Duck Feet, and your Fear Factor Moment

michele cindy | Aug 23, 2006 02:08 PM

The other day I had Dim Sum at the Dragon Palace on Centre St. in NYC. I've been there a few times and the food is always good. The woman came by with the cart, and she showed me really quickly what was in each steel basket. I said, what's in that one?? She said Duck blah blah blah. I love duck, so I said sure. I'll try it. Great she said this is my favorite dish! She then spooned out a large bowl of braised duck feet. The Chinese woman at the table I was seated with also asked, do you like the dish? I said yes. I ate most of them, although the webs made me really squeamish, but the little legs were ok (wondering if you can fry duck feet, then I may like them). The ladies also ordered a bowl, they pulverized the entire foot. The gist of this is that I felt I had to eat them or else it would have been rude not too. Has anyone else have similar experiences to share? For me, this was a Fear Factor moment.
