Meet your guide in central Melbourne to embark on your 3-hour evening walking tour of the city's best dumplings. Along the way, you’ll learn some of the history of Melbourne and pick up great tips about the city’s culinary scene.
The doughy dish is one of Melbourne’s favorite foods, one that comes in a range of flavors and styles depending on the origins of the chefs. Starting in the 1850s, people came from many different parts of China to Melbourne, bringing their regional cuisines with them.
As you visit four dumpling houses with your expert foodie guide, hear stories about the chefs and cuisine that each place features. Expect to walk about one mile (1.5 km) at a leisurely pace with four seated stops to sample shared plates of delicious dumplings, all handmade on-site.
Use chopsticks or a fork to dig into the dumplings that your guide orders, comparing the flavors and sauces in between bites. One venue features Melbourne’s hottest chili sauce; try it if you dare. You’ll sample a variety of different styles that you get to vote on at the end of your tour.
The informative and relaxed style of the tour promotes a friendly atmosphere and adds up to a decent meal. It’s a great way to spend an evening in Melbourne; even locals report that they learned about new places visited on this tour.
At the end of a delicious and fascinating 3-hour tour, say farewell to your guide in central Melbourne and make your own way to your next destination.
