This tour far exceeded any expectations I might have had. Joe is so knowledgeable about not only the food, but the neighborhood's history and culture, so the walk is peppered (sorry) with tasty bits (sorry again) of information and interesting sights. The places he took us were truly little gems, off the beaten path, and I had the best versions of some of my favorite Chinese dishes (steamed rice rolls, soup dumplings). This was such a treat and incredibly worth the time and money (I don't really think he charges enough, actually). Would recommend to anyone who enjoys Asian food (including Uzbeki and South Asian - its a really diverse eating experience) and wants to be guided by someone who's tried everything and can introduce you to the best spots.
