This Sydney food tour is a slice of history and culture, alongside deliciously diverse cuisine, telling the Aussie story of migration and settlement from the early days to the most modern times.

This mouthwatering journey will visit hidden landmarks and share little known stories from the history of Chinese Australians.  You will enjoy some of the best of Asian Australian cuisine, with origins from China, Korea, Thailand and the Philippines.

With modern fusion and Sydney’s Chinatown classics, dishes include the best KFC (Korean Fried Chicken), handmade dumplings and noodles enjoyed by chefs on their days off, and a lotus shaped gelato beautiful enough to Instagram and delicious enough to win awards.

Your tour will also include the serenity of a classic Chinese Tea Ceremony, an ancient and beautiful tradition, shared by dedicated young tea enthusiasts.

You’ll find out where the locals love to eat, and learn about authentic recipes passed down over centuries in Asia and adapted to include Australian ingredients. There are generous portions on this tour, so come hungry! 

You’ll hear stories of settlement as you taste and tour with Taste Cultural Food Tours Inc., a charity that supports new and young Australians, including refugees, through training and employment. Taste Tours loves Sydney as much for its cultural wealth as for its climate and spectacular views. The city is a culinary treasure trove!
