El Salvadoran Consume de Garrobo?

rworange | Jul 4, 2005 04:32 AM

So the daily special at this Salvadoran restaurant today is Consume de Garrobo. There were language limitations, so I didn't ask. I'll just look it up on the web ... uh

It's either the "long, sweet, succulent, pods of the carob tree" usually eaten by animals or a tan lizard from Central American (usually Guatamala) sometimes eaten by locals.

Any clue what this was.

Gee, and I usually get adventuorus and order new specials. If that was lizard stew, all I can say is I would have been very sorry if I looked this up after the fact.

In the link below there is a picture of the lizard with facts. Also called "Jesus Christ Lizard" because it runs so fast it can run on water. I know if I had ordered it today, and it turned out to be lizard, I'd be saying something along those lines ... JC ... lizard!!!

Can't be. How would they keep it IN the water of the stew pot.

I mean, come on, this is the suburbs of San Francisco. It is chain wonderland for the most part. They can't be serving lizards, can they? Olive Garden is starting to seem down right appealing.
