If there is one thing that almost all of us look forward to when travelling, it’s the fact that for the majority of the time, at least, we don’t have to cook anything. Vacation is the perfect time to indulge in the fine dining of the neighborhood or a good ole fashioned, huge greasy burger.
Either one makes the trip all that more exciting and we usually take the privilege of overindulging, at that. Australia holds many opportunities to try new cuisine, be catered to with good home cooking, or branch out to other countries’ specialties while cruising the outback. Here are just a few of them.
One of the most visited sites in Australia is the Sydney Opera House. The home of impeccable sound is also now the home of impeccable food. The Quay restaurant is located in the Sydney Opera House allowing visitors a panoramic view of the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbor. You may find the prices a little steep, but the menu speaks for itself and quite a few celebrities agree.
From Oprah Winfrey to Rihanna, you may just spot your hero at the table across from you. Everything included is all natural and put together with amazing artistry. They also claim ability to cater to most any dietary need. When you consider all that this restaurant entails with the view, food, service, and romantic atmosphere, there may not be too many destinations higher on your itinerary.
If you prefer a little trip into history, like famous country singer, Keith Urban and professional swimmer, Lisa Curry do, Queensland, Australia is the place you want to be. It is home to the original Aboriginal Settlement, a European settlement circa 1600’s, and eventually was separated from New South Wales in 1859 by none other than Queen Victoria, herself.
Only a short 29 years down the road, one of the best restaurants in Australia was created, The Royal. Home to great Italian food and the perfect place to get a stiff drink, The Royal has created a little slice of Italy in the heart of Brisbane. Anyone is invited, even the kiddos. There are regular events and if you’re in the mood for a little gambling, there is a Pokies room downstairs adjoining the venue.
Rockpool Bar and Grill
When the Kardashian Clan is in the mood for steak, they take a breather here, the Rockpool Bar and Grill. The Kardashians are in the Melbourne area frequently. Check out the Rockpool Bar and Grill and you may get a glimpse of stardom. Rockpool took the popularity of the North American steakhouse and made it their own. Choosing nothing but the finest beef Australia has to offer, this restaurant takes the opportunity to mix fine dining with a relaxing family atmosphere.
They also offer some of the finest wines to accent the amazing cuts of beef offered. There are wine tasting events catered for the most avid of tasters. Rockpool also offers a much wider menu including seafood and fresh salads and other produce to decorate the reputation of this fine place to eat.
If you share Australia as your destination of choice, rest assured you will never run out of good choices for fine dining with the stars.
