Top Foods to Try While on Your Working Holiday Visa

We don't know about you, but one of our favorite parts of travelling is trying the local cuisine. So for all you other foodies out there we compiled a list of our favorite foods to try while on your Working Holiday Visa.

Ireland- Possibly known more for their beers and whiskeys, here are our top menu items when visiting:

  • Full Irish Breakfast-includes bacon, sausage, black and white puddings, eggs, vegatables and potatos all fried in creamy butter, often served with Irish Soda Bread. Don't plan for a lot of physical activity right after this meal!
  • Irish Stew-a hearty dish traditionally made with lamb, perfect for a cold, rainy day in IRL
  • Chocolate Orange Guinness Cake- combines the countries most famous beer, chocolate and orange zest, a perfect combination!

Australia- Has strong culinary influences from Asia and England and unlimited access to the freshest seafood:

  • Barramundi- fresh fish unique to this region with a mild taste and delicate texture, served a variety of ways
  • Tim Tam's-can be purchased at almost any grocery or convenience store, these cookies are coated with chocolate and come in a vareity of flavors (we advise going for double chocolate
  •  Meat Pie-although it's originally from England, Australia does a pretty mean meat pie with many options for fillings

New Zealand-Similar to Australian cuisine and driven by local, fresh ingredients

  • Afghan Biscuit- a Kiwi classic, crunchy and soft chocolate cookie with icing on top
  • Tuatua- shellfish indiginous to NZ, may be a little milder, creamier and softer than you're used to, we especially enjoy tuatua fritters with dipping sauces
  • Fry Bread- very popular in Maori circles and exactly what it sounds like, can be served with sweet or savory meals
