Chinatown Discovery Tour
Fully guided half day food tour through Chinatown, Northbridge - discover the flavour of Asia in your own backyard!
The original and best tour of Chinatown, fully escorted by The Queen of Northbridge! Pauline started this tour in 2001 and she is still passionate about "her baby". The Chinatown Discovery Tour introduces you to all types of Asian food, from intriguing Chinese ingredients like sea cucumbers and chicken feet, to the freshest greens, herbs, fish, meat, poultry and noodles for everyday home cooking. Step into the shops and discover what you can't see from the street as we explore the amazing variety of Asian products right on Perth's doorstep.
We start our tour at Lucky Import and Export in Brisbane St, a Vietnamese family-owned store which has a wonderful range of foods from all over Asia and some hard-to-find herbs. After leaving Lucky's with a taste treat in hand we make our way along William St to visit VHT, probably THE largest Asian supermarket in Western Australia. Discover "noodle alley", the Japanese aisle and find the best range of dim sum, wantons and fish balls to take home. Find some rare vegetables such as lotus root and Chinese yam (also known as mung quong and jicama). This place is always abuzz!
Also on route is Wing Hong Butchers, where you will be amazed at the range of fresh meat and poultry as well as the special discoveries in the freezers.
Further on we visit a Chinese bakery to sample some delicious fare - pineapple and coconut bun is a must-try. We follow this with a welcome cup of Chinese tea at Zen Objects.
A taste of mouth-watering bbq pork is next on the menu, before finishing our tour with a delicious noodle lunch.
