I’m about to head off to Australia for 3 weeks! I’ve been wanting to go for ages, so it’s pretty exciting to have this trip crossed off on my bucket list. If you’d like to follow along, I’ve created a travel blog here.
One thing I learned while researching about the place is how crazy expensive food is. Fish and chips can set you back $19 and a cocktail can be $15. Minimum wage is about $16/hr so that explains quite a bit.
Here’s a list of food places I plan on visiting:
– Fishmonger’s for fish and chips.
– Quay. Rated one of the top 50 restaurants in the world. (rated number 29) I booked this first before my plane ticket. I lucked out on getting a reservation as it books out months in advance. They’re famous for their snow egg.
– Din Tai Fung for dumplings. Apparently the place to go for the best dumpling experience. The restaurant is originally from Taiwan and they’ve expanded to other places. The amount of pleats in a dumpling shows skill as the dough is thin and can easily tear.
And I have to try Gelato Messina, voted as Australia’s best gelato place.
If there’s time, the exotic fuit tasting tour in Cape Tribulation sounds like a great experience.
See you in a few weeks!by
