SA Food Tours Invites Locals and Tourists to Eat Their Way Around San Antonio
SA Food Tours had their grand opening the first part of November, offering guests a combination of delicious cuisine, a socially interactive atmosphere, and interesting insights into the history and cultural development of San Antonio.
Co-owner, Jordan Gonzales, originally had the idea in 2013. He wanted to show visitors and locals some of the great eateries in our town that are off the beaten path, while also teaching them about the revitalization of the city, which is largely influenced by an initiative called SA2020. At the time, the food scene in San Antonio was still developing. In 2016, after building a relationship with several local chefs and restaurant owners, Jordan joined forces with co-owner Michael Ehl and they were ready to launch.
“San Antonio is filled with many unique restaurants. However, most people don’t venture out to find these hidden gems. With the food scene really blossoming here, I want people to taste the wide variety that San Antonio has to offer. Too often do I get invited to dinner at well-known chain restaurants. There’s so much more this city has to offer than the big names on the Riverwalk and we are showing our guests just that,” said Jordan. Not only is he a food enthusiast, he also wants to be a part of the current revitalization he’s seeing take place in San Antonio.
SA Food Tours has hosted 150 people in the past two months, with visits from well-known bloggers and local officials who are delighted to explore some of San Antonio’s hidden gems and take pride in our city’s history and future development.
“This tour will introduce the 32 million annual tourists and locals to the restaurants that are making San Antonio the next foodie destination. Our motto says it all: revealing San Antonio through food,” said Jordan.
