  1. People in China eat everything.

    This rat dish is a popular delicacy in Guangzhou, China.

    Many foreigners thought the Chinese passed the rat meat as chicken meat. Well, some dishonest hawkers do that. But there are eateries that sell meats of rat, snake, dog, cat, horse.... etc. I'll try to show you the actual dishes when I'm in China. ^-^

  9. Wilfrid,

    Something in life are not meant to be eaten

    Yes, I agree with you. Some crazy people just want to taste some thing uncommon.

    I encountered one scary person who wonders how differently a woman tastes, from a man. *shudders*

  11. Well I had guinea pig in Peru. I am not sure if I would try rat. Some times in business travel you get in situations where you dont want to offend the host. Oh well as long as it is not a sewer rat, but free range!

  12. Haven't tried those, and I don't feel like challenging myself to do so. :) I'll pass!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Yeeks! yucks! Scary...they eat everything, don't they ? :O Almost like how some people in other countries eat fried guinea pigs and armadillo!!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. So, have you eaten one yet? P

    Like the say about the Chinese, "Anything with its back facing the sun is edible for the Chinese".

  15. It's really jungle survival in China. Hahaha... I don't mind snakes and stuffs, not that we haven't ate those in army survival course. But rats? Yeeeeeyerrrrrrrrrrrr...

    ReplyDelete
  16. Ok, ECL, I'll pass on that too. I don't eat duck so the Peking Duck store wouldn't be for me either.

    We had a 'pass around' dinner with many, many, courses and dishes one time in Beijing [2004]. I can't remember all the meals, that one was really good.

    Happy WW, you did exceptional this time.

  23. I've lived a sheltered life. The most unusual thing I've ever eaten is frog legs. However, I don't think I would want be able to choke down rat.

  24. My daughter was born in Guangzhou (Xuwen). I wouldn't be so bold as to try that dish though. Maybe if I didn't know what it was. Happy WW.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Eew.. how does it taste? Never in my life I'm going to eat this.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hehehe ! A very provocating post, I think I would try it why not, but I couldn't eat cats, dogs or a horse that would be impossible.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Congratulations, ecl, you have successfully squashed my appetite! Gross! Yucks!

    If I didn't know what it was, I'd probably eat it though.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Why, thank you very much for helping me in my diet.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Being vegetarian, Rat would not form part of the diet! They make excellent pets. Im not sure what sort of eating a rat would make. Happy WW

    ReplyDelete
  36. Normally, FOOD is making me very hungry and drooling, but this makes me drool for other reasons.... sickness... YUK x millions!!!!

    I think this post just helped me with my hunger problem..

    Happy WW

  41. ECl, u never tried horse before? It's fairly common here, and I've tried it only once or twice. Tastes exactly like beef, but much tougher and leaner. Rats? Errr, I'd like to think it's all in the mind, and that it might even taste better than chicken, but I think vegetables are always a safer bet.. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  42. EEEWWWWW! Okay, now I've lost my appetite. lol Thanks for the info...disgusting it is. I am amazed that someone would actually WANT to eat that.
    Happy WW!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I can't imagining myself eating rats. But I guess if you don't know then it may pass.
    Thank you for the education

    ReplyDelete
  44. Yikes, I can't imagine eating that - or anything that could be that... Interesting though! Happy WW

    ReplyDelete
  45. I think I'll have to pass on the rat. Of course I don't eat chicken other than the breast.

    I guess some people are equally appalled by eating beef or any animal so we shouldn't be so sensitive to the rat.

    But still, eeek.

    Very interesting WW. I'll be back...

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  50. Are you going to tell me that it tastes like chicken? I think I'll pass on rat, dog, cat and horse. I will eat the snake though. Have a great WW and thanks for sharing. :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. well the good news is that China is on the other side of the world although I know many hunters who eat squirels who in my book are nothing more than tree rats.

    happy ww
