Best traditional Australian Dishes

Hi I am going on holiday to Melbourne next month. I was wondering what are the best Australian dishes that I should try?

Melbourne is very multi-cultural and has loads of good restaurants. You can get everything from Italian, Thai, Indian, Greek, Vietnamese, seafood etc etc. Not sure where you are coming from but Australia is currently closed to overseas tourists. Even within Australia, some state borders are still shut.

Apart from some odd critters, such as wichetty grubs, we don't really have Australian dishes.

Our cuisine is si diverse, with influences from just about every country, that Australian cuisine appears pretty much all fusion.

Today, mid-winter, Iím having :

Slow coked burgundy lamb shanks, truffle infused potato mash, broccolini.

With a glass of Victorian Pinot noir.
At an Irish tavern in Queensland.

Thatís about as traditional as Iíll get today.

And very nice it is too!

As a non-Australian who lived in Australia for seven years, when I think of "Australian food" I think fabulous fresh local produce, flat whites, fresh seafood, chilled sparkling Shiraz, lamb, melting moments, pavlova, vineyard platters, mango, marron, cake with fresh cream, sausage sizzles, creamy sharp cheeses, grilled venison chorizo, feta and Hallumi, eggs bennie, savory muffins, lovely wine...and Indian food!

Also things like hit and miss meat pies, fish and chips and various exotic items like Emu ham and kangaroo.

The food of Australia is diverse....and wonderful.

This needed your input. Those foods we mostly take for granted.

I'd love those eggs bennie right now!

Bill sorely misses Aussie Eggs Bennie. I'm not sure why, but proper Eggs Bennie are as rare as hen's teeth around here.
