There's long been a connection between Britain and Australia. The two countries share a monarch, and they also share some similar culinary tastes too. Here at British restaurants in Melbourne, you can find a range of tasty dishes guaranteed to satisfy, including black pudding (blood sausage served with authentic HP sauce), haggis balls (a Scottish delicacy made from sheep's pluck), and for vegetarians the mac 'n' cheese balls served with a side helping of spicy sriracha mayo.
Britain is known for excellent comfort food like pies and roast dinners, and that's why the British restaurants in Melbourne are full of filling, delicious dishes to try. The Scotch pie on offer at Highlander on Highlander Lane, for example, is a real treat. Made with lamb and served with traditional British mushy peas, this is a dish not to be missed. Burgers, too, are on the menu. The Fat Bastard burger made with double beef patties, house pickles and mustard is also a good option. The burgers at this restaurant are made from the beef of Japanese Wagyu cows, which is one of the best and tastiest breeds around – so you can be sure you'll enjoy your burger!
