I've had eel. Caught it wild and cooked it up. Was quite nice.

Roo is good if cooked properly.
Camel is bloody tough. Hated it. Croc was nice.

I've had alpaca. It's a type of camel. Guinea pig was yum. Croc and emu weren't great. Can't stand the smell of kangaroo. God knows what I was eating in China.

We entered a BBQ smoking comp a couple of years ago and won the surprise meat category, which was a roo loin. We spiced it up, wrapped it in the pig skin from the shoulder and smoked it for an hour or so, couple of the judges said it was the best roo they'd ever had.

There were alley rats as big as domestic pets roaming around outside.

I couldn't read the menu inside, so I passed...

Good one echoes
Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

Mr Nibbles is unimpressed with talk of eating goat.
But after disposing of his predecessor i can guarantee goat shanks look identical to lamb shanks

Goat Yes. Every year at the end of Ramadan my wife and I get invited around to a Muslim friends place to share a meal and goat meat is usually the key dish, usually in a variety of curries. Yum!

Brussel sprouts? I'm normally a decided NO.

But I just ate some in my Youfoodz lunch: https://youfoodz.com/collections/all/pr ... uddha-bowl ... and the maple lemon dressing made it taste vaguely acceptable!
