Royal Melbourne Show food: 10 types of food you have to try

Royal Melbourne Show is coming on this weekend from Saturday 23 of September and runs for 11 days until to Tuesday 3 October at Melbourne Show grounds.
In a throwback to last year, Dagwood dogs are the most popular food in Royal Melbourne show, which last year sold more than 50,000.
This year’s Royal Melbourne show decide to co-operate with a lot of pop-up restaurants, food trucks and cooking demos and masterclasses.
As well as take away buckets of chips, the show has also provided tables this year for visitors to taste foods.

During these 11 days of the Show, The Royal Agricultural Society’s food Awards obviously is one of the highlights. If you like a one-stop-shop, the Winning Tastes Pavilion will be the best food experience for you at the show.
To help you organize your six meals in Royal Melbourne show, here are the top 10 foods you should try when the Show start:
  • If you like Japanese food, Tokyo Tina will be your good option. Toyko Tina crew is there from September 27 for four days only. They aim to promote the outstanding bulgogi beef rib shredded and served with pillowy bau, mizuna leaves and pickled cucumber, ginger and onion.

    2. No successful carnival is without a burger stop, and that’s why the Show has brought in The Smith. The Smith in Prahran will launch their new product at the Show, which is a milk bun filled with tempura soft shelled crab and loaded Mexican fries during 1 of October to 3 of October –  of course the normal fish burger with chips are available.
