Northbridge and the CBD are absolutely teaming with fantastic food and drink these days!
From Asian street food to the small bar scene, delicious Italian baked goods, delectable handmade chocolates and loads more in-between, it’s an amazing mixture of new, exciting venues and established local institutions that are not to be missed.
The only problem is that unless you know exactly where to look you can walk right by some amazing things without even knowing that they exist! Luckily for you our City Secrets Foodie Adventure is on hand to point them out for you.
We’ll guide you up and down the backstreets and alleyways of the area in search of the best nosh in town. Throw in a dash of cultural history and a sprinkling of local information and insight and you’re bound to leave with your mind, body and soul happy and well fed.
Like all our tours, Food Loosers buy their own food along the way. This is all part of sharing and interacting with your fellow food lovers. Food costs are about $20 per person on the City Secrets Adventure (but please bring extra if you’d like to buy a few drinks along the way). Please bring small notes and coins to make settling our bills as we go a whole lot easier.
"This was an excellent and inexpensive way to explore Northbridge. The 4 hour walking food tour was given by an very knowledgeable foodie that didn't take you to stuffy expensive restaurants but to quirky, pockets of excellence throughout Northbridge and central Perth. A great way to see the city through the eyes of the locals with an incredible guide - this is one of the highlights of our visit to Western Australia. And, of course, the food was excellent!" - Macaveo (TripAdvisor Review)
"I've never been on a walking tour before so myself and 2 friends decided to do one. Our Guide was really friendly and knowledgeable!! The venues were great and we found out so much more about our beautiful city...Thanks so much! Will definitely recommend to friends!" - Tracey Shaw (TripAdvisor Review)
