The Land Down Under is well-known for being a melting pot of different cultures. With such a multicultural population, there’s no wonder the food is just as diverse too!

Spicy, savoury, and salty: that’s Malaysian food in a nutshell. With influences from its Chinese, Indian and Indonesian neighbours, Malay cuisine boasts a flavourful palate in its dishes that’ll heat up your tummy nicely this wintertime. Majority of the Malays are also Muslims, which makes their chow halal-friendly.
Here in Gladstone Park, we’ve got Malaysian Home Cuisine. If you ever chance upon a Malay takeaway like them, be sure to try satay skewers! Better yet, take a bite of their national dish: the nasi lemak.
Considered to be one of the healthiest cuisines in the world, Vietnamese cuisine heavily features fresh herbs and ingredients while using a modest amount of oil and dairy. Since Vietnam was also colonised by China countless times in the past, its cooking is fundamentally centred on the presence of the five elements (also known as Wu Xing).
So if you want to eat more veggies this wintertime, head to Obami House for all your Viet food cravings! You can’t go wrong with a comforting bowl of Phở or some Bánh mì, a baguette sandwich with cold cuts, veggies, and sweet sauce.
Want a mix of Arab and Mediterranean for your next meal? No worries. Hailing all the way from Western Asia, Lebanese food is as ancient and as interesting as it can be. The Lebanese diet is heavy on the garlic and the olive oil, with chicken and lamb being its common choice of meat.
Since Lebanese cuisine is often meant for sharing, it’s a nice way to bond this winter break. So go order some Manakish, a Lebanese pizza that’s topped with zaatar and veggies or some delicious Sfiha for you and your plus one when you swing by Tabet’s Bakery.
It might be the last but definitely not the least! Chinese food is the most popular Asian cuisine, so much so that you can find it anywhere in the world. Whether it just be for takeaway or a huge shindig, the food options for Chinese grub is endless.
Chinese food is a huge takeaway favourite, especially during the colder months. Get your fix with a bowl of black bean beef or special fried rice down at Riceflower Cafe or Bowl of Rice.
And that’s it! We’re barely halfway through Asian cuisine across Aussie shores, but it sure is quite assorted already.
