A Taste of Australia

December 15th, 2008 by | Country: Australia | 2 Comments »

First of all, I have to thank Naomi and her family for taking me out to one of the most wonderful restaurants that I have been in Australia, Red Ochre. The restaurant is situated by the river overlooking the city of Adelaide – a magnificent view!


A family who are good friends of Naomi’s family joined us.  There were two sons and one of them is same age as me and has a cochlear implant.  So, it was neat meeting him as it’s always enjoyable to meet other CI users to discuss our experiences of our upbringings.


I had a true taste of Australian food – kangaroo, emu, wallaby, quail, and lamb.  All meat was outstandingly delicious, in particularly the kangaroo meat.  I was told that kangaroo meat is low in fat and high in protein – interesting.  It certainly doesn’t taste anything like steak!  They were all just rich in flavor, so rich that I’m craving for more!  Although, I have to admit that it was quite weird eating a kangaroo meat after petting a kangaroo this morning!


For dessert, I had cherry souffle – sooooo good!


Then after dinner, I went up to the mountains to photograph a stunning overview of the city of Adelaide!

It was our pleasure having you here with us! Glad you enjoyed the Red Ochre and yes it was a little ironic that we patted some of the same sorts of animals during the day at Warrawong that were later on our plates at dinner *smile*

Rachel, I’m calling the Travel Channel, you need you’re own show. Was that an albino kangaroo or just a baby? Looks like a fantastic trip, thank you for taking us along!
