What you'll do

Please inquire if a tour is not available on your preferred dates!

I’ve designed a delicious feast of a tour seasoned with a dollop of history and a dash of culinary fun facts.

First we will meet at a café, and I’ll explain how together we can devour our way through the most vegan-friendly neighborhood in NYC (as well as my personal favorite), the East Village. The entire tour is less than 15 blocks in walking distance and is 100% wheelchair accessible. The only requirement is that you should be hungry!

We will start off savory, with the opportunity to sample Mexican cuisine, Szechuan specialties, and an artisanal twist on the Italian masterpiece, the pizza. You thought you were done? Oh but it doesn’t end there! Your sweet tooth is going to paradise with the many doughnuts, macarons, ice-creams, and other glorious and sinful treats available. Everything in the tour is 100% plant-based and vegan, you will enjoy it regardless of wether you eat plant-based or not yourself! :)

The tour ends at Tompkins Square, with the option to collapse on the grass to digest the experience and discuss the feast you just had, or alternatively wash it all down with creative cocktails and socialize at a popular vegan tiki bar just one block away.

A 20% commission of this experience’s price goes to Airbnb, and most of the rest goes towards purchasing the food. Tips are highly appreciated :)

Hello there!

My name is Caetano, and I’m happy to be your guide :)

I’m a polyglot native New Yorker with a passion for plant-based cuisine.

I’ve worked as a walking tour guide doing historical, cultural, and culinary tours since 2015. I have over 200 personal 5-star reviews to my name on TripAdvisor.

When I was 18 years old I started the first vegan restaurant in my second hometown (Mérida) in Mexico, within 3 months it was the #1 rated restaurant overall out of over 800 restaurants listed on TripAdvisor and it has been hovering among the top 5 ever since. In addition to that, I’ve worked in 6 different vegan restaurants in NYC, and have eaten at almost all of them (and there are countless!). I’ve also eaten my way through over 30 countries as a vegan and am thrilled to share with you the most innovative cuisine in the world! :)
