One thing we do have in Australia, even though I don’t think we really have any “delicacies” as I said yesterday, is variety. There is so much variety in the types of food you can eat here, due to the high level of immigration. You can get good old British fish and chips to eat at the beach, or you can walk to the café next door and have Mexican food.

Recently, vegan restaurants have been increasing, so there is a lot more meat-free variety available too. I think Japan has a lot of variety, nowadays, too, but when I first came to Japan (back in the 90’s) it was difficult to find much variety. What’s your favorite type of food? Do you like to eat a different variety of foods, or do you tend to stick to the traditional Japanese diet?
