Things you've eaten on holiday....

that you probably shouldn't have.

With all this talk of lifting the whaling ban I thought
I'd use the oppurtunity to confess that I was
duped into eating whale meat once in Japan.

Anyone else care to confess alll ? ......

Aha! Forgot horse as a choice.

Just remember that "steack hache a cheval"
on a menu isn't horse, it means burger with
a fried egg riding on top.

Sausages made of testicles (of indeterminate source) in France. We asked the waiter what these lovely saucissons were made of and he laughed and pointed to his groin. Unless he was referring to the gravy of course...

Re: Things you've eaten on holiday....

When my mate Nick and I went to Russia in 1990 we spent the week eating these weird burgers which we christened Horse Burgers, although I have no way of knowing what they were made of exactly.

I also went to a birthday party of an Icelandic friend, but turned down the sharks testicles...

Re: Things you've eaten on holiday....

I've had shark something or the other a few times, like shark fin soup etc and I believe I have also had a kangaroo steak but that was a long time ago. I don't regret having had those though

I inadvertently have eaten a bit of human once though, not a whole one mind, but a little incy bit of one Don't start the murder hunt yet though folks ... I think it was when I was young and I tried biting of some scab/bit of flesh to the side of my nail or something Recycling

Well shark fin soup is something you should steer clear of. Typically the shark is captured just for its dorsal fin ie cut off dorsal fin and dump the still live shark back in ocean to slowly die.
The giant clam is aslo brutalised in a similar way for Asian cooking. The muscle that the clam uses to close its shell is cut out and the clam left to die slowly.

Re: Things you've eaten on holiday....

As far as eating shark is concerned , any one who has eaten Flake from an Australian Fish and Chip shop has eaten shark .
But I do not eat Kangaroo as it is "wild Game" and with wild game , unless you hunt , kill and gut it your self ,you never know what you are gettiing or how it was handled between the animal dying and you getting it on your plate.

That's a bit bloody wasteful.

Here it's normally shark steaks. (You can normally see the
whole shark in the fish shop when they get one in.)
