I recently participated in the tour of Little India in the City of Artesia, CA and had a great time. This was actually a test tour since it isn't currently offered by Melting Pot so when I got the email, I tried to get a spot. As this was a test tour, we had the pleasure of having Diane and her sister, Lisa also join the tour and I had a great time. Farhana, our tour leader was knowledgeable, professional and fun to be around. Lunch was offered and I liked it a lot. This is my second tour with Melting Pot and I've had a great time every time. It's fun to feel like a tourist in your own city...so many different cultures in LA that there's always something new to learn.

Our guide Andrew was very knowledgeable and really nice. Farmers Market would not be the same for us without this tour!

I'd say today was a very special day. From Ruen Pair to Sapp Coffee Shop (btw, it's not really a coffee shop-Jade Noodle is a must try) to BangLuck Market to Hollywood Restaurant and Bar to Bhan Kanom Thai-(The Original Thai Desserts). It was a perfect balance of trying some amazing dishes, to great and insightful conversation to learning some inside secrets of the renown Thai Town. As far as Jet Tila, he is truly an awesome person and an awesome human being. It was definitely a pleasure to get to know him a little and have an opportunity to do some small talk and get an inside track and tips and tricks on how to prepare some of my favorite Thai dishes. Oh yeah, and Jet drives a Tesla (Jet Black) which makes the whole things so much more awesome. The organization of the tour was spot on. Andy who was our tour MC has a true passion for culinary arts and did an amazing job making everyone feel welcome and providing some of his insight on things. Truly an incredible experience and highly recommended.

This is a great and informative tour done by Alex. Followed by wonderful meats, cheeses and of course their signature dish, paella. Served with wine to share among the new friends we meet on the tour. Great time!
