Investigate the renaissance of American food culture in Melbourne and experience the rich cultural heritage shared between Australia and the United States. Discover a secret bar where the American tradition of pinball has been in place since 1869. Visit the oldest hamburger stand in Australia and sample some of their varieties before learning how food gets from the farm to the plate in many of the city's restaurants at Queen Victoria Market. Learn how the markets aren’t just for tourists; this is where many locals shop and restaurants stock their kitchens. Through a combination of walking and taking iconic Melbourne trams, explore classic American food and the history of the dishes and the venues. This carb-loaded tour includes bagels, burgers, sweet treats and a trip to a hipster neighbourhood to sample Philly cheesesteaks. Visit a classic diner, serving up that most classic of American meals, the hamburger. Your guide will tell you how the bagel came from Europe to America and on to Melbourne and you’ll sample some genuine New York-style bagels. The final stop in Fitzroy is known for its authentic Philly cheesesteaks and its range of craft beers. Hear how cheesesteaks were accidentally invented while you are eating them, and perhaps indulge in a speciality beer (at your expense). There’s always at least four tastings along the way and you are guaranteed not to leave hungry. Fitzroy is where many of Melbourne's trends start and one of the best places for street art, coffee, vintage fashion and all things hipster. Walk off your lunch checking out Smith and Brunswick streets after the tour.
