Ever since moving out of home, I've lived in fairly diverse areas for the most part. But having just relocated, there's a new restaurant nearby that has something that I just can't wait to try.
It's advertised as a "bionic burger", and while it's not pictured above the meat inside is the bit that has caught my attention. It's basically a camel burger, which sounds pretty good for a burger: camel is high in protein and it's a very rich meat, rather than something super lean like kangaroo. The richness means there should be more leniency for error in cooking before the patty turns into a rubber nightmare.
A bit of fat is always good for a burger patty, and I don't have a problem eating more of the gamier meats. (I remember as a kid, my mother went to an event at a nearby Indigenous community and came back with a platter of kebabs and sausages for the family: rabbit, crocodile and kangaroo. It took ages before I had kangaroo rare, but I remember loving crocodile as a kid.)
But as far as strange foods go, different meats doesn't really qualify as weird in the slightest. It's not like it's pigs blood, sheep's brains, or the more unusual, smellier innards available.
So I've been thinking: what's the strangest food you've ever eaten, and would you recommend it to others? And what strange foods do you enjoy that you think are a bit underrated?
