More trivia from your CFATDU...
As it is Tasty Tuesday, we thought we'd tell you a couple of useless facts about the Australian Hamburger.
If your parents orfriends visit Australia and go to a hot food shop, Milk Bar (nearing extinction) or Fish & Chip shop, they might want to order a hamburger.
We're NOT talking McDonald's or other chain hamburger places.
As they bite into it, they may notice an unusual taste....usually followed by 'What's in this thing?'
That would be.......sliced...
|It's usually sliced, this was the only picture we could find.|
Pickled, of course.
Though many true-blue Aussies will discard the pickle found in fast-food hamburgers, the beetroot holds an iconic standing in Australia.
If visitors are feeling adventurous, they may wish to go 'all the way' and order
a hamburger 'with the lot'.
This burger has, a beef patty, lettuce, tomato, bacon, cheese, pineapple, a fried egg and of course the beetroot!
You can have a choice of tomato, bbq or steak sauce...mustard isn't usually a choice.
If one is still feeling peckish, order a few potato scallops.
|Ignore the Dim Sims in the background|
Potato scallops are sort of a mashed potato thingy dipped in batter and deep fried. Salt is optional.
