About Us


Food Loose: Eating Adventures With a Difference

At Food Loose we like to have a good time, but we definitely take our food very seriously. Great food and drink isn’t just a job for us, it’s an obsession. That’s why we’re committed to providing the absolute best eating experiences and local knowledge around – anything less and we wouldn’t be able to look at ourselves in the mirror each day.

“Foodie Experts” not tour guides

When we’re not busy running tours chances are we’ll be spending our free time eating and drinking our way all over the city, forever on the hunt for the latest hot spot or next hidden treasure. This is why we refer to the people that run our tours as “Foodie Experts” rather than tour guides. In fact, we’re so committed to making sure that they’re constantly out and about searching for new and interesting taste sensations that we give them a weekly food exploration allowance. Feel free to ask questions and pick their brains while your on a tour with them, who knows what interesting tidbits you’ll pick up?

A real, authentic Perth eating and drinking experience

As born and bred Perth locals we’re intensely proud of our hometown and the fact that it now has a truly world class food and beverage scene. We just love showing to off to people! That’s why we only work with local, independently owned venues and vendors that are unique to Perth (we’ll never take you to a chain, franchise or anything owned by a big, evil corporation). Helping the city to develop by supporting great local venues has and always will be a very important part of what we do.

Sharing is caring

Sharing food and experiences is a big part of what we do. Rather than just being lead around and talked at, our foodie adventures are all about interacting with your guide and fellow Food Loosers as you explore the sights, sounds and tastes of the city. We like to think of them less as walking tours and more as a bunch of friends getting together to share a laugh, loads of great food (and perhaps the odd drink or two).

Ambassadors for the city – our work with Tourism WA

As we said before, we truly believe that Perth now has a world class eating and drinking scene and we’re determined to help the rest of the world find out about it. As a leading local hospitality professional, our Foodie Expert Justin regularly works with Tourism WA to host visiting media from all over the world and show them around the best of what the city has to offer.
