I spent a year in Australia (and going for three more months in April!) and was pleasantly surprised at how amazing your Asian/Middle Eastern foods are. I hadn't eaten much before then as I come from a really small town in Canada and tend to eat more 'meat and potatoes' that we've grown/harvested/raised and processed ourselves. Now I just can't get enough of it! I've started to make it at home more and more. HahaYou'll find it on any pub menu too. But maybe that's what rong meant since pubs/motels are like one place sometimes, especially in the county towns. They're like inns. Also since we're close to Asia and have many immigrants you can expect to find a lot of Asian restaurants also Greek and Italian. And lots of kebab shops and Middle Eastern bakeries, oh and Indian. We don't really have much American or Canadian style restaurants (besides Americanised fast food places like Pizza Hut, McDonald's etc.) I mean places that serve like American ribs or mac n cheese etc.
Speaking of macaroni, I think my family cooks it different compared to most people. We use onion, bacon, capsicum, sometimes celery, mushrooms, chilli... cook that up and make the cheese sauce, and just mix it together. We use kraft cheese or just the normal cheese you buy in the shop which is quite different to the American orange cheddar. The other night when I made cheese sauce I put different cheeses in it and some mustard powder and herbs etc, it was awesome. For cauliflower cheese.
