While the Nullarbor Plain is considered as one of the world’s largest expanses of empty land, that doesn’t mean it’s barren. In fact, the very reason that so many tourists and adventure-lovers make an annual journey down the Eyre Highway is that it offers so many sights to see and stopovers to explore. Unsurprisingly, many of them sample the local culinary fare at each stopover.
With Ceduna positioned close to resources from both land and sea, the stopovers in the area and down the highway have meals that offer the best of both worlds. Most tourists make their plans to sample all the highly recommended restaurants they could find as they journey; after all, just because you’re crossing a great plain doesn’t mean your meals have to be “plain” too!
This is why the Nullarbor Roadhouse’s menu showcases great meals from both land and sea (and sometimes, even a combination of both). From entrées to desserts, the Nullarbor Roadhouse makes sure to cater to big appetites with discerning palates who want their food adventure to be just as rich as their physical one.
Must-Try Roadhouse Recipes
If you’re starting off your Roadhouse meal with an entrée, then our Garlic Prawns and Rice dish is a great bet. The prawns (along with other seafood) caught along the Eyre Peninsula are well-known all over the world, and getting a first taste of them served in this manner is never a bad idea.
But to really whet your appetite, consider some of the amazing main courses you can get at the Nullarbor Roadhouse. If you want to try a little land and sea at the same time, the Surf ‘n Turf with MSA Rump Steak is one of the most popular choices. You get a taste of great seafood with a 350g steak, and it comes with a side of chips and salad. It’s definitely the dish to try to get the best of both worlds.
For meat lovers, there’s nothing like a splendid spread straight from the grill. The roadhouse’s Mixed Grill, with steak, chop, sausage, bacon, grilled tomatoes, eggs, and a side of chips and salad, will satisfy even the most ravenous party of adventurers looking to recharge after a long drive or a big Nullarbor exploratory adventure.
The most iconic meal we have is the Nullaburger, followed closely by the Nulladog. These are always the most popular meals, with many pointing it out as one of the highs of their trip!
Vegetarians also need not worry—always considerate to the myriad of travellers that come by, the Nullarbor Roadhouse also serves up Vegetable Patties with chips and salad.
If you’re bringing a family on the trip with you, the kids can have their pick of a great kids’ menu that includes chicken nuggets, calamari, and even roast lamb and vegetables!
You can round off a big meal with sticky date pudding and apple-crumble too, all served with cream and ice cream. Sounds good, doesn’t it?
