Chicken feet at a Chinese restaurant -- I don't get it

bachslunch | Jul 13, 2007 09:56 AM

I'd never gotten up the nerve to try chicken feet at a Chinese restaurant until recently, when I found some on a weekend Chinese buffet at a place in Woburn, MA. Got one to try, and couldn't get anything edible off it -- it seemed to be all rubbery and tough skin surrounding a little bit of bone. I couldn't even bite into it -- seemed like trying to tear a hunk off a tire or something.

Were these badly prepared, or did I just not get it here? Comments and assistance welcome.
