One of the best experiences when travelling is certainly all the food that you get to try. You can learn more about the culture from it, try something that is not specific for your country’s cuisine, and experiment with tastes and flavours. However, during your trip, getting food can turn into such a dilemma, so this time, we are talking about how to follow the food trail in Australia.
The easiest and the most comfortable solution is to eat in restaurants. First of all, you get to enjoy, relax, and indulge, which is nice to do, especially when travelling. You can opt for many different ones, and try various cuisines. Except for making a reservation, you don't have to go through any trouble, which is convenient when travelling. Besides, you can always stop and check out any restaurant you like along the way. Some of the best-reviewed restaurants you can try are Quay, Attica, Momofuku Seibo, Vue de Monde, and many others.
Most of our travels include a lot of sightseeing, and day and nighttime activities. All this can easily wear you out, so it is no surprise you won't feel like dressing up, and going somewhere to eat. Instead, you can order food from professional catering companies which offer a variety of dishes. Besides the regular breakfast, lunch, and dinner menu, there is something for vegans, as well as organic and gluten-free food, so you don't have to go looking for restaurants that have that in their offer. Besides that, you can order different drinks like water, coffee, healthy juices made from lemon, ginger, pear, and spinach, which is a great option if you have to stick to a certain dietary regimen. Sit back in your tracksuit, and eat delicious food while watching TV.
For all of you who have an adventurous spirit, don't mind the crowd, and want to feel the true local atmosphere, we recommend going to a food market. You can find so many different foods and drinks including fresh, seasonal fruits and vegetables, spices, freshly squeezed juices, fish, as well as specialities from all over the world. Another plus is that you will have so much fun in the colourful markets, you'll get to meet and see how the locals live, and maybe even try some of the traditional dishes like chicken parmigiana, meat pies, pavlova, and barramundi.
Cook for yourself
If you want a more budget-friendly option, and you have enough time, you can cook for yourself, which can turn out to be lots of fun. The only thing you need to check is if your hotel room has everything you need to make the dishes. This is especially important for people who have a strict diet, or for people with small children. It can also be a good option for couples who want to have a homecooked romantic meal during their travel. However, do opt for dishes that don't take a lot of time to make, because you want to enjoy Australia as much as you can, and not only from your hotel room.
A lot of travel destinations offer excursions where you get to meet the culture, history, and tradition. When a country has so much to offer as Australia does, it is logical they have food tours as well where you can try different dishes. There is something for everyone. A Sydney gourmet tour includes wine and chocolate tasting, so all of you who enjoy delicate tastes can enjoy it. Tastes of Chinatown will take you to Japan, China, Malaysia, and the Philippines. If you like a little education with your meals, the Chef-led Hunter Valley gourmet food tour is for you because you will get to see the whole process of preparing a meal, from the farm until the moment it gets on your plate. If you like to experiment and try something new, you can enjoy many Australian delicacies as well.
Many people say that one of the reasons they love travelling so much is that they can experience the culture by eating delicious food. Some of the widely known specialities and restaurants are something you don't want to miss, especially when in Australia. However, know that you can order in delicious food when you feel like staying in and resting.
