Toowoomba pubs serve up delicious Aussie 'road kill'

A STRING of Toowoomba pubs have added something different to their menus - serving up "road kill."

The Gowrie Road Hotel, Newtown Hotel and Zack's are now selling Aussie bush-tucker which is locally sourced from farmers.

The Road Kill Mixed Grill is made up of marinated kangaroo fillet, tender buffalo patty, juicy emu sausage, crispy boar bacon and a duck egg.

Gowrie Road Hotel general manager Kurt Woodlock said the dish was brought back due to popular demand.

"We trialled this dish last November and it was quite popular and was a great talking point," he said.

"Some people had mixed feelings over it but most people thought it was great, and this time round people are loving it.

"It's a good way for people to try something they may not have eaten before.

"I've eaten it, and I love it."

The mixed grill costs $19.90 as is available until the end of the month.

The pubs host a different special each month such as selling American dishes or hot chilli dishes.
