What does "tropical smorgasbord lunch" mean?
In Norwegian it sounds like Smørbrød - which means sandwiches?

Aussies love their food and using fancy (foreign) words to describe it ;). My french housemate always gets really angry when another french cuisine expression has been written incorrect or used in the wrong sense . From what I know a smorgasbord is simply a meal served buffet style, consisting of a large variety of hot and cold dishes. The tropical leads to the conclusion that their might be some fresh fruit involved. Probably no bananas though as the kilo costs around $13 at the moment. After all no need to worry you won't be getting the same Smørbrød than at home.

hth,

It's chicken and salad and bread and fruit served in the Tropics. If it was served anywhere else it would be called lunch.

It could also include seafood..... as well as all the lovely tropical fruits etc. Yum could certainly use one of those meals right now being stuck out in the outback.

Enjoy it whatever it is KriKri - have some for me! LOL

so, it sounds like a normal lunch/buffet to me, that's what I thought.
Sounds good! Better than Smørbrød that's for sure ;)
