About Taste Tours
Taste Tours is a social enterprise and charity which offers cultural food tours in the diverse suburbs and town centres of Sydney, as well as in the CBD. All tours are led by local guides, who share their secrets on the best places to eat and shop for authentic dishes and ingredients. Every tour includes tastings in-stores, cafes and restaurants, more than enough for lunch. We show you the sights and tell you all the local stories. All our profits are re-invested into tour guide training and employment for under or unemployed people to support them into the career path of their choice. Trainees are newly arrived migrants or refugees, or young people.

A fantastic tour through Sydney's Chinatown district. As locals we typically stick to the few favs, so this was a great way to explore some less obvious/known places. It was good to do it with another couple from the Sunshine Coast (out of towners). We had a great tour guide, Tirian, who shared insights about the 6 or so places we visited. He also has a wealth of asian cultural awareness and experiences (for a young guy) that he openly shared. Highly recommend and we will definitely be doing other tours in the future!

What an absolute delight exploring Merrylands and sampling delicious Persian, Afghani and Syrian food. Alla and Ezzy gave us a wonderful insight into the cultural significance of each dish and guided us through the various supermarkets. Our two families included six children in their twenties. We all loved our time on the tour. We are planning another Taste Food Tour soon.

Our son & his partner gave us this tour for Christmas 2019, so it was eagerly awaited through the interstate lockdown. We finally made it to Sydney & thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Christie was very knowledgeable about the Chinese history in Australia the buildings around Chinatown & also the food from different Asian countries we enjoyed eating. After hearing of the different types of noodles, hotpots & chilli or pepper heat of more dishes, we’ll be back to try them. The tour is over 3 hours & we tried Malaysian rendang beef, Korean spring onion chicken, a Chinese Tea Ceremony (our favourite) Chinese homemade noodles with chicken & veg, finished with lychee gelato. Abbie at the Chinese Tea Ceremony was terrific. She prepared a delicious green tea & told us about its origins & how to prepare it. Our guide Christie was fabulous. Thank you for all of the stories, I enjoyed them all. Find out why Chinese people tap two bent fingers after tea is poured for them. I highly recommend this tour. We’ll try one of the others another trip down.
