    Unusual meats

    Further to a previous thread concerning horse meat i was wondering what other unusual meats you guys have eaten ( KEEP IT CLEAN ).
    Having eaten Horse steak in switzerland , Kangaroo , Osterich , Frogs legs , snails is there any others that might tempt ones pallet

    Although it's a bit more politically correct these days, the Carnivore restaurant at Nairobi was always good fun - pretty much any edible African animal at one time or another - and for me, crocodile was most memorable. Tastewise, I won't be lobbying Sainsbury's to get it in but it was OK.

    I've been to Carnivore's in Nairobi used to be able to eat pretty much anything except the "big 5". I enjoyed all of them especially as the only non-meat food on the table was some shredded cucumber. All this washed down with vodka, lime and honey cocktails. Happy days.

    Had most African game animals and osterich as 'Biltong' in South Africa, but also had elephants trunk! (Not a whole one!) oh, and crocodile.
    We also managed to 'cull' some impala with the wheels of a Hercules on 'black light' which got served up next day!
    Had horse in France, reindeer in Norway, snake in thailand (maybe?), grouper cheeks in florida.
    Also ate a massive black spider alive when pi55ed for a bet!
    Everything out of the ordinary tastes like chicken anyway!

    A few years ago, sainsbury's were selling alligator, kangaroo and ostrich meat.

    I tried all three however if im honest, ostrich is the only one I would eat again, the other two were nothing special.

    You might find this website amusing,
    Whilst in Africa I managed to munch my way through most of the plains game. Some of the more interesting things on offer were giraffe's tongue, porcupine and a rather tasty sausage made out of eland offal, stuffed inside its intestines and barbequed.
    Here is the fun we had trying to extract the thing,
