Eight Mile Creek

Skewer up Kangaroo. 

Sorry, Eight Mile Creek is permanently closed.

How do you say delicious jumping marsupial in Australian? Kangaroo.

The bouncy and beloved animal is served up on skewers and in a number of other dishes at Eight Mile Creek. In a neighborhood known much better for pizza, pasta and cannolis, a taste of the outback is a welcome change for tourists trapped in Little Italy.

Update, 2018: This place is permanently closed.
