Things no longer hopping at Eight Mile Creek

I took some friends out to dinner this past weekend, and suggested Eight Mile Creek for Aussie food. When we arrived, we noticed that half of us had menus with Kangaroo options (skewers on the Appletizers list and loin on the Entrees) and half of us did not. When we asked the waiter, he said that they were no longer ALLOWED to serve Kangaroo (not clear is this was the City, FDA or whom) and that the older menus were being taken out of circulation. A pity, since the last time was there, I was told by the dinner arranger (a Vegetarian) that it was not acceptable to ORDER Kangaroo in her presence (however, the Emu carpaccio was still okay).

Other than the lack of Roo, the Emu, Tuna, Barramundi, Lamb and Sticky Date pudding were all excellent, as were (needless to say) the Australian wines.
