Emu in mince and sausage form is more pop­u­lar but re­mains a very ac­quired taste.

“I don’t mind it,” Mr Travers said.

“It has a very strong gamy flavour and is re­ally dark – the steaks are nearly black so it’s not ap­peal­ing to look at.”

Sounds rough, but it does have a lim­ited cus­tomer base.

“One woman bought stacks of it,” Mr Travers said.

“She lives up at Cape Trib and makes it into emu pies.”

Mighty Nice Meats cops a lot of pass­ing tourist trade due to its spot in a shop­ping cen­tre.

Cu­ri­ous vis­i­tors seem to pre­fer sta­ple game meats like croc­o­dile and that other star of the Aus­tralian coat of arms.

“We sell a fair bit of kan­ga­roo, not just to tourists ei­ther,” Mr Travers said.

Croc and ap­ple snags, roo and ba­con sausages, quail, and poussin (chick­ens killed at just a few weeks old) are a few of his other strange of­fer­ings.
