Australian Cuisine

Creativity in Australian Cuisine Makes It Unique

People who live in Australia are known for their love of food but during the early times, Australian cuisine was just too ordinary. Pies, rum, teas and some dishes that had kangaroo or emu were served by many. Australian cuisine then evolved during the 19th and 20th, influenced by immigrants.

Nowadays, foods in Australia are said to be one of the best in the world simply because of the location of the country. Fruits and vegetables are really fresh because of the cold climate. Seafoods are really fantastic because Australia is located on the Indian Ocean. This is also true regarding the freshness of the meat of the lamb, kangaroo, beef, etc.

Authentic foods are served to amaze tourists. These include the emu, kangaroo and shark. However, typical Australian food is also available. One of the most famous is the Australian meat pie, which is very salable and can be found in any region of the country. Some regions have also their own specialties.

Some think that the best thing about Australian chefs is that they are fond of experimenting. Instead of doing the same recipe everyday, they would experiment on another, which would be weird for some.

The taste can no longer be understood and worse, the dish will land being thrown. However, a lot of people still appreciate the experimental foods in Australia. Chefs in Australia are really creative because they have the luxury of resources and they come up with ideas from other countries of the world.

Langham Hotel Melbourne review

Australia is for sure a tourist’s paradise and that is why I went to that place last month with my family and stayed in Langham Hotel Melbourne. I am still missing the time which I spend in this wonderful hotel having world class arrangement for all its guests.

Langham Hotel

One of the exclusive features of this beautiful hotel is the fitness center where I worked out on the advanced equipments, such as tread mills and prevented the weight gain trouble which is usually noticed in vacation times.

View from Langham Hotel

The fitness center includes a sauna and steam room in which the guests like me can pamper their body after a tiring yet invigorating session of exercise. Other attractive features of this hotel are the recreational facilities, such as swimming pool and Jacuzzi which turned my residence in that hotel a memorable one. I enjoyed the awe inspiring natural views of skyline and river from the city view rooms of this hotel.

I was also having some business purposes in Australia and that is why I choose this hotel for stay as it includes a business center where I utilized business services, such as internet access, translation services, secretarial services and audio visual equipment availability for business purposes. I arranged a grand party on my daughter’s birthday in the personal meeting room of this hotel which easily accommodated my 360 guests.

We got the most delectable dining experience of our lives by getting into this hotel, including fine dining sites that include about 15 restaurants located near to this beautiful hotel. I rejuvenated my body by enjoying the spa services offered to the guests in this beautiful hotel.

Queen Victoria market

The freshly renovated luxury day spa in this hotel includes steam and sauna rooms, geisha bars, chuan and Asian influence. Residing in this hotel was a wise decision from shopping point of view as this hotel is near to several shopping venues, such as the Southgate Shops and Queen Victoria Market.
