Having partaken of the Delicious Chowhounds Offal Lunch on 2/21/03, the following makes me wonder if we have merely a pedestrian palate after all.
From another site/author:
"We make far too big a fuss about the eating of dog meat and other "unusual" critters and parts thereof. My son lives in Shanghai and goes along when his friends want to have dog in their hot pot. When we were there we saw "horse intestines" and "donkey's penis" featured among the appetizers at a Xinjiang restaurant...... Despite all that I suspect that Tony somehow has to turn off all his senses when he quaffs such delicacies as "deer dick wine'
Chowhounds DC, where's the next no-fuss lunch!
