Cabramatta is one of the jewels in Sydney – promoted as “A Day Trip to Asia”, this is exactly what you get, a whirl of colour and many languages, shops with exotic fruits and vegetables piled high, tastes of many authentic dishes. Our safaris are guided by experts who live in the area and are proud to show off their Vietnamese heritage, bringing us to their ‘finds’ – down little alleyways and tucked into the back of shopping areas. We visit on a Sunday when there is also a thriving unofficial market of people selling herbs and chopped lemongrass, dragonfruit and cured pork. A unique and inspiring place!

My wife and I were lucky enough to participate on last Sunday's gourmet food safari of Cabramatta hosted by Maeve and Michelle, it was absolutely fantastic and we wonder why we have not been on one of these tours to date. I have the brochure and other paperwork and will study it to see when we can organise another safari.
The safari was really well organised and the store owners were very welcoming and willing to assist in any way possible and of course many purchases were as a result. The food that we sampled at both restaurants and along the way was delightful and very flavoursome which has inspired me to try Vietnamese cooking rather than the curries and tagines that I serve up on a regular basis.
Again, thank you and very well organised,
