We went to a friend's son's 1st birthday party at a Chinese restaurant. They were raised on this stuff, I was not. The shark fin soup was okay, but then when I reached for what I thought was an egg roll, it was a fried chicken head. They said I was lucky for getting that one. (woo. woo. lucky me.) Then, I just about died when they passed the duck feet. No duck, just feet. Standing there, all arranged on the platter.


Needless to say, we went to Burger King after that meal.

I've eaten Rocky Mountain Oysters (which around here are pig testicles), Alligator, turtle, squid, Rattlesnake, raccoon, squirrel and wild rabbit.
I liked everything except the raccoon, which was awfully greasy in spite of the BBQ sauce.

Fresh water fried turtle (which was yummy), frog legs, tripe onboard a French Navy ship (was good as long as I didn't think about what I was eating), forced to eat hog brains,ewww, armadillo (tastes like pork with funny bones). Word of warning, don't go looking for armadillo as we found out later that some armadillo are carriers of leprosy. I honestly don't know if it is dangerous to humans or not, but it will never pass my lips again. Have also had mystery meat in a taco in Tijuana. Only ate one bite and it was NOT beef or pig.

I would have to thank my Muslim neighbors I had once for the strangest things I have ever eaten. It was on the first night of Id-al-Fitr (the Feast of Fast Breaking) following Ramadan. I was envited over to participate in the salughter of the lamb (I kept trying to tell Sam it was a Goat - but he kept saying no, not, it's a lamb) and to participate in the feast. I don't remember how many grills they had set up in the back yard - but there were a bunch. After the goat was slaughtered, bled, skinned, and butchered the meat went onto the grills - and the men sat around a grill containing the "good" stuff ... the organ meats.

I felt honored to have been invited, and didn't want to offend anyone (there were about 20 people there) - so I couldn't refuse anything offered to me. But, I'll tell you, grilled goat's eyeball and lung are not among my favorite culinary memories!

Michael you are to be commended. Afraid I would have either fainted or gotten sick at the sight of that treat.
