Australian Favourite Dishes – Discovering the Treats of Australia

If you are wondering what Australian food exactly is, prepare to be surprised at how much this nation calls its own. This holiday give your taste buds a treat with a lovely range of Australian dishes.

Hamburgers with Beetroot

Hamburgers with Beetroot

Now this is one Australian twist to burgers that practically redefines burgers altogether. Offering a delightful flavour, burgers with beetroot is really something unusual to experience. Australian beef has a unique taste to it and top this with some beetroot and voila, you have got yourself a one of a kind hamburger. In fact did you know that hamburgers with beetroot are so delicious that not too far in the past Ronald McDonald actually considered making a Mc Oz? However what you get at fast food outlets will never match up to the stuff you can eat at a local takeaway joint or a pub. It really is so good. If you are looking for an Aussie version of hamburger from a joint near one of the serviced apartments in Sydney CBD better stay at such options as Oaks Hyde Park Plaza for BL Burgers and all its Aussie goodness is just a short distance away.

Green Chicken Curry Pie

Green Chicken Curry Pie

Cultural diversity in Australia has made locals grow fond of South East Asian flavours. Thai food is probably a favourite on this list. However Australians seem to have trouble sticking to the conventional style of Thai food despite how much they love the flavours. So since they very obviously love pies they decided to put a green chicken curry cooked Thai style inside a pie casing and call it a Green Chicken Curry Pie. Now this is definitely 100% Australian!

Fantales

Fantales

With the savouries topping the list one cannot oversee the number of sweat treats that Australians are famous for creating. If you have spotted the yellow and blue wrapping at a local grocery store, fantales are the culprit. This favourite Australian sweet is made up of a tiny blob of chewy caramel that is coated all over by a rich and smooth milk chocolate. Fantales have been around for a while now and pretty much every child in the country would have come across this one.

Lamington

Lamington

More for those with a sweet tooth, lamington is a delicious dessert that has earned the title of 'National Cake of Australia'. This square shaped sweet treat is actually made out of a sponge cake that is dipped in chocolate and left to dry. Sprinkled with desiccated coconut this is one sweet you are bound to fall in love with.

Pavlova

Pavlova

There has been a constant battle going both ways on where Pavlova belongs to. Australians would say that it is theirs and New Zealanders will claim the same. But to decorate our list here we'll side with the former statement! Pavlova is a heavenly dessert that is created out of meringue and generously topped with whipped cream and fruit. With a crispy crusty outer layer and a soft and creamy inside this one definitely is a winner.
