Six fabulous local cafes and restaurants in four hours
If you like food and if you like walking, then The Adelaide Feast walking food tour by Feast on Foot is just the thing for you. You will experience the flavours of Adelaide as you wind your way around the city. You will also see some of its quirky street art and learn about some of its interesting history.
There are two options for this 4-hour walking food tour - either 'tour only' or 'all inclusive'. The 'tour only' option is $25 per person and you get to choose your own food during the tour and buy accordingly as you wish on the day. The 'all inclusive' option is $69 per person and includes all food on a set menu during the tour with you having to pay nothing more on the day. I was feeling adventurous at the time and decided to go choosing my own food.
We met our host in front of The Stag Hotel on Rundle Street at 10am as instructed. After some introductions and formalities, we began the tour with a very nice comforting cup of hot chocolate from a local chocolatier. We then proceeded to five other sumptuous delights including Middle Eastern, Japanese and Vietnamese food. I won't give too much away so as not to spoil the fun for you. However, you can be rest-assured that all of the six locations are fabulous local cafes and restaurants serving up food made with carefully chosen local ingredients. We also had the opportunity to hear firsthand from some of the owners who shared their food stories with us.
It was an amazing experience and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. We were all very full by the end of the tour. I personally had no room for dinner that night. It is usually advisable not to have too big of a breakfast before the tour, and I would agree, there is a lot of food. I have no problems recommending The Adelaide Feast Walking Food Tour to anyone interested in food and walking. Looking forward to checking out their other tours one day.
