Tour Description

There’s a lot more to inner-city Perth than meets the eye! Delicious morsels from different cuisines lie around almost every corner in Northbridge (if you know where to look that is). On our City Secrets Foodie Adventure, you’ll be taken on a journey of culinary discovery. Just be prepared to have your taste buds tingled and your mind blown!

Journey Of Culinary Discovery

Do you know the correct way to eat soup dumplings? How about what an Italian-style apple strudel is like? Ever tried an orange wine? You’ll learn all of this and more!

Delicious Food At Exciting Venues

At Food Loose, we’re obsessed with good food. We’ve taste-tested loads of venues and selected the most delicious, interesting and exciting ones for you to experience on our tours.

Expert Local Guide

All our tour guides have years and years of local knowledge. They’re passionate about Perth’s food & drink scene and can’t wait to share what they know with you!

Learn About The Rich Cultural History

All food is a reflection of history, so you’ll learn how the area’s rich and interesting history has shaped what ends up on your plate.

You could spend years eating your way around the inner city to identify the best places to eat and drink. You could also spend the same amount of time researching the rich cultural history of Northbridge and the CBD.

OR – you could join our City Secrets Foodie Adventure and experience it all in the one day! We’ve gone over-and-above to put together a unique selection of the areas best food – all you have to do is come along and enjoy the ride!

Like all Food Loose Tours, our adventurers buy their own food along the way. This is all part of sharing and interacting with your fellow food lovers. 

We estimate it will be no more than $30 in food costs per person (but please bring extra if you’d like to buy a few drinks along the way). 

Please bring small notes to make settling our bills as we go a whole lot easier. Please note that all our tours have a 48hr notice policy for rescheduling.

Reviews

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!
