Kangaroo

Another update!

When I started to tell my family and friends about my upcoming trip to Australia, I often got the question, “are you going to try kangaroo?”. To be honest, I was never really sure if I would have the opportunity or the guts at the time to do it.

At the college, I stayed at in Melbourne, lamb was a big presence at dinner so I figured I wouldn’t get any kangaroo unless I really explored. But when we spent a couple days in the Grampians, there was a little diner that served it. And I tried it.

It was a kangaroo souvlaki, similar to a gyro, and it was pretty good. It had a slightly different taste than any other meat I have had but nothing too out there or weird. Also, it probably helped that it was in this wrap form because it helped take away the image of what I was eating.


We also hadn’t seen any wild kangaroos yet.

But we saw plenty later in the day. (I would post a picture but think it’s a little insensitive for this post…).

Anyway, I tried something new, have a great story to tell people, and am extra willing to explore different foods now.
