Australia’s Top 100 Restaurants 2016

It’s a very exciting day in the life of a food blogger when the Top 100 list gets published. Most people hang out waiting for Triple J’s Hottest 100 on Australia Day, but I hang out for the Foodie Hottest 100, aka the Australian Financial Review Top 100 Restaurants.

The winner this year goes to Attica in Victoria – yep, it’s definitely on my list!

Have a look at the Top 100 and let me know which one’s you’ve been to/hanging out to try! I love to make a tally of how many I’ve been too – trying to beat it every year is fun!

I know a lot of my readers are from overseas (particularly the USA – thanks everyone 🙂 ) – so think of this list as motivation to come have a holiday in the land Down Under!

    I like my food and go out to my share of restaurants but I have not been to any of these restaurants before. So I will have to keep eating and get started on this list!
    Mind you, I cannot agree with #11 on the list “Mr Wong”. How did this make #11 of the best restaurants – it sounds like the “Wong” choice to me 🙂
