New Division: Corporate, Weddings, Large Group Events, and Conferences in Savannah

We are extremely excited to announce our new division: Micro Food Fest! These events are held in the evening and are ideal for organizations attending conferences in Savannah, corporate events, weddings, and large groups of 125+ people who want to sample cuisine from 10+ top Savannah restaurants and specialty food shops, all in one location. The idea for these events was sparked by requests from visitors, Savannah event planners, and our partner restaurants for evening Savannah Taste Experiences. We knew our daytime food tour model wouldn’t be ideal because the restaurants are too busy, foot traffic picks up, and not all the stories and landmarks we like to discuss along the way are easily visible at night. So, we brainstormed a way to share all the wonderful, diverse food in Savannah but as a dinnertime option and came up with our Micro Food…

The Ordinary Pub Joins Savannah Taste Experience

Although already a 5-star rated Savannah attraction, Savannah Taste Experience food tours stay on the lookout for new ways to showcase Savannah’s ever-growing and diversely delicious culinary scene. Their most recent addition is partnering with new restaurant, The Ordinary Pub, located on Broughton Street. This stop, as part of their First Squares food tour, features pork belly sliders, which are seared and then braised in Dr. Pepper overnight and are served with a dash of homemade raspberry-chipotle sauce and cilantro.

5 Top Spots for Breakfast in Savannah, GA

Since our delicious food tours go to lunch, dinner and dessert spots, we don’t get to talk about breakfast too much—which is a shame because we are breakfast and coffee fanatics! We’ve got a mix of new, old, fast and Slo-vannah breakfast places so you can pick which suits your mood and schedule. THE COLLINS QUARTER This new gorgeous spot on the corner of bustling Bull and Oglethorpe has made quite a splash since opening this year, especially since Channing Tatum, Jenna Dewan, Sofia Vergara, and Joe Manganiello were spotted sharing some laughs through the window. Definitely a great place to go if you want to ease into your day, but the counter service can get you out the door quickly, too.
