Walkabout Bar, Birmingham
The Walkabout Bar Birmingham, home of the Kangaroo burger. Thats right, remember when you used to watch Skippy on the TV, well here you can eat him*. A quick browse of the menu shows that if you go in here there really is only one choice, Kangaroo Burger. Two meaty chunks of Kangaroo in a bun with onion rings slapped on top just for the hell of it.
Don't let the green man distract you, I was not dining with the incredible hulk, just Black Gerbil1. After removing the oddly placed onion rings from the bun you find a burger which will top pretty much any beef burger you have had in your life. Flawless meat, with a taste which you just can't put into words. Sadly though, this was the only part of the meal they have tried with. The blatent home fries do nothing for me, I can cook them myself at home. But I won't let that distract me from the fact that this was the best Kangaroo burger I have had in my life (this was also the only Kanagaroo burger I have had in my life).
All this washed down with a bottle of Fosters Twist made a somewhat filling lunch. With this coming in at just under £10 for the lot you can't really complain. Junior Spesh hits Stockholm coming soon...
*Note that you can't actually eat Skippy, he probly died time ago.
