When I go to visit a new place, I want to see what kinds of food they have specific to their area. You may not think of the different places in Albany to try, here's a brand new opportunity to do it all in one day and learn something!

I first heard about Taste of Troy Food Tours when she was still just doing the culinary walkabouts in Troy. While learning about Troy and Capital Region history, we stopped at places like Psychedelicatessen, The Whistling Kettle, nibble (which she has since replaced with Dutch Utter), and more! Now, Taste of Troy Food Tours is expanding to Albany and they start this week!

For about $60, you can take a 3-4 hours tour of Downtown Albany learned about the buildings you may walk by every day as well as trying samples from places you may otherwise have not gone into. The new Downtown Albany tour makes stops at the Albany Pump Station, Ama Cocina, The Hollow Bar & Kitchen, Stacks Espresso Bar, Olde English Pub, as well as the First Church of Albany.

You may be thinking that you're going to be getting small samples of each place but pace yourself because you get pretty large servings and even though you're walking, you'll get full pretty quickly!

There's currently a Mother's Day promotion going on: Book a tour in May with Mom and Mom gets 50% off her ticket - use promo code Mom2018 . Valid on both tours for May 4th - May 25th.
