Authentic Asian food has made its way into restaurants all over Australia. Now you can taste delicacies, previously only found in the bustling foodie hotspots of Asia, right here in Melbourne.
Over the years, many cuisines have opened up around the city, due to more people trying and enjoying different tastes. Subsequently, Asian food has surged in popularity, not only because the flavours are so bold and different, but also because it is offered in a relatively economic format.
On this tour, Foodi will guide you around a variety of venues, including Chinese, Japanese, Malaysian and Vietnamese, each with their own delicious samples to share.
If you’re new to this style of cuisine, the tour is a great introduction, and will inspire you to try more. And if Asian food is already a firm favourite of yours, this is a great opportunity to discover more of Melbourne’s hidden gems, including a brand new pop-up venue.
During the tour, your host will share knowledge of each food sample, and you’ll also walk through bustling Chinatown, immersing the culture.
There will be some walking involved on the day, so please wear comfortable shoes and bring an umbrella if the weather calls for it.

Excellent tour cannot thank San enough, very informative, catered for my dietary needs. His knowledge of Melbourne’s bars and lane ways far surpassed our expectations as we walked around enjoying the Asian Food Tour.
