We love good food, great produce and discovering new cafés, restaurants, and bistros! And as part of discovering a new city we love going out to eat.
Food is also a great reflection of a country´s culture. In Australia you can find amazing fresh produce and Aussies are quite proud of them. At the supermarket you can find the “kangaroo symbol” in all sorts of products.
Here you can find lots of restaurants from all over the world and you can also find lots of international influences in the way people eat. You can just grab a couple of rolls of sushi for lunch, get a burrito if you fancy mexican instead, go to Yum Cha or eat a sandwich with lots of salad, avocado (always!), and some meat or fish.
It is quite common to go out for breakfast/brunch on the weekend and I must confess that I love this tradition 😀 Nothing like some lovely bacon, eggs, toast, etc. washed down with some good coffee. This is also a great opportunity for us to discover new places and, bit by bit, feel more at home.
Today we went to the iconic Gunshop Café. We were aware that it does get quite busy on weekends and were prepared to queue outside for a while. We actually got a table in the outdoor backyard straight away. Even though it was quite busy we did not have to wait long for our food at all. And, most importantly, it was delicious!!! The space is quite nice and somewhat funky, the staff are very nice and the food is gorgeous. Great place to start a lazy Sunday ;-p
