Food tours to tantalise at Ramadan

Thousands of local residents and visitors have already flocked to Haldon Street Lakemba, since sunset Sunday, after it was turned into an Arabian bazaar for Ramadan Nights.

Visitors are being treated to plenty of food, and fun, including guided walking food tours on weekends.

Taste Cultural Food Tours Chief Executive Lesley Unsworth said Ramadan Nights is ‘vibrant, exciting and welcoming.’

"It’s a feast for the senses," she said.

"The food on offer for Iftar and through the night is not seen or found easily in cafes in Sydney.

"On your own you may feel nervous or overwhelmed by the crowds and you might miss the best food because it’s foreign to you, so I encourage visitors to book a tour," she said.

Some of the dishes include Murtabak (stuffed pancake), Syrian ice-cream, Mahalabia (milk dessert), Sahlab (pudding drink) and Haleem (stew).

"I enjoy being part of this important event, sharing food with my fellow Australians, and learning about their faith and stories," Ms Unsworth said.

The hour-long Saturday tours cost $40 per person and introduce visitors to the event, and include up to six tastings. Sunday tours run for two and a half hours and range in cost from $49-89. They delve deeper into Ramadan, Iftar and Muslim life, and include up to 10 tastings.

Ramadan Nights Lakemba is on every night until Thursday 6 June, with road closures on Saturday 11, 18 and 25 May and Saturday 1 June. A park and ride service is also available.
