Question Weird and wonderful Meat dish

Hi all,

What's the most unique (dare I say strange) meat dish you have ever eaten or cooked?

whale in a type of stew with wine, onions, wild mushrooms, although I did not know it was whale when I ate it. It rather tasted like loin of pork. (not in this country, at my cousins B&B in Norway)

The food I've had the hardest time eating was frog... I just dont like it much.

Other than that I'll just list what I enjoy:

Stingray: dried, shredded and in broth. Insanely good.

Intestine, brain, kidneys, stomache: in a variety of Mexican and Chinese cooking. Be it menudo, tacos de tripa, "assorted noodle" or whatever, it's great stuff. As for american uses I love dense, spicy sausage with ton's of beef heart in it.

And like Luv's I too have some hitchiker leg's in my fridge... I mean chicken legs officer... oh boy... I might be going away for a long time.

...

Goat, frog, snails, rabbit, alligator
and I had a piece of jerky made from Kangaroo once. It was good.

I suppose it had to be bear meat... Someone gave my grandpa some and he passed it on to me YESH I refused to eat it, just as I did my pet rabbit, my fraternal Grandmama tried to pass off as chicken...

What a variety of 'other meats' we have here. Now I do not feel so weird eating whale (also had reindeer over there).

Never had a wierd meat, other than those they put in McDonald's hamburgers . But I have had buffalo (American Bison) venisan, veal, potted meat (don't look at the ingredient list), head cheese, grouse, beaver, smails, frog legs, fried squid tentacles, raw fish, and raw octopus (in Korea), pickled pig's feat, and probably others that I've forgotten. Never intentionaly swallowed an insect, though wihile riding bicycles, motorcycles, etc. Have swallowed the occasional gnat or mosquito, truly a disgusting experience.

Ive had almot all the ones he mentioned. Pig's feet can be great. I was also going to include a joke but I dont want to get banned today.

As for insects there's toasted grasshoppers that taste like peanuts and those honey ants I had in the south that tasted kinda like raisins.
