Using local produce and meats, Australian chefs have successfully blended the flavors of Europe, Asia, the United States and the Middle East to create this highly successful cuisine. Each region is different, but you can taste such wonderful foods as Yum Cha, a Chinese dish featuring stuffed dumplings and meat or fish, pavlova a meringue dessert made with passion fruit or seasonal delights. Australians are famous for their world-renowned barbecues, so if you get a chance, don't pass one up.
Kangaroo meat is routinely served in many establishments.
Vegetarian diets are common to find. People observing religious restrictions on their diet will be able to find within the cities special butchers as well as restaurants that cater to their desire. Once they travel outside to the remote areas they may experience difficulty locating specific foods. You are not allowed to smoke in public restaurants, nor are you allowed to drink alcoholic beverages out in public on the many transit systems.
