Middle Eastern food walking tour

Another fun walking food tour!

We have just done another of the ‘Taste Walking Food Tours’. In October it was the Taste of Asia food tour through Bankstown NSW, this time the Middle Eastern tour through Greenacre, NSW.

Led by Zizi, who introduced the group to many of the locals, we learnt and tasted our way through what seemed like a very quick 3 hours.

Such fun, very informative and great value!

The next tour on Saturday 16th October is Sugar & Spice and Saturday 20th November is World Fare.

Organised by the Benevolent Society, for information go to www.tastetours.org.au or call 1800 819 633.

Take a look at some of the highlights of the Middle Eastern tour, from the Lebanese grocery store to the Lebanese feast at the popular local restaurant and the mouth watering baklava and sweets.

Plenty of fresh vegetable at the local one-stop grocery store
