-bar yakitori, Monja-yaki (like a weird, delicious pancake thing) served "in the neighborhood where it originated", tai-yaki ("a favorite Japanese sweet"), and obviously, schloads of sushi… which is no raw deal! See what we did there?? Classic!
