Sydney Street Food - Part 2

More Sydney Street Food that I've tried during other visits to Sydney, Australia, continuing from Part 1.

This list includes dishes not listed in Sydney Street Food - Part 1. While cuisine is mostly Australian, there are also influences from British and Chinese cuisines.


Unlike the more decadent Hamburger With The Lot, the classic Aussie Beef Burger is the basics of what makes a burger good. A thick, juicy, medium done minced beef patty, made using fresh ground beef, grilled perfectly. Along with 2 toasted sesame seed burger buns, lettuce, onions, tomato, and the classic Australian beetroot, the Aussie Beef Burger is usually served along with tomato sauce and fries.

Having a barbecue is a favourite pastime hobby in Australia and Sydney, so an Australian Barbecue Meat Platter features an assortment of various meats. These are all usually basted in a sticky, sweet sour tangy barbecue sauce, then grilled, barbecued, or cooked rotisserie style. The usual items include Barbecue Pork Ribs, Barbecue Chicken Wings, Grilled Beef Top Sirloin, or prawns / shrimp. An uncommon item is the Grilled Boerewors Sausage, a sausage which originated from South Africa. It's made with a blend of 90% minced beef, and the remaining 10% consisting of minced pork, minced lamb, coriander seeds, black pepper, salt, nutmeg, cloves, allspice, and white vinegar.
