In India they call them "thutu kadda". Outside kitchens. I ate a dosa and fried eggs. And honestly they were the BEST eggs and dosa I've ever tasted. And it looked clean too despite all the pollution and unhygenic places there

Wintermute The food in Taiwan is excellent. Just don't look in the kitchen.

J. Tithonus Pednaud I also went to a place in rural South Korea, just outside Jeonju, that specialized in dog. I left the place after the owner insisted that I pick which one of the thin, caged dingo-like dogs I wanted him to beat and then butcher for my consumption. I wanted to try dog - and eventually did - but that experience was just a little to intense for a Sunday brunch.

The place also had a dirt floor, as I recall.

J. Tithonus Pednaud I once went to a strip club on the Quebec border that served food.

The place had stained green and yellow shag carpeting everywhere including the top of the bar. Our waitress served us with a cigarette with three inches of ash hanging from her lip and an old trachea scar across her neck. Right after dropping off our order she shambled onto the makeshift stage - really just a step up (also covered in shag) - where she actually fed a quarter into the jukebox set up there and stated 'dancing'.

My carny buddies and I bailed shortly after she revealed fresh caesarean scars.

Kitsa lol

In France and I think I vaguely remember Italy too, dogs just come into restaurants with their owners and sit down. Didn't see any dog turds, though.

My dad used to go to Taiwan on business all the time and said that he once saw a street vendor throwing live eels into a pot of boiling water. He said the eels would try to slither out and the guy would throw them back in. My dad found a McDonald's and that's all he ate for like 2 months...came back all waxy and sick, but he wanted nothing to do with the eels.

Wintermute Hole in the wall restaurant in an alley in Hangzhou China. After I started eating my tomato and egg I noticed there was a dog turd on the floor.

ZeldaQueen I guess for me it'd be the Sbarros at my local mall's food court. I didn't think it was too bad, but apparently it was shut down for violating health codes.

My parents once at a place where the waitress quit and walked out before they even finished their meals. They also ate at a restaurant in Boston where the waitresses are told to be rude to you. My dad claimed that he talked back to their waitress when she started up and she smacked him. It's one of my life's goals to eat at that restaurant.

Fathom Zero Ditto, man. Though, there are less of them here.

Kitsa Yes, there is much scrapple around here.

When I was a kid, it sounded to me like something delicious made from little scraps of apple. Boy was that a nasty surprise.

Terra Oh. Like chorizo, then.

BTW I love the note in your edit.

Colonel Flagg Haggis, made from pigs.

EDIT: OK, my apologies, I'm being obstructive. Scrapple is what's left over from pigs after you've used about as much as you can from the cuts you want. The "scraps" are then fed into a grinder and puréed. Corn meal or starch is added for texture, and salt and spices to taste.

I've known about it since forever, as it's a staple of the "Pennsylvania Dutch" or Amish/Mennonite sects of Lancaster county - about 50 miles west of Philadelphia. I'm guessing they have a similar "pork by-product" in other enclaves, such as those in Iowa, Ohio and North Carolina.

Slice it thin and fry it up until it's crisp, and it's actually quite tasty.

Haggis = Scrapple made out of sheep.

It's not bad, actually.

i too have a mexican meat market right around the corner. you dont have to go around to the back to get a taco lol, but they do have some wild shit there. headcheese(brains), cow tongue, lips etc . all of which can be put on a taco served with cilantro which covers up any flavor.

btw why are you guys eating in the bathroom?

DougClayton4231 I got one of the lunch ladies' chin hairs in my lunch in middle school. Does that count?
Mar 28th, 2010 07:11 PM
Chojin probably the 'independent caterers' at every school i've gone to
Mar 28th, 2010 03:25 PM
The Leader I'm sorry for your loss.
Mar 28th, 2010 01:44 PM
Grislygus God I wish that restaurant was still open


They had an old guy playing a piano in the lobby back in the day. Now it's a nickle and dime sushi place







I'm fucking depressed now, man, I we gave that old guy a huge tip when we visited for my older cousin's graduation dinner, he was awesome

I always took them at their word that it was black pudding, but according to a cursory search on Wikipedia it was NOT. God only knows what it was.

Which is horrifying, because the gritty lump of substance that I was served in that restaurant definitely had blood as an ingredient. It was served alongside this giant platter with a wide meat selection and sheep's brains, all of which were fucking delicious; though I'm still not sure how the restaurant qualified as "Brazilian".





And now I notice that somehow I've gotten close to the actual conversation topic.

What the fuck?

Kitsa Blood, glorious blood.

One thing I absolutely would not ever be able to eat...and this isn't even a meat product...is huitlacoche.
