South Bank Dessert

Walking Tour

Foodi tours is a Brisbane gem taking visitors and locals on a guided expedition to explore the greatest chocolate, dessert and craft beer spots around town. Their popular South Bank Dessert Walking Tour is a fun and fantastic food journey where the word ‘diet’ is not to be spoken for the 2.5 to 3 hours duration.

Wearing a Foodi t-shirt, the sociable guide leads large numbers in and around South Bank for an ultra sweet, decedent and indulgent experience that has participants wanting to do it all over again. 

The guide talks of as much history as possible before entering every experience, such as the beginnings of licorice and rhubarb as a sweet food. The fun facts make for an enjoyable experience, especially when it can be related back to the food sitting before your eyes. However the majority of the tour is spent sitting and eating – which is the way it should be.

With opportunities to speak with the brains behind the dessert at selected venues, participants can find themselves picking up ideas for home cooking, or ideas to leave the dessert to the experts and plan for a return trip.

With each new food delight as a surprise, the South Bank Dessert Walking Tour is an exciting way to sample a range of different ingredients and flavours at a range of venues participants may have never tried before. The tour incorporates a mix of affordable and slightly more expensive yet unique and creative places, ensuring a great experience that can be relived on a moderate budget after the tour.

While the venues change regularly, one that is normally on the checklist is Nitrogenie with their the innovative ice cream techniques and to-die-for flavours. The lemon meringue is a highlight, tasting just like the pie itself.

Another venue that always pleases the sweet tooth is Chocolateria San Churro. Like every other dessert stop on the tour, the samples are endless and generous with hot and tasty churros, dark and white dipping sauces, milkshake samples (don’t leave without trying the strawberry) and chocolate ice cream.
