From 'chucking another ‘chook’ on the barbie' to fine dining, you’ll find that food is something that Australians take very seriously. You’ll also find that, thanks to the superb climate and an abundance of fresh produce, most meals tend to be served al fresco, creating a savoury perfume of meats, fish and vegetables in certain parts of the city.
Lamb is by far the most popular meat in the country and you’ll find that traditional Australian dishes tend to be those such as roast lamb, meat pies and the ubiquitous barbecue. However, there is a burgeoning movement for haute cuisine and many of the best chefs favour the fresh seafood that is so abundant.
On your trip to Brisbane, you may find you sample dishes such as fresh tuna served with chilli and lime, grilled Moreton Bay prawns and vibrant vegetables from Lockyer Valley.
