A couple of weeks ago, I finally gathered enough courage to try the meat of one of the indigenous animals of Australia:
And so, it was on a Wednesday evening that I went to the Suzuki Night Market and bought ‘meself’ (that’s how some Aussies refer to themselves) a Roo Burger.
The cost of the exotic dish was AUD 9.60. It’s basically a huge bun sliced into half and stuffed with a large piece of barbecued kangaroo meat and garnished with heaps of onion (that’s how some Aussies describe ‘a lot’), slices of tomatoes, lettuce and BBQ sauce.
The meat was a lot tougher than chicken meat but less than beef. The consistency was a bit like biting into a very stale piece of fruitcake. The meat had a rather pungent smell, not unlike that of lamb. And the taste?
I thought it tasted blardy awful! (and that’s how some Malaysians describe the taste of unpalatable meat).
I will never try it again! Ever!
