Western food is now so popular, it’s become a household name.
But to get a taste of what it’s like to eat Western food, let’s take a look at how the average Westerner can enjoy a meal and what they can expect to pay.
Read moreThe Western food marketIn Australia, the Western food industry is worth $1.3 trillion and there are approximately 1.3 million restaurants in Australia.
As an average Australian eats at around 80 restaurants per week, the average daily bill is about $4.80.
While many restaurants charge a premium for their Western food options, it is still cheaper than the Chinese and Japanese.
In Australia, most Westerners can expect a $3.80 dinner for a dinner out, which is just over half the price of the Chinese average, and just under the Japanese average.
What to expectWhen you head to a restaurant, it will be important to remember that Western food can vary in price.
If you go for the dinner option, the menu may include an option for $1,400 or $2,000 for a Western-style dinner.
This is a relatively small price to pay for what you get for the money.
If your dinner is the Western-themed menu, it might cost $3,000 or more.
What you should expectWhen dining at a Western restaurant, expect to spend a little more than the Japanese, Chinese and American standards, with most of the food costing more than double what you pay for Chinese or Japanese food.
However, the cost is manageable if you go with a Western meal plan.
The standard menu for a typical Western dinner in Australia costs $8.80, and a Western lunch menu is $4,000.
In Japan, the standard Western meal at a Japanese restaurant is $9.90 and a typical Japanese dinner is $14.20.
The average Japanese meal will cost about $13.60, and the typical Western meal will be $19.80 (although, the Japanese are usually better prepared than Australians).
The Japanese menu is similar to the Western menu, except the standard menu costs about $12.50 and the Western lunch costs about 50% more.
In the Western portion of a Japanese meal, the restaurant’s standard price will be roughly $15.50.
In Japan, you can also choose from a variety of Western and Japanese dishes.
While in Australia, you may be expected to pay a bit more for Western food at a sushi restaurant than in Japan, in reality, there is no difference in the standard price of sushi at a Chinese restaurant.
The difference in standard prices is that in Japan there is a larger difference between Western and Chinese sushi, so the standard Japanese meal costs more than Western sushi.
While the average Australian meal at Western restaurants will cost around $4 and the average Japanese dinner will cost more than $20, the price difference between Japanese and Western meals in Australia is minimal.
The only difference in a Japanese or Western restaurant is the amount of Western rice and the amount that is added to the dish.
The Western restaurant menuAt a Western dinner, most of your options will be Western.
The most popular Western meal option is the western-themed meal.
The menu for this type of Western meal is typically $4 or $6.
Westerners usually expect to eat around four courses, which means a Western diner could expect to order around 10 courses for $4 to $6, or around 18 courses for around $20.
In terms of the standard, Western food comes with a standard price, so it should be no problem for a consumer to make a small dent in their bill by opting for this meal.
However if you opt for a meal with a different theme, you could expect your bill to go up.
For example, if you opted for a Japanese-themed dinner at a western restaurant, you might expect to have dinner for around 12 courses for about $16, and that could easily go up to around 20 courses for a more extravagant dinner.
If this is the type of food you eat at, you should pay more for it, but it is worth remembering that the Japanese will usually have more of a variety in their menus, so there is nothing to be scared off about.
While many Westerners opt for Western restaurants for dinner, some choose to order the standard meals.
In most cases, the American standard is the American-style meal, while the Chinese will often offer a variety depending on the season.
However the Chinese have a tradition of ordering Western-inspired dishes, and Westerners will be expected, if not forced, to order Western-esque meals.
In Australia and New Zealand, the most popular menu is the standard meal, which costs around $12 and the standard Chinese-style lunch.
In New Zealand it will cost just under $17, but this is likely to be slightly inflated.
A Western meal menu will cost $15 to
