Bundaberg?

Saxby's Ginger beer is pretty good in Australia too. Bundaberg are more famous for their rum than Ginger beer but both work well together. The rum is also good with Dry and Lime.

Nov/Dec in Christchurch - where to eat ?

I just went to the Pegasus Bay Winery and Restaurant on the weekend and was most impressed by the food. It is about 45 minutes out of Christchurch but it's well worth the trip.

I've added the place in with a link below. Local Kiwis might have more on the local knowledge of this place as I was visiting from Australia.

Best Meat Pie in Australia?

Other people here might correct me if I'm wrong but I think Hannah's is the supplier to Harry's. They make a great pie.

Best Meat Pie in Australia?

Bakeries in the country seem to produce Australia's finest. Though I did travel to Harry's this week for a cheeky pie. Will put it in my places in my next post

Best Meat Pie in Australia?

Having seen the recent post about the best burgers in Sydney I thought it was time to open a can of worms with the topic "Who makes the best meat pies in Australia"?

If you're Australian you'll know how passionate some people will be on this topic. If you're from overseas, then you need to bookmark this topic and when you get down this way go Chowhounding for this great Aussie icon.

Places test - BreadTop @ World Square - Sydney

When you go to reply to a topic (or create a new one) is there a link at the bottom right of the box saying "link to a place-beta"?

From there you can put in a name of a place with it's location (it works with Google maps). If it's in the database you can edit an existing place. If it's not (which I don't think many Australian ones are right now) you can add your own place from scratch.

Let me know how you get on and hopefully I can help further.

Places test - BreadTop @ World Square - Sydney

The new Places feature is live and this is a test:

I'm a fan of Breadtop, the asian bakery chain across Sydney (and Melbourne I think). I'll start a place to test this new feature and see how well other Australians can start filling out other restaurant places.

Food around South Yarra/Melbourne

Is Rockpool owned by the same restaurant owners in Sydney?

Australian Foods??

Roo meat okay. It's pretty cheap too and uncomfortably close to the pet food section in the supermarket :-)

Australian Foods??

I'd second Meat Pies (Pot pies they call them in the USA I think). If you can find them Sausage Rolls too.

Lamington's could be a good dessert too.

Food around South Yarra/Melbourne

Hi folks,
I'm heading down to Melbourne this week and wondering what's around South Yarra to eat? I don't know my way around Melbourne and open to all cuisines.

Also, if there is anything new and notable around the city any tips would be welcome too.

Thanks in advance.

Chocolate in Sydney (or perhaps wider)

I might be showing my age here but does a restaurant called "Death by Chocolate" still exist?

"American Food"

I'm familar with the Chilli in a bread bowl..like con carne.

I think I know what you are talking about though...the US use Chilli sauce which is different to the Chilli sauce in Australia. I found it really hard to find sweet chilli over in the US a year or so ago.

Buffalo Wings in New Zealand?

Buffalo Wings in New Zealand and Australia that are the same as the US are rare. They are never as hot and as you said above cannot do blue cheese.

"American Food"

Things I miss about American food:
* Burgers (the beef is somewhat different to oz burgers) -- i'm not talking fast food burgers here.
* Onion Rings
* Mexican Food (it's mostly poor in Australia)
* Ben and Jerry's "Chunky Monkey"
* Chilli in a bread bowl
* Ranch Dressing
* BBQ Saunce (it's different)

Favourite Aussie Food bloggers?

I'm on the lookout for some good Aussie Food bloggers. What's everyone's favourites out there (or do you have one?)

This might be a good place to start: http://pub38.bravenet.com/sitering/sh...?

BreadTop Melbourne.. review...

There are quite a few BreadTop shops in Sydney. In fact, there is one too close to my office at World Square! The Chicken Mushroom Doughnut and Taro bun are two of my favourites.

Funny enough there is another shop like BreadTop but under another name that has a bun called "The Big Butt that will Not Lie". Maybe I'll do a review of this particular bun...

Sydney near Rocks area

What's wrong with a good meat pie?

Minto, I'd suggest going down to Doyles near your hotel. It's got a nice view of the harbour and seafood is good. Besides that I can't think of much else off the top of my head. Most of the really good restaurants are derived from the cuisines you don't want to eat...

Sydney near Rocks area

You'd maybe need to be more specific on what "ethnic" food you don't like -- Sydney has a great range of tasty food derived from many regions of the world.
