Assignment 1: Restaurant Report and Menu Development


Australia has a very simple cuisine that most people are familiar with. There are no special or exclusive dishes that define the Australian cuisine but there are certainly dishes represent Australia well. From 1788 to 1900, Australia was a British colony and therefore, the British cuisine significantly influenced the Australian Cuisine of today. The agricultural products that are of abundance in Australia are what made up the staple foods of Australia. However, after the war ended, Australia became a central target for many migrants of Asia and the Mediterranean.

Before the Europeans colonised Australia, the aboriginals, the indigenous people of Australian, had their own cuisine of “bush tucker”. This was generally animals cooked on a fire, such as kangaroos and but in general, any animal that they could kill. Since globalisation, Australia’s core cuisine would be based around the meats of cattle and pigs.

The Name of the Restaurant will be Iconic Australia.

The foods of Australia do not require many ingredients are very simple. Australian’s main food parties will contain a Barbeque, some meat and other side dishes. This is considered to be an Australian traditional dinner. However this Popup restaurant will serve some of the Australia’s exotic meats, cooked and served in the traditional barbeque style.

Iconic Australia


Emu Fillet Sticks

Marinated emu fillets skewered onto a stick, served with a delicious chilli sauce

Skewers are a very common in barbeques and Australian take away shops. They are normally known as chicken kebabs and take the form of a long skewer with barbequed chicken meat on them. This is a very simple dish that can serve as an entrée.

Kangaroos are one of the most iconic animals in Australia, making is a great promotional cuisine for Australia and a great meal for tourists. Most people have never tried Kangaroos before and therefore this dish really stands out as this would be exotic and something that cannot be eaten anywhere else outside Australia. The meat would be already prepared and prior to the opening of the Pop-Up Restaurant.

This dish is extremely special. One of Australian’s favourite dishes, scramble eggs is remade to become an Iconic dish of Australia, promoting one of Australia’s native animals. Emu’s produce the largest bird eggs in Australia, second in the world to the Ostrich. One emu egg is equivalent to 10 to a dozen chicken eggs. Therefore one Emu egg is enough to feed many people.
