Hungry for Pittsburgh history? Head here.

International food. Multiple generations. One street.

Penn Avenue in the Strip District has been home to international food for more than a century. And while you’ve likely strolled the Strip, this video goes behind the scenes of a Burgh Bits & Bites food tour for some insider knowledge.

We hung out with Jimmy Sunseri while diving into a foot-long pepperoni roll. We scooped up all the butter and onions at S&D Polish Deli. And wherever we went, our tour guide Valerie Alchier shared the rich history of these iconic eateries. 

It’s more than a mouthwatering tour. It’s a delicious history lesson. Let’s dig in. (And here’s how to book your own tour experience).
