Subject:Australian Food.
Time:01:26 am



Rather than posting all the photos in one big entry, I'm thinking of spreading out the Australian pics over a few entries. Maybe. In any case, here's an entry about food in Sydney. I'm not going to write about their "normal" foods, like meat pies or sausage rolls. Instead I'm posting photos of things that may or may not have been intended to be inside a human being. Like bugs.

I first heard of bugs in Hong Kong, and assumed it was just an Australian slang for lobster - like how they call breakfast "brekkie."

But as you can see in the pics, it actually is a fricking bug. Like something that would jump onto your face and ravenously feast on your eyeball jelly as you frantically tried to pry it off. Alien face-eater or not, it's quite delicious.

Here I am petting a kangaroo ...

And here I am eating a kangaroo. Kangaroo pizza, that is. Didn't expect the pizza to have so many slabs of kangaroo on it. The first slice wasn't bad - probably because I was hungry. The meat's surprisingly tender, but a bit gamey; but I don't mind gamey at all. However, the more I ate, the more gamey it began to taste. Then it reached a disturbing level of gamey that I'd never experienced before. "This must be what people taste like," I thought as I finished another slice.

Paul wisely stopped eating after he started to feel something bad, but I kept going until I finished the whole thing. For the rest of the day, I could not remove the sick, indescribable taste from my mouth, or soul. I chugged a quadruple espresso. I thought about gargling Sydney Harbour water or licking the semi-nude Aborigine street performer. I will never consume marsupial again.

We finally come to Vegemite: Australia's most famous food thanks to Men At Work. It's a dark paste made from the yeast extract that's left over after they brew beer. Australians love beer so damn much, they feel compelled to eat its sludge.

Instead of the sandwich, we decided to try Vegemite on toast. We were advised to apply generous amounts of butter before lightly scraping on the Vegemite. The butter apparently helps soften the taste of pure Aussie evil.
