Apparently the national dish of England is now Chicken Tikka Masala! I guess that's an example of Internationalism.

What's Australia's?
I'm struggling to think of a uniquely Australian dish that could be considered to be worthy of "national dish" status. Pavlova's New Zealand, Roast Lamb British, and I think we can do better than a Meat Pie.

I've come across this site which (over three pages) lists national dishes. It's a fairer list with several of each country. And you're right about chicken tikka masala...there it is under England's.

I associate roast lamb with Australia, roast beef as British.

Wichity grubs???

We're a relatively young country and brought most of the food we routinely eat to this country from others, so no surprise we don't have a distinctive national dish...

In some ways it also makes us freer to take the best bits from a whole range of cuisines and mix and match them rather than being stuck within the confines of some traditional way of cooking...

If Poland can have Bigos, then there is no shame in Australia having the Chiko Roll as a national dish.

Australian hamburgers as opposed to American etc would be a fair example.

With the lot of course. (cue comments about how pineapple is an obscenity on a burger...)

May well be uniquely Australian, but is far from a national dish. Certainly not something I'd ever seen or even heard of growing up in Victoria at least until I visited Adelaide for the first time.
See, word is spreading.

Isn't Beetroot in hamburgers a uniquely Australian addition?
