Duck tongue

Yesterday we had dim sum in a Chinese restaurant with a couple of Jenni's colleagues and mates. To keep a short story shorter I will get straight to the gist of this post. Someone had the cheek to order a dish of duck tongues. Not even Jennifer, an expert of eating weird stuff (like frogs, chicken feet and sea cucumber) would dare touch it.

Anyway I had me a little nibble, if only to serve as warning to future dum sum-goers. The tongues, served in black bean sauce (I believe), have bones in them. It isn't as disgusting as I thought it would be. It certainly was edible (if you really have no choice) but due to the weird texture and the fact that it felt more tasteless rubbery chicken, I decided to stop after two tongues. Not something I would order voluntarily, and neither should you!

At least we had fun with Brain Age after the massive meal.

Actually I really like it.... Hot chickens feet are also ok, but I struggle a bit with the cold boneless chickens feet!

I guess I've been quite well trained though, having being sat on a table full of Chinese people who take great delight in putting the most challenging things in my bowl and closely watching me eat them!!!

@Tony, lol. No way would I ever touch chicken feet. Not in my life.

@Anon, Sorry, my bad. I posted the ping while using Opera (I know, I know what a crappy browser) and only pressed once. No idea how it ping'ed it thrice. I've already e-mailed the PPS guy (whatever his name is) and asked him to delete the excess pings.
