If you had a buffalo burger with all the fixins', you probably wouldn't have a thought that it was anything other than beef.
I had an ostrich burger at an ostrich farm in Aruba this winter. It did not have a distinctive taste that I noticed in that form. My lunch partners had a marinated ostrich tenderloin and they felt that the sauce obscured any taste differences from beef.
The guides at the ostrich farm tells you they don't cook and serve the ostriches you are seeing but that they import ostrich meat from a 'nearby island'. Later on in the tour, they tell you they hatch lots of ostrich babies and export the extras to a 'nearby island'!. Hmmmm! Verrrrry interesting!
