Travel blogger Erin Fang (pictured left) was dealt a blow after telling her not to fall for coffee in a now-viral TikTok clip in Australia.
In the clip, she first advises tourists not to head to the Opera House for photos, but instead hop on the Manly Ferry for the best view of Sydney’s iconic landmark.
Then don’t kick for the coffee. Honestly, we heard Melbourne had the best coffee, but it just didn’t live up to the hype,” says Erin, who spent a month traveling around Australia.
“But if you have to spend one, definitely go for Patricia’s.”
Erin also warned travelers not to take expensive Ubers and instead use public transportation.
While the American tourist wasn’t impressed with Aussie coffee, she was enthusiastic about the food — especially smashed avocado on toast.
Erin’s praise for the Australian brunch chapter didn’t save her from the onslaught of angry comments from viewers outraged at her coffee withdrawal
“Don’t underestimate the broken avo — it’s the national dish for a reason and it’s delicious,” she said.
Erin’s praise for the Australian brunch chapter didn’t save her from the onslaught of angry comments from viewers outraged at her coffee takedown.
‘Australian coffee is some of the best in the world, make your taste buds miss the sugary Starbucks,’ wrote one Australian.
“Is this a joke?” another wondered.
“You can’t take this seriously if you’re questioning Melbourne’s coffee scene,” another joked.
‘That’s because Aussie coffee is actually natural rather than American coffee which is filled with chemicals and sugar,’ a third wrote while a fourth agreed: ‘You guys are used to coffee from the US, which has about 20 teaspoons of sugar. in it’.
Others were baffled by Erin’s claim that Australia’s “national dish” is avocado on toast.
‘National what now????’ asked one follower.
Did you just call avocado toast our national dish??? You’re kidding, aren’t you?” a second raged.
