Have you eaten escargot or cuisses de grenouilles?

How about monkey brain?

  • I had escargot once, never again. Actually it just tasted like rubbery garlic. I didn't like the texture.

  • Escargot once. Very garlicky. Not rubbery though.

  • ive had both, but not monkey brains. i love a good plate of southern fried frog's legs...tastes like really dark meat of a duck. i dont remember anything super special about escargot.

    in China i got to try friend scorpions...tasted like chicken nuggets. oh and i like fried alligator too.

  • I had escargot once, but it was so doctored up with bacon and cheese that I could hardly taste it or notice the texture, either.

    Frog legs, I wouldn't be opposed to, but I haven't tried. They're expensive, though.

    Monkey brains--not in this life, thank you!

  • Hell no. Beef, chicken, turkey, pork, tuna. Meat only, no organs or other miscellaneous body parts. That's as far as I go.

  • I sa rattlesnake in the store and would have liked to try that, but it was pricey and I didn't know how to cook it.

    My ex used to love frog legs. He and his brothers would catch the frogs and his mom would cook the legs for them, back when they lived in Florida.

  • Err... No. I always wonder who was the first guy who saw a snail and thought "well, that looks yummi!"
