Fresh and Local -
Cuisine in the Richmond Valley
With a rich agricultural and fishing heritage the cuisine on offer at many local cafes and restaurants is sure to please even the fussiest palate!
We not only enjoy the reputation of being the 'Beef Capital of Australia' where a succulent, thick, juicy steak is the order of the day at many eateries. Local produce extends to the plate with beef, pork, chicken, eggs, farm fresh fruit and vegetables - all grown right here - and the fishing fleet in Evans Head brings the catch in fresh from the ocean daily!
Coffee is also grown locally in the region and along with teas, rice, olives, preserves, macadamia nuts, muesli, wine, olive oil and herbs, to name a few! You are bound to be delighted by the variety and freshness.
Indigenous cuisine can be enjoyed at the Bunawlbu Café and Aboriginal Art Gallery in Bonalbo, which offers a fusion of traditional Aboriginal foods with modern Australia cuisine or try French with Altitude, at the Lookout in Mallanganee, just a short drive west from Casino!
