They have french fries which taste real good. The fries from Red Rooster fast food restaurant have thick and good texture but too salty. Lord of the fries is common here too, but I find their fries average.. Speaking of fast food, in Aussie, Hungry Jack's is the same as Burger King. But why is it not called Burger King? I have always wondered. So now talking about food in this post, I wikipediaed it and this is what I found :
" Australia is the only country in which Burger King does not operate under its own name. When the company set about establishing operations down under in 1971, it found that its business name was already trademarked by a takeaway food shop in Adelaide. "
Sou desu ne...
And except for Mac breakfast, I will never really want to eat MacDonald for lunch or dinner in Aussie because... their burger is so dry...The bread and the chicken meat... I think the people like to eat breast meat here.... and no chilli sauce or tomato sauce is given! And expensive too.
But one thing I like about Aussie is their Jap sushi roll! It comes in one big roll and they sell it for about $2.30 on average. Me and my girlfriends always visit a stall outside Melbourne central which sells them for $2 only. Sometimes in Melbourne central basement there is offer on the sushi rolls like 2 boxs (total 8) for $8 or $10 when they are closing shop. My favourites are tamago (egg) and california and tuna rolls! They all come with a cute fish plastic tube for the soy sauce. ^o^
Okay another recommendation is Pancake Parlour at Melbourne Central! I'm not a Pancake lover.. But if you happen to be one I think you should try this atas restaurant for their raved pancakes...
Another place I went before with friends is this Passionflower ice-cream parlour ... Atas place but interesting!
Alcoholic drinks like wine and beer are cheap cheap cheap. They have their own beer here called Victoria Bitter. Just like Singapore got Tiger Beer. But I'm not really a alcoholic person so all beers to me are the same. But soft drinks can be very expensive. AUD$3.60 for a small bottle of Coke. Of course if you buy from the right places still get good and cheap deals. Melbourne is famous for coffee also, which is very sad for me because I don't know how to appreciate coffee. But I did learn to drink a bit of coffee here due to the need for caffine sometimes in school! So I drink Mocha which has chocolate added to the coffee.
