Aussie eateries are popping up across the country, as restaurants open their doors to the world.
From humble Chinese restaurants in the Northern Territory to the big names in Sydney, there’s a wide range of cuisines and options available to Australians.
“When I was growing up, there were a few Chinese restaurants,” says Lianne Gee, the manager of a Chinese-inspired eatery in Melbourne.
“But we were always in a hurry and we’d get to the front of the queue and there were only a few tables open.”
So, Liannne decided to open her own restaurant in Melbourne, and she has already received rave reviews.
“It’s a real pleasure to come here and I’m so happy to be here.
It’s a different culture to other places I’ve come across,” she says.
