What is the food like in Australia?

When we think of Australia, we think of throwing another shrimp on the Barbie, but although they do love their BBQ’s with plenty of snags (sausages) and meat on them, the Aussies also like a wide variety of food and here are some dishes not to miss!

Keeping on the meat eaters path you could be brave and try some kangaroo? A lean meat that is known for being one of the healthiest meats around! But be prepared to eat it blue, as kangaroo can be as chewy as a boot if it is cooked more than rare. Locals and those that have ventured to try it say the closest comparison is beef.

For those with a large appetite you’ll want to try the fully loaded burger. Think of a burger copiously laden with meat, sauce and salad. Now add a ring of pineapple, pickled beetroot and top it off with a freshly fried egg!

For the white meat eaters we have Chicken parmigiana – a lighter, more well-known dish of Italian origin, or Barramundi - Grilled, fried or seared, it’s a much healthier substitute to battered fish and chips, and a true Aussie favourite

Vegetarians can enjoy a slice of vegemite on toast – don't worry, there are lots of other vegetarian friendly dishes for you to eat in Australia – dishes include mushroom sliders, Eggplant Parmigiana, Pumpkin and ricotta quesadillas, Plant based BBQ’s and much more

For those with a sweet tooth, the Aussies favour pavlova and Lamingtons, sponges dipped in chocolate and covered in coconut – yum yum!

For the adventurous, you can do as the indigenous do and try a Witchetty Grub! The first Australian indigenous tribe have eaten these little fellers for years. They’re supposed to taste like chicken and contain as much protein as an entire piece of steak!
