A big element of moving overseas is embracing and appreciating the culture in your newfound homeland and obviously food and diet play a major role in this. We therefore thought it would be interesting to see what traditional Australian dishes or recipes have caught the eye of expats.

This may also prove a very useful way in which to save money as a number of members have mentioned the relatively high cost of some food products.

I like pavlova and Tim Tams. Haven't found any main dishes that are specifically Aussie that I like yet, but always looking.

My wife (who is Polish born Aussie citizen) eats a lot of curry.

Chicken Parma's (italian but adopted by AU) - beautiful when done right.
Pavlova - nice dessert
Anything with beetroot in (burgers especially) - they love to do this, quite nice imo
Kangaroo cooked correctly is delicious
Vegemite - a poor man's weaker Marmite in my opinion :P
ANZAC biscuits & Tim Tams

I live in the city and its very diverse - most Aussies will eat anything, can't say i've ever seen an 'Australian Restaurant' they love a mix of all cultures.
