Feel the Burn at Char Char
Restaurants are pretty expensive in Australia, but Char Char Yiros offered great values and amazingly delicious Middle Eastern food. Walk into the sweltering, tiny shop and place your order, then escape to a patio table and enjoy people-watching until your freshly grilled meal is served. The mixed platter for two ($40) includes lamb and chicken, BBQ sheftalia, lamb cutlets, grilled calamari, grilled haloumi, hot pita, hand-cut fries, Greek salad, yogurt garlic and an additional dip of your choice — in other words, way too much food. But it's so good, you'll stuff your face trying to eat it all anyway. For a lighter meal, try the grilled barramundi fillet, a tasty white fish that I wish we had in the U.S. The menu is extensive, but all you really need to know is: char char platter.
