I can’t get it from my local supermarket in Australia, but I can get it from my local meat shop in Mumbai! Emu meat. Native to Australia and Australia’s unofficial national bird (we don’t have an official one, but the emu appears on our coat of arms, along with the kangaroo).
The world is such a random place sometimes!
The shopkeeper told me that he hasn’t been getting any repeat orders for the emu meat though, probably because Indians don’t know how to cook it properly. I thought about getting some, but then realised that heck, even I don’t know how to cook it properly!
Although the sign says, “Offers red meat lovers what they expect in terms of joy of eating” — maybe not!
I’m not so keen on eating emu, but I’d be very happy if the shop started stocking kangaroo meat.
Nevertheless, if you’re feeling adventurous and want to try some emu meat, get it from Meats ‘n’ More. Shop 11, Eden II, Hiranandani Gardens, Powai, Mumbai. Ph: 25708345 or 9867597027.
