An American diner breakfast?

Hmmm, what is that exactly?
I recommend the Full English breakfast as an alternative - fried sausage, bacon, eggs and mushrooms. Tomatoes, baked beans, fried bread or hash browns are all optional extras, of course.

Barrimundi? Could I have a recipe, please? And what sort of meat goes in aussie meat pies anyway? Dingoes?? Seriously, I have tried sushi and tapas and also cooked a mackerel I caught myslf the same day (can't get fresher than that, mate!)

I do wonder what what 'roo and 'gator taste like, but Moreton bay bugs? Ewww!...

Follow the link at the top of the entry for an explanation from the BBC as to what they all are.
Kangaroo is like a gamey sort of steak, can't help you with alligator. Like everything else, I guess it takes just like chicken.

I've eaten all the ones you've eaten except haggis, but I've also had octopus, scallops and clam chowder, but then I like all seafood much more than you!

Most of that list I have tasted, but I think it is also fair to say that most of that list I wouldn't eat. I like 1, 4, 30, 34 and vegetarian 48. Some of the others, like Chinese food, pancakes and pizza would be good if they were good examples, but dire if bad. On a different note, I think the most disgusting food I ever ate was whale blubber. I said, 'ate', but I never did. I licked it and that was quite disgusting enough. Totally horrible, awful. The black whale meat I could eat if I had to, in order to prevent death but that is the only reason for eating it. The blubber? I would rather just die. Why was I eating these things? We were on a diving epedition to the Faero islands and hosted a BBQ for the local dive club who had been very hospitable to us. They brought this delicacy along for us. We Brits, well travelled Brits, all found the blubber just intolerable.
