Ever wondered what Australians typically eat? Pies. Yes, pies. Pies to Australians are what hamburgers and hot dogs are to Americans. Australian pies tend to be on the savory side. Visit any pie shop and expect dozens of flavors to choose from. The most popular is ground beef seasoned with tomato sauce. Every sporting arena in Australia carries pies, you can even locate a pie shop conveniently open at 3 am for those late night cravings. Lamingtons are also a staple from Down Under. This sweet sponge cake is covered in chocolate and coconut.
