The food of Australia has been influenced by the countries of Europe. Meat pie is very popular in Australia. Australians like to watch football with meat pie. They also love fish & chips. Their culture of foods is based in England.
Vegemite, which is a vegetable paste, is a very popular food in Australia. Vegemite is commonly eaten at breakfast, and its feature is its unique taste. Likes and dislikes divide clearly, just like in other countries, as in the case of Japanese "natto."
However, the most popular food in Australia is the beef called Aussie beef. Australians love to eat it as BBQ. Australians like meat very much, including eating kangaroo and crocodile meat.
If I can go to Australia, I want to have a BBQ with many people. And I want to eat many kinds of meats.
