Australian Food Culture

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.

Someone named Keita has given troll comments to all of these o_O. But they're clearly not a native English speaker, so....

Any way, unfortunately this is not really Australia's food culture, although you can get all those food items here. But it's a good try. I suggest you come here and try our real food some day. Have you eaten lamb? Lamb is more popular than beef in Australia. It's good :)

Thanks, Yasuaki.

I've often heard of Vegemite, but have never tasted it.

And now, thanks to you, I am once again very curious and wish to try it sometime.

And of course, we already know how famous Aussie beef is in Japan. I once had some very delicious and SOFT Aussie beef jerky. American jerky tends to be a little tough.

Thanks for your interesting story...
