Tasty Tours: Good Eats in Australia

That's right, I was lucky enough to go to Sydney last week! It was amazing, beautiful, and ridiculously expensive. I saw a Caesar salad that cost $25! Granted, the exchange rate reduces that, but only slightly.
Here are some of the tastier meals I had:
Prosciutto and rocket pizza -- It didn't taste like what I expected, but I love having my salad on my pizza!
Lamb shank -- There was this nice little lounge near my hotel called Oscar's that had nice dinner specials. For example, on Sunday, I got a steak and ale with mashed potatoes and a salad for $12. This meal was $15 with a glass of house red. And I really liked the red too!
There were a few food habits that I found very interesting in Australia. First, bread for sandwiches are buttered and dusted with salt and pepper before any other condiments are added. Ketchup, even Heinz, tastes sweeter and more 'earthly,' maybe with nutmeg or something added. You can get your French fries (chips) with regular or chicken-flavored salt.
Tasty food and a beautiful country!
