Meet Melinda & Thomas
Hi there! We're Melinda & Thomas: food lovers, new parents, binge watchers and cat owners. After touring most of South East Asia and going on countless food tours in the process, we pondered the question of actually starting our own food tour right here in our home town, Vienna/Austria. Both of us have a deep passion for food, and we're also big fans of that beautiful place we get to call home. So in April 2016, we decided to combine those two things and introduce visitors to the city and its delicious food & drink.
Thomas grew up in Vienna’s 10th district - a true melting pot of all cultures, nationalities and cuisines - in between Turkish supermarkets, Eastern European restaurants and Viennese cafés, quickly developing a taste for exotic food as well as an interest in cooking traditional Austrian cuisine. Melinda has lived in 6 different Viennese districts over 10 years which made her acutely aware of the city's fast-changing appearance. Her love for onions, garlic and paprika comes from her Hungarian roots, which also equipped her with a high dosage of wanderlust and curiosity for other cultures. Together, they decided to combine all the interesting facts, figures, stories and anecdotes about Vienna, its food, people and culture into this food tour.
