The price of food in Australia still surprises me at times.
Last night we had some nice eye fillet steak for dinner, it cost us $15 per kg.
Today, while eating breakfast, I was reading the supermarket weekly catalogue, and saw sausages at $14 per kg.
I can’t help recalling that sausages were always much cheaper than what we probably called “real meat”.
But with the quality of some of these sausages, I actually wonder which tastes better; the sausages or the eye fillet.

Fillet steak a.k.a. eye fillet or tenderloin.
Famously tender, the fillet is arguably the most desirable of steaks. It’s supremely lean with a mild and subtle flavour. australianbeef.com.au/know-your-meat/
