Restaurants with Kangaroo & Emu on the menu?

By Man With The Plan - 19 July 2011 23

I’ve been entertaining a few international visitors, and they have told me that they would like to try Kangaroo, Emu, Crocodile etc.

Can anyone recommend some local restaurants/cafes with these items on the menu?

What’s Your opinion?

Doesn’t Poachers Pantry get into this kind of fare?

Having seen and read very recently some pretty yucky things about the kangaroo meat supply chain recently, I’d think twice about – at least in relation to eating the hopping one.

The restaurant at the top of Black Mountain Tower did feature it on their menu. May be worth a phone call to check if it still features. Coles & Woolies sell kangaroo fillets – as is or marinated.

I wanted to find out too now because I love kangaroo (both the hopping and the meat-on-plate kind). But barely anyone seems to serve it anymore! Too controversial?

The Boat House by the Lake has 1 kangaroo dish on their current menu: http://www.boathousebythelake.com.au/menus_intro.html Would be a very nice location to take guests from out of town to.

And I started going through this list, but didn’t get very far yet (and no luck with roo on the menu yet): http://www.boathousebythelake.com.au/menus_intro.html

Let me know where you end up going?

Delissio in Braddon has Roo on the menu and , from what I have been told, is very good.

Try Grazing out at Gundaroo. The menu is seasonal but ht e food there has always been spectacular. They normally have at least one Skippy dish.

Yep get the kangaroo fillets from coles which are fantastic, or you can also get the marinated kangaroo steaks which I haven’t tried yet. I BBQ the fillets at least once a week then slice it up in a salad.

Flint restaurant prepares beautifully succulent kangaroo, however you might need to wait a while before they’re operating again.

I did have roo at the restaurarant in Telstra Tower once, but that was 10 years ago. Used to be a fun place to take tourists to. Alto – as it is called – gets very bad reviews pretty consistently now though. And it is very expensive too, so sounds like pretty poor value for money.

Not a resteraunt but I’m pretty sure you can get a roo steak at Magpies Club at Kippax

There are plenty of places that does roo, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen emus or crocs.

If they are that eager I’d recommend travelling to the Northern Territory and going on one of those Bush Tucker tours that are run by the local indigenous people.

Still a bit doubtful about the chances of dining on a croc though.

I’ve never seen emu or croc on a menu here either. But I’m pretty sure you can buy at least emu at Fyshwick markets.

I had Kangaroo at Grazing a few weeks back at a wedding, spectacularly good.
