Enjoy spicy seafood at Hobart’s Asian restaurants. As Australia’s only island state, Tasmania is a hotbed of locally sourced seafood. And with Hobart’s Asian restaurants cooking with authentic and pungent spices, it’s a match made in heaven. At Kathmandu Cuisine on Francis Street, for example, the seafood dishes are second to none. The machha masala (freshly caught fish cooked in a mild curry sauce) is ideal for those who enjoy texture over spice, while diners seeking something hotter can try the chilli prawns stir fried in the wok with vegetables and chilli.
