Have you eaten an alpaca?

I know I know, they are cute and furry and have these big doe eyes. But what do they taste like?

To find out, I went down to The Berry Hotel, funnily enough at Berry, and tried their Alpaca Burger.

This little number was in the 2014 SMH’s Good Pub Guide’s Top Six Burgers, in fact it topped the list.

Sure there’s a novelty value of alpaca, but the burger comes with locally made bread, onion jam, roasted tomato and this truly is locovore food – the alpacas come from 1km up the road at the Illawarra Alpaca Farm.

The verdict? Tastes like lamb – with a bit of beef thrown in too.

Here it is - The Berry Hotel - home of the alpaca burger

Berry is super-cute - it will be even better once the highway bypass is finished

The decor of The Berry Hotel could do with a facelift
