I’d like to take a moment to thank the genius who invented food tours. If you already know a city like the back of your hand, it’s the perfect way to navigate a neighborhood you may not frequent. Alternatively, if you only have a few days to explore, what could be better than eating your way through a new city?
I recently had the privilege of experiencing a night at the Intercontinental Sydney followed by a tour around Sydney’s inner west with the great team from Ultimate Sydney. Where do I start on this adventure? The luxurious nights’ accommodation springs to mind as a great place to begin!
FORGET the bronzed, beach-ready likes of Lara Bingle. The new face of Australian tourism is likely to be a silver-haired 60-something doling out souvlaki from his neighbourhood butcher’s shop, or a business-minded Vietnamese immigrant doing a brisk line in banh mi.
On the outskirts of a throbbing Sydney city, pockets of gourmet finds pepper the Inner West. Your key to navigating the melting pot of boutique finds is the team at Ultimately Sydney who have been guiding groups of up to 14 people to its most delicious spots for six years.
