    If you want good pizza, you gotta try the thin crust from Marino's in Wood Dale, IL. It's awesome!

    The Outback, the Australian themed restaurant???

    I took my wife there when we first got together (she's Australian) and she had a laugh at the idea of 'Australian food'.

    We need to go back one day so we can both have a laugh now. After spending 7.5 years there myself I'm sure I'll find it amusing now too.

    We've had an Australian Outback restaurant by us for about 5 to 7 years. When it first opened I wanted to try it, but I read reviews that said you check in and they give you a pager and they tell you to come back when the pager goes off. Most people said it was a 2 hour wait. About a year later I checked the reviews again and people were saying the same thing, so I have never had a meal at the Australian Outback restaurant in the states.

    I know nothing about Australian cuisine. What type of food should an Australian restaurant serve?

    I've read about Vegemite, I am not sure I would like it, but I would give it a try.

    Spread thinly. It's a bit salty. It looks like a paste. Reminds me of tile grout in it's thickness. Don't have it as a 'sandwich' but on toast with a bit of butter.

    You should be able to find it somewhere in the US. I wouldn't doubt it's available on Amazon. :P

    Well, where to start...

    It's a bit difficult to answer this question, it's kind of like asking, what really is 'American' food or 'Canadian' food. Both of these places along with Australia have influences from other cultures so ingrained now that most people don't realise it comes from a different place entirely.

    There's a lot of Australasian flavours in Australia. Food is generally fresh, light and flavourful at most places if you go to a restaurant. Depending on where you live, seafood is rather big. Indian, Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese, Italian, Moroccan, Turkish (love Turkish Pide, very popular in Australia), etc. It's all there in Australia.

    If we were to look at what the more 'red neckish' Australian eats, then you're looking at sausages, typically (though lots of Aussies like them), steaks (cheap cuts in other words) on the BBQ. Prawns (shrimp) are not in most people's diet. Fish and chips and other seafood is. Roast chicken from a shop (Chicken Shop as it's typically called) is also popular. Salads are big. If you're more in the outback then you're looking more of meat and veg diet as the ocean is a bit out of the way. Fruit is big in Australia as well. There's also deep fried favourties like chips (French fries) and other things. Burgers too! None of which are on the menu at the Outback.

    So I'm not entirely sure what the Outback is really selling. It's like an American idea of Australian flavours, I guess, but that's virtually impossible to capture. Looking at the menu (Outback Steakhouse - assuming that's the same menu) I'm left wondering if the person who set up this restaurant has ever been to Australia or just used Crocodile Dundee as an influence because I can tell you, none of those items on that menu, aside from the basics (prawns, lamb and steak, etc) are common. Probably the biggest miss is a hamburger with 'the lot' or anything with pineapple.

    I wouldn't say anything on that menu is a reflection of anything really Australian personally.
