Some strolls are more appetizing than others.

Noshwalks, an internationally respected culinary-and-cultural tour company, will lead Wandering Woodhaven on Saturday, April 28, starting at noon.

Participants will meet at the Woodhaven Post Office, 86-42 Forest Pkwy., which features murals by Ben Shahn, a Lithuanian artist from the social realism genre. (Some geographers would argue that this is technically in Richmond Hill.)

Then, they will amble along a particularly delicious stretch of Jamaica Avenue in Woodhaven and sample a multi-continental smorgasbord of tastes from Central America, Peru, Guyana, Colombia, Poland, Germany, and Mexico.

The guide, Myra Alperson, doesn’t publicize the names of her targeted restaurants until the tour begins, but she’s has alluded to historic Neir’s Tavern, which is the country’s oldest bar that has operated continuously in the same place, and Schmidt’s Candy, a legendary, three-generation sweet shop where all the products are homemade and handmade by Margie Schmidt, the founder’s granddaughter.

As per another policy of hers, Alperson, who leads about 30 Noshwalks tours a year, will provide tailored maps with information on all the participating purveyors so Saturday strollers can return to the places they like after the tour.

The $59 fee includes bites, but not beverages. Children (ages 6 to 12) pay $20, and younger youths can attend for free.
