The history of Ybor City is so rich that it dates back as far as 1885 when it was first established. Ybor City is a historic neighborhood that is located just northeast of Downtown Tampa, and north of the Port of Tampa. Although the original population was mostly composed of Cuban and Spanish immigrants who worked in the cigar factories.
We believe the only way to truly get a feel for a city or a town is to experience it through it’s culture and cuisine. We are the first premier, private food tasting business that has only one purpose: To Share The Best Food In Town With Your Food Pallet!!. On our private culinary tours is a 2-hour tour that will immerse you in local culture through delightful authentic dishes while visiting historical landmarks and exciting stories.
