Where is the weird stuff?

popvulture | Oct 28, 2011 12:01 PM

I was just watching Bizarre Foods and wondered if there has ever been a post on here about unusual stuff in Austin.

I'd love to hear what people's experiences have been in town. Any price range, any cuisine... my experiences haven't been too wild; more just the usual oddities. Tongue (from cheap tacos to the lamb tongue dish at Olivia), sweetbreads, gizzards, monkfish liver, pho and all of its interesting mystery meats.

I've had brains a couple of times but never have seen them in town. Calf fries are something I've been curious to try (albeit scared in an odd "threat to my manhood" way), but haven't seen either. Anyway... weird stuff. Let's talk about it.
