It's no secret that Australians share common values with our neighbours across the Pacific. And now, Melburnians are embracing that culture with an American food renaissance. Join our Yankee guides and experience the rich cultural heritage taking hold in our city. Learn about American and Aussie barbecues’ shared heritage, and whatever you do, bring your appetite. Yee-haw!
We’ll get a farm-to-table lesson with a walk through the Queen Victoria Markets. You’ll learn how the markets aren’t just for tourists; this is where many local restaurants stock their kitchens.
The first eating stop on our Melbourne tour will be one of Australia’s a classic diner, serving up that most classic of American meals. You’ll sample some of their hamburger varieties before heading on to learn about how our food gets to the plate in many of Melbourne’s restaurants.
Your guide will then take you some of their favourite places at the cutting edge of the American food trend of cheesesteaks, mac 'n' cheese and low and slow smoked meats that is sweeping the city. There is always at least 4 tastings along the way and we guarantee you won't be leaving hungry.
We end the tour in the neighbourhood of Fitzroy, where many of Melbournne's trends start - and one of the best places for street art, coffee and all things hipster. Walk off your lunch checking out Smith and Brunswick streets is what most Melbournians wish they were doing too.
