So while I'm sitting there enjoying my drink a totally random thing happened. This group walks in and say to this girl at the bar "You look familiar, you're Bunny" and she's says "Do I know you?", the group starts snapping pictures of her and they're like "It's Bunny". She starts laughing and says "I just had a boob job so I may look a little different, but why don't we go down under and get to know each other a little better". They all leave and I'm like WTF. I look at the bartender and he says "Scavenger hunt". NYC is a special place.
Ok back to the important thing: the FOOD.
For the appetizer, I ordered the grilled Kangaroo Skewers with Australian Pepperberry Ketchup. I wasn't sure what to expect from the kangaroo meat, but it tasted similar to beef, very tender. The skewers were juicy. The pepperberry ketchup had a sweet taste but also a slight taste of black pepper. I enjoyed these a lot, totally would have them again!

I loved everything I ate/drank at Eight Mile Creek. I plan on going back and exploring other Australian dishes, especially the Lamingtons. If you get a chance definitely check out this spot, it's totally worth it. Until next time, Buen Provecho!
