And you like a good friendly hopping marsupial.
So there's no reason that when both come together in the Kangaroo Burger, you wouldn't want to try one on for size.
The chef/owner at the Tee Off Bar & Grill in the Richmond, the brains behind this Aussie bite, hails from kitchens like Kokkari and Aqua, so he's no stranger to cooking wild game—and has been known to prep a good ostrich too.
When the 'roo burger arrives, riding high atop a pile of housemade sweet potato chips, it'll look exactly like a regular burger. The juicy meat tastes somewhat like beef, but slightly sweeter, with a subtle tanginess, and it's lean like venison. It's topped with a kiwi relish (kind of like kangaroo ketchup) for now, but they're considering serving in the traditional Aussie way by topping it with sliced beets and a fried egg.
Since kangaroo meat is in limited supply, you should know that they're only serving it on the weekend.
Which, we're happy to report, has just begun.
