Good Eats in Newcastle, NSW, australia

Irish Chef Mar 15, 2007 08:48 AM

hey chowhounds,

i am making a huge 25 hour flight from ireland to australia for my brothers wedding. i am looking for all things edible and delicilous in this city just north of sydney.

i was looking for any good restaurants that do old, traditional, authenic and modern australian cuisine.

when i go on holiday, i set my self three targets to truely explore the cusine of that country and they are:

Experience the cuisine of the streets, i.e the street vendor food

The cuisine passed down from generation to generation or the old school, homely traditional australian food

Finally, being a young chef also wanting to learn new modern cuisines, i would like to experience the modern cuisine, that all the city chefs experiment with evry day in their restaurants.

in order to get a true feel and experience of a countries cuisine, i think you should taste the good, the great and the excellent of australia.

So if you have any suggestions, please help me

P.S: do you know of any farmers or food markets in newcastle city or surrounding hunter valley.

Thanks

Irish Chowhound
