What Are You Homesick For? Let These Venues Bring Back Memories of Home.

We all have special memories of home…as a multi-cultural nation, Australia embraces many different ethnicities, who have chosen to make this country home.

With the global pandemic curbing not only international travel but also preventing us from travelling interstate to visit family and friends, we have all had to make sacrifices.

What evokes memories of home for you? Is it the smell of fragrant tropical flowers, an Indian curry simmering in the kitchen, or the aroma of coconut suntan oil? Whatever sets off those waves of homesickness, we have you covered.

Every Friday, AGFG will highlight a restaurant, venue, or product from around the globe and this week we are heading to the rice paddies of Indonesia:

Ria Ayam Penyet – founded by Ibu Ruth – is a family-owned restaurant, which has been humbly serving true Indonesian food across South-east Asia for decades. Beginning the first humble step into Australia at South Melbourne in 2013, Ria Ayam Penyet now has restaurants in Dandenong, Noble Park, Preston, Randwick  and  Coorparoo
