Aussieland - Cairns
I stayed at a hostel that funneled its guests to this restaurant for cheap meals. Between 6pm and 8pm, you had to buy a drink to get a free meal; after 8pm, you're free and clear. The meals were pretty simple noodle- or rice-based dishes with stuff thrown on top. You could upgrade to a steak for, like, $5 more but again I was on a budget. So, I made due.
Easily the best "free" dish they have - vegetarian pasta.
Lunch on the Great Barrier Reef tour
Spaghetti Bolognaise - BLAH
Peel away the skin, and there's a berry underneath.
I liked every flavor except the coconut. -___-"" And that's just because it contained coconut flakes, which I don't like. It's a texture thing.
Chili Con Carne - BLAH
Kangaroos are considered a nuisance in Australia. I didn't get to eat any, so this is the closest I got to consumption. I've been told the meat's pretty lean. I'm sure I would've liked it had I tasted some. This was sold in the Woolworth's grocery store.
Trial size cereal
OMG - so helpful!
