After 10 days pretending being "local" we relented and visited The Australian to watch the footy. Just like being home. The accents, the menu, the casual friendly atmosphere. Aussies go, coz its like home. Everyone else go, coz it's like home. Aussie, Aussie, Aussie!

Hi Elizabeth, thanks for the question. We no longer make Potato Cakes here at The Aus. But you have given us a great idea for a future special.
