Melbourne Food Experiences takes you to Footscray as it has long been Melbourne's cultural meeting place with Italian, Greek, Irish, Indian and Vietnamese people living alongside recently arrived migrants from Eritrea, Ethiopia and Somalia. This amazing mix of cultures has created a unique place for food lovers to explore.
This tour will take in many of these cuisines as you work your way through the butchers, fishmongers and delis of the Footscray Market.
Move beyond the market to explore streets filled with Indian food stores, Italian bakeries and Asian grocers. Tastings start with a hot jam doughnut from the famous Olympic doughnut van.
You also have an opportunity to try Bombay spice mix, Asian snacks, ricotta filled cannoli, sugarcane juice and traditional African bread. The tour also explores the Little Saigon Shopping precinct to get a taste of Vietnamese food and ingredients.
Explore local African cafes and get a look into many of the stunning dining rooms in the area. Plus you get to experience a traditional coffee ceremony followed by a beautiful shared meal of Injera bread and fragrant Ethiopian dishes at a local restaurant.
