We also eat kangaroos. Don't hate us coz you ain't us.
To be clear, Australian cuisine is about as good as American cuisine (ie. terrible). However, we have a lot more migrants blessing us with their amazing food. I rate everyday $8 food court Indian food better than any Indian I've had here.
San Francisco, LA and New York were all very good, in my experience. That's about the level you get in the major cities, back home. Seattle definitely isn't terrible. It's definitely miles better than Tampa, where I lived previously. However, I still wouldn't call it great.
I’ve only spent a couple weeks in Australia but came away with the impression that meat pies are a food group in your country . I did spend a couple of days in Sydney and had some good food though. Rural areas…not so much. I lived in Tampa a bit as well and found the best food to be smaller spots but I was not blown away either. That said, I could have eaten Cuban sandwiches 3 meals a day and been perfectly content.
