Travel blogger Erin Fang (pictured left) was slammed after saying not to’ fall for the coffee’ while in Australia in a now-viral TikTok clip
In the clip, she first advises tourists not to go to the Opera House for photos but instead get on the Manly Ferry for the best views of the iconic Sydney landmark.
‘Next up don’t fall for the coffee. Honestly we heard that Melbourne had the best coffee but it just didn’t live up to the hype,’ Erin, who spent a month travelling Australia, said.
‘However if you had to splurge on one definitely go with Patricia’s.’
Erin also warned travellers against catching expensive Ubers and instead to use public transport.
While the US tourist wasn’t impressed with Aussie coffee, she did rave about the food – particularly smashed avocado on toast.
Erin’s praise of the Australian brunch staple did not save her from the onslaught of angry comments from viewers outraged at her coffee takedown
‘Do not underestimate the smashed avo – it’s the national dish for a reason and it is delicious,’ she said.

‘National what now????’ asked one follower.
‘Did you just call avocado toast our national dish??? SURELY YOU’RE KIDDING??,’ a second raged.
