Local Food Safaris

Truly a world in day, a glorious snapshot of multicultural Australia at its most delicious. Start the day with our dear friends at Grossi Florentino with a good Italian coffee and crostoli then delve into the fragrant Casa Iberica, the stronghold of Spanish, Portuguese, Mexican and South American ingredients, enjoy a mad fun series of tastes at our favourite English butcher, then many tastes at a Lebanese bakery and emporium, visit a traditional Afghan bakery and grocery store before lunch at the acclaimed Rumi and gelato to finish at Zero Gradi. Too good! The best day out.

Includes coach transport, coffee, tastings and lunch.

Thank you so much for a wonderful day on Saturday. We all had a wonderful day touring around Melbourne in the comfortable coach and visiting all those lovely people and places. The food was amazing and little wonder with such passionate people preparing it. We have lived in Melbourne for nearly 20years now and had not visited any of the places we went to. We certainly will be going back to them though. Many of our family & friends are keen to join us too. It really was great to hear everyone’s stories as it brings the food to life.
Again, many thanks for your informative and fun way in which you led us around. It was a pleasure to meet you and the others on the safari - RC
Dear Suzy, ……. We had a great day on Saturday, the hospitality and passion at all the places we visited was so infectious. We ate till we dropped and we struggled home with our purchases like children who had been to the Melbourne show. Definitely a must do experience. Paula was a warm and knowledgeable host and we will be back for another trip. Maria A.
