Ten Tastes Of Soho Tour for Foodies in London

Ten Tastes Of Soho Tour for Foodies in LondonA couple of Saturdays back, I tagged along on a delicious tour through the historic and vibrant streets of one of London's most celebrated neighbourhoods – Soho. The tour was organized and led by chef, ex-restaurateur, and host of the Scratch Supper Club, Michelle Francis, and took a small group of enthusiastic foodies on a walk around the area to discover the “Ten Tastes of Soho” and learn about “the Big Five” – a quintet of local restauranteurs and chefs whom Michelle reckons are the most important movers and shakers in the Soho dining scene. The tour started around 11 in the morning and lasted until 2 p.m. with plenty of food and drink provided along the way, leaving no need for an early dinner.

During the three hour tour, we hit about a dozen food businesses – from London's oldest deli and coffee shop that's over 125 years old to trendy new venues with just about any and everything tasty in between. Now, I could tell you what Michelle's supposed ten tastes of Soho are and easily list all the places we went, but that would take a lot of the fun out of the tour for you. Of course, I've been munching my way in and out of Soho since I moved to London from the States back in 2001. Still, I really enjoyed “discovering” the places Michelle took us to – I might have even learned a thing or two. I also found her thoughts about the Big Five to be really interesting and enlightening (and a cleverly constructed subplot to our urban adventure).

The cost of this food tour is £59 per person – roughly $100 (US) – and includes all food and refreshments. Considering the expertise, the access to so many venues and the quality and quantity of food provided, that's a pretty decent value.   


If you're new to London or planning a visit here soon, I'm happy to recommend taking part in the Ten Tastes of Soho tour. It's a fantastic opportunity to get your bearings while having some great food from around the world and experiencing Central London at its best.
