    Default Your favorite "weird" or "rare" Dominican foods

    Mr DR I'm biting off your post.

    I had asked in your post if anyone knew what bofe was so I got inspired and decided to come up with this post.

    This post is not for those with a faint stomach. I know there are many people that like to eat "weird" or "rare" things. I am one of them. For example when I went to India last year I had snake for the 3rd time in my life (had a few other things but won't dare to post on here).

    When in the D.R. I like to eat certain "weird" or "rare" things. Bofe being one of them. Bofe is the cow's lungs. The way it's prepared is they put oregano and lots of salt on it and put it out to dry. It is then fried and served with the side of your choice. I usually like it with batata frita.

    Another food I like is Ubre. Ubre is the cow's tities. This one can be prepared boiled or fried. I prefer mine fried.

    A lot of you might be asking "WHERE THE HELL DID THIS COME FROM"??? Some of you might not even know about these foods. Some of you might even say this is "chopo" food. But you know what - I DON'T CARE. I just wanted to share this with those on the board that like to eat "weird" or "rare" things.

    Anyone brave enough to add a comment about your favorite?

    Some people here in the DR and in Central America eat iguana meat. I visited an iguana breeding project in Honduras once.

    D.R. morsilla is bloody good. And as a ground-pounder in Central Texas, the Kid ate armadillo twice - taste like chicken. Then we read about the armadillo-leprosy connection and we got scared.

    I always see things like tongue, chickens' feet, etc at chimichurri trucks or the butcher and wonder who eats them. I think next time I will give them a try and see for myself how they are. Why not? It would be a waste of an animal to throw part away.

    In Peru, I ate guineau pig and that was ok. Although, at first I thought it was a bird with the little feet on my plate.

    i thought it was wierd when a friend of mine bought himself a Christmas present. Cabeza de vaca. The whole thing. Skinned and roasted.
    i was visiting a contact in mao one afternoon. They were in the process of preparing a chicken for soup. i grew up in the suberbs and never had that eperience. So they showed me how to pluck it. When we cut it open, there were 4 eggs inside. 2 were fully formed and ready to come out. The other two werethe llema coved in a membrane. Those went in to the soup. I enjoyed them a lot.
    I can't get myself to eat mondongo to this day. I know it's one of the more tame exotic foods. I just can't get over the manure smell of it while i am eating.

    I used to eat mondongo a lot with salsa picante y lemon with white rice. Mondongo is enjoyed the most after a long night out at clubs and then a 3am stop over at Marchena (santiago). Then one day I had a mondongo with some seriously bad smell and I got turned off for good. That mondongo was in supermercado central's cafeteria.
