Another Lesson in Aussie Culture...


I need to warn you about something if you ever come to Adelaide, and that is our "Pie Floater". It is sold at several outlets in the city and it is a favourite with late night revellers. I am educating you about this so that you know to refuse if it doesn't sound your "cup of tea". A pie floater is a traditional Australian meat pie, covered with tomato sauce (ketchup) and then it floats upside down in a plate of thick green pea soup. It is one of the most filling things you will ever eat, and the few that I have had, I have never been able to finish it all. It is a favourite of several celebrities apparently, like Billy Connolly and Joe Cocker, and they always go and have one after a performance if visiting Adelaide. Don't say I didn't warn you.......

Hmm I have never had one of those. Not a big fan of pea soup. Does look very interesting though.
