Food bloggers have been asking me to take them for a tour of my home town, Cabramatta.  Well finally it’s going to happen.  I’ve put together a unique tour just for foodies. The Cabra Crawl food tour for Sydney food bloggers includes:

  • shopping: buy some of the freshest produce in Sydney
  • Cabramatta landmarks: see some of Sydney’s most famous landmarks
  • food: a progressive eating tour that takes in 5 different food places in Cabramatta, showcasing the best in Vietnamese food. Some food will be familiar, others will be new…

Plus, you’ll get a behind the scene tour of Cabramatta and meet some of the people responsible for the best Vietnamese food in Sydney.

About Cabramatta

A suburb that is south west of Sydney, Cabramatta. Here, almost one in three were born in Vietnam, the largest concentration of Vietnamese born residents in Australia.  Once with a troubled past, Cabramatta and the community have transformed the suburb into one of Sydney’s top food capitals.

Last month, the Sydney Morning Herald’s Everyday Eats 2012 crowned John Street, Cabramatta as Sydney’s Favourite Eat Street.

CONGRATULATIONS to the food bloggers going on the Cabra Crawl!

Due to the overwhelming number of responses to the Cabra Crawl tour for Sydney Food Bloggers, I’ve had to do a random draw.
