  • Where to Eat in Oakland, California: A Local’s Guide

    A local's guide to where to eat in Oakland. The best restaurants in Oakland for getting incredible food in Oakland, California!

    When people think of the Bay Area’s amazing food scene, they typically think of San Francisco. In our extremely biased opinions (as Oakland residents for 4 years) the food in Oakland is hella underrated: chicken & waffles, shrimp & grits, spongy Ethiopian injera bread, sizzling Korean bulgogi, bubbling mac & cheese… these are Oakland’s flavors. If you haven’t explored Oakland as a foodie (I see you, people who only come to Oakland for Warrior’s games), here’s a complete list of our favorite restaurants in Oakland to get you started on your next trip to the Bay Area!

  • The Brussels Beer and Chocolate Tour

    The Brussels Beer & Chocolate Tour: why choose just one? This Brussels food tour combines the best of both worlds!

    It’s no secret that we love a good food tour when exploring a new place. Food tours are the best way to explore a city on foot while learning about its culture and history, in between stuffing yourself with as much excellent local food as you can stand. So we couldn’t leave Brussels without doing a Belgian food tour that focused on our two favorite Belgian icons: beer and chocolate (sorry, Jean Claude Van Damme). Luckily, The Brussels Journey created a tour that combines the best of 2 worlds: the Brussels Beer and Chocolate Tour! Get you a tour that can do both.
