13 Australian food slang words you need to know:
Snags (sausages) – “Chuck some extra snags on the barbie!”
Not to be confused with swags (outdoor camping equipment)
Tim Tams (Aussies favorite biscuit) – We love them too!
Sausage Sizzle (a BBQ serving sausages on a slice of white bread) – You would be surprised how great something so simple can be.
Pav (pavlova- an overrated desert)
Barra (barramundi- a fish Aussies love to catch and eat)
Capsicum (red, yellow and green peppers)
Zucchini (courgette) – Same thing with Capsicum Straya
Esky (portable cooler- a staple in every respectable Aussie home) – One of the best things you can have on a summers day.
Lollies (regular sweets, not lolly pops)
Milk Bar (convenience store, not a bar that serves milk)
Stubby (an unnecessarily small beer) – Great for when it hits 35+ degrees and your beer gets warm in under 5 minutes.
Bottle Shop/Bottle-O (an off-license) – In Perth and a few other areas in Australia, there is many drive through “Bottle O’S” very handy.
