AFC Asian Cup choose meat pie as Australia's national dish

THE AFC Asian Cup is coming to Australia this year and to celebrate bringing together 16 different nations, a photo of each country's "national dish" has been uploaded to the AFC Asian Cup Facebook page.

China's photo is of Peking duck, sushi for Japan and a good old fashioned meat pie for Australia.


Some Facebook users were less than impressed a meat pie was chosen as our national dish.

"Australia really needs to get a better national dish," one user commented on the AC2015 - National Dishes photo gallery.

"A meat pie is not a national dish, it's not even a dish," another wrote.

Others suggested the Chiko Roll, chicken "parmy" or steak and chips would be a better representation of our national dish.

What dish would you nominate as Australia's national dish?
