Burke & Wills Hotel is tempting diners into Zack’s Restaurant with a plated assortment of distinctive Australian ingredients. Boldly named the “Roadkill Mixed Grill”, this Australian bush-tucker is locally sourced from Aussie farmers and is available throughout October. While this beautiful Australian produce is growing in popularity internationally, most Australians have not yet tried these local delicacies. If you’re not familiar with these flavours, allow us to introduce you.
Marinated Kangaroo Fillet
This beautiful Australian meat has a bit of a kick to it. Kangaroo has a different, distinct flavour without being too overpowering. While often compared to Venison and Buffalo meat, Kangaroo is not as dry as Deer and is leaner than Buffalo. It is an excellent substitute for beef, and is much healthier, with double the amount of iron.
Tender Buffalo Patty
It may surprise some, but Buffalo tastes very similar to high-quality grass-fed Beef. Rich in flavour and deliciously tender, it stands out for its slightly sweeter taste. Buffalo meat is more nutritionally dense than other red meats, with very little fat and more protein and iron when compared to Beef.
Juicy Emu Sausage
If you’re thinking ‘tastes like chicken’ you might be shocked to hear that Emu doesn’t taste like white meat at all. It has a very distinct flavour, and can be considered similar in texture and taste to lean Beef. Emu is an excellent, healthier alternative as it is lower in cholesterol, fat, and calories.
Crispy Boar Bacon
A close relative of the domestic pig with a bad attitude, Wild Boar is actually a healthier meat than its cousin (and considerably delicious). Although, if you think the taste is similar to pork, guess again. It has a superior taste and texture, which can be described as a cross between beef and pork with a rich and nutty flavour.
Delicious Duck Egg
Did you know? Duck eggs are quite large in comparison to chicken eggs, which also give it them a larger yolk to white ratio. They provide a taste that is considered different and tastier than chicken eggs by most consumers. However, individual tastes may vary – so we recommend that you try one out and decide for yourself!
