Have Australian-brunch in Busan
Busan World Food - Sister Cities ① Australia
Busan is a melting pot of culture, science and trade, with 26 sister cities. In hopes of hosting the World Expo 2030, Dynamic Busan would like to introduce popular cuisines from these cities and recommend comparable local eateries.
△Take a bite out of one of the many succulent Australian-Asian fusion menu options, at a terraced cafe, within reach across the city.
Busan's sister city: Victoria
In October 1994, Victoria, a state located on the southeastern coast of Australia, became Busan's "Sister city." That year at an exhibition in Melbourne, the state capital, the history between the two countries began. Both cities, being their perspective centers of port transportation, signed a maritime cooperation agreement to exchange information and technologies related to the red tide phenomena and its harmful effects.
Trendy Australian style brunch
In the past, meat pies, steak and barbecue were considered typical Australian dishes. These days cafe items are the pinnacle of dining "down under."
In Korea, cafes are the ideal place to drink a coffee and a chat. However, in addition to beverages and conversation, Australians like eating brunch outside at terraced cafes to enjoy the fresh air while eating a meal. Since the 1990s, having breakfast around lunchtime has become a worldwide sen-sation; Busan is no different.
Australian brunch and breakfast foods are not that different from other western countries. The names and appearances of popular dishes such as "eggs benedict" and "french toast" are quite similar. However, the flavor found, while digging in, can differ significantly based on their location. The island is chock-full of fresh ingredients. As a result, many restaurants and cafes use organic food, when possible.
△Decadent pavlovas are both creamy and crunchy.
Desserts are a must at cafes in Australia, where many people take home cakes or cookies after having brunch. Typical treats are "pavlovas" and "lamingtons," Australia's quintessential desserts. Pavlova is a baked meringue-based layered cake topped with whipped cream and various fruits, historically created to commemorate the visit of the legendary Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova in the 1920s. A traditional lamington is made from vanilla sponge cake, which is coated in chocolate and topped with coconut. This goodie is usually served in multiples and is said to be named after Lord Lamington, who served as the governor of Queensland in the late 19th century.
△Healthy choices like the Hawaiian Poke Bowl aren't hard to find.
