Culinary Australia Takes on the World

Australia has long been famed for its natural beauty, but these days its culinary credentials are taking the world by storm and are well worth checking out. And now, a pop-up restaurant in London’s Australia House is showcasing the best of what’s on offer and gives diners a chance to win a wonderful holiday Down Under.

 

Australia has moved way beyond its gastronomic roots with influences from around the world impacting the range of tastes to savour. Seafood is a huge part of the local diet (four out of five Aussies live within 50km of the coast) and Asian influences have mingled with traditional European offerings to create a melting pot of foodie delight. In a recent poll in Elite Traveller Magazine, no less than five Australian restaurants made the world’s top 100 list.

 

To celebrate this culinary Aussie renaissance, we are sharing our favourite Australian restaurants - and the first drink’s on us.


Sydney

Visit Sydney’s Iceberg Dining Room & Bar

Visit Sydney’s Iceberg Dining Room & Bar perched on the cliff overlooking Bondi Beach and we’ll give you two drinks on the house. The world-class Italian fare is exquisite, the décor exudes relaxed elegance and the panoramic views are a delight. There are some great fish and seafood options of course such as Roasted Hapuka, olive oil poached fennel, smoked eel & black truffle sauce as well as pasta, gnocchi and a delicious-sounding 150-day Black Angus rib-eye steak.

 

If you’re staying in Sydney, here are some suggestions https://www.dialaflight.com/hotels/australia/sydney/

 

Brisbane
Brisbane

For a slightly off the wall option, how about The Bearded Lady in Brisbane? This quirky bar has a twenties, vaudeville vibe and features live music and poetry in the evenings. The stripped-back interior with its clap-board and tiled walls and beaten-up bar looks as though it may have grown organically, but the range of boutique beers on offer will soon take your mind off the room. Visit and tell them “I love hairy women” and there’s a free jug of beer in it for you.

Melbourne/St Kilda
St Kilda

Lastly, how about a visit to Sydney’s big rival, Melbourne? In such a cosmopolitan city, you simply have to sample some Asian fare and Uncle whilst genuinely Vietnamese is not earnestly so. They will serve you steak with chilli and coconut butter or pate with rice crackers just to prove they are unashamedly Aussie and are even brewing their own beer – what could be more Australian than that? It’s got an airy, pine-laden café feel and is located in St Kilda right on the tramline. There’s a free glass of wine or tap-beer on the house when you call.

If you’re heading Down Under, it’s good to see as much as possible, rather than just stay in one place. At the moment, you can book a flight to Australia with Etihad and receive up to two FREE internal flights using the Skypass. https://www.dialaflight.com/flights/australia/
