We met the tour group at Covert Artisans Ales and Cellars at 1 pm.
We sampled one wild sour beer called Blackberry Crumble and a “rainbow sherbet” seltzer called Project Inclusion.
A short walk to Ode to Food and Drink
to try Chislic – a South Dakota specialty, pronounced chiz-lick – or fried red meat served with a Thai pepper peanut sauce and a ghost pepper sauce plus a delicious white sangria with peach schnapps.
Dana, the owner of Sioux Falls Food Tours did a great job of sharing stories about the city and some of its history.
Stop #3: Monk’s Ale House.
Mashed potato pizza and ..
a hummus platter.
A short walk to R Wine Bar.
The R is for Riccardo who came over to our table to share a bit about his history – he came to America from Italy when he was 5 years old – and how the restaurant came to be. Fascinating.
Pasta pomodoro with meatballs and paired with the perfect red wine.
Final stop, dessert at Prairie Cocoa and Confection.
This was called Strawberry Hot Chocolate.
This was the best food tour I’ve taken so far. Great food, everything timed well, restaurants ready for us with very prompt service, a few chef or owner visits, excellent guide. Dana leads 4 different food tours during a month. Great job Dana and Sioux Falls Food Tours!
