Can you get kangaroo meat anywhere in Busan?
« on: March 25, 2011, 07:56:31 am »
I know this might seem like a strange request. In Australia, kangaroo meat is common; you can get it in supermarkets. I'm just wondering if you can get it here, too. I noticed a lot of the beef comes from Australia. Has anyone seen kangaroo?

Cheers.

You might be able to order it frozen online from Gmarket or Auction.co.kr.  I've seen venison and ostrich on there before.  Thinking of making a kangaroo stew?  Heard it's rough as heck until you simmer it down?

There's a shop in Ulsan that stocks some hard to find meat, and we're only 20 minutes away on the KTX.  I've seen Australian lamb there.  I'll check it out and let you know.

Ha! Your poor neighbours!
Kangaroo meat tastes lovely but, as it cooks, the smell is so strong!

Aww man, I could really go for a piece of marinated Skippy right about now. Om nom nom, love how Coles back home stocks the mini roast kangaroos.

Let me know if you have any success!

On the topic of hard to find meats, has anyone seen horse meat anywhere on the mainland? I had it before on Jeju, but haven't found it anywhere else.

Here in Korea, too.  Not too common on the mainland, but it's popular down on Jeju.  Sashimi's the best.
C is for cookie, that's good enough for me.

there's a wierd meat district in Somyeon.

i don't know about a market, but there are dog, frog, turtle, whale, etc.  restaurants all seem to be on the same street.
