We met with our guide Kelly and several other guests at the Andaz Hotel where we started with introductions and shrimp and grits. It was delicious. From there we went to the Pie Society and had sausage in a flaky pastry - YUM!! Then it was on to Molly McPhersons for shepard pie - another delicious treat. After which we went to the Ordinary Pub where we tried pork belly sliders on a donut with bacon jam and bread pudding french toast. This was interesting - I truly enjoyed the pork belly - the donut and french toast were not for me. But I was able to get a tomatillo bloody mary to go which was delicious and very spicy. Then it was off to Zunzi's where we were treated to a conquistador sandwich which was also delicious. Our last stop was the honey bee company where we got to try several different kinds of honey. Tupelo was my favorite! It was a gastronomic feast! While we walked from place to place our guide Kelly talked and gave us some interesting tidbits of Savannah history.

Savannah Ann(e) not only knew food she was an encyclopedia of Savannah history. She knew every business and what was down every alley. We learned more in 3 hours than what we learned on our last 3 Savannah trips. Thank you Ann. We will be back for your other tour.
