Notice that I did not type kangaroos. No, my first experience with Australia’s national symbol was not with the furry jumping kind. My first experience was of the dead, meat variety. Yup, I tried kangaroo…the food. Chris commented once that he thought Australia was the only country to eat it’s national symbol/animal. The statement holds true for the United States; we don’t eat eagles. So what is the verdict? To put it simply, I’ll stick with chicken thank you very much. I tried the sausage variety. Maybe kangaroo steak tastes better. I think it was the texture more than the taste that wasn’t to my liking. Hopefully my experience with live kangaroos is more to my taste (pun intended).
