Do you fancy a cricket cover or bats? Cambodia
Not in all parts of the world do we consider dogs, cats, hamsters or canaries as pets. That of having an animal at home to stuff it with food, take it out for a walk and not look for anything in return is a strange custom that will have come to us because of the luxury of not being hungry.
In many parts of the world nothing is dismissed of Mother Nature and, I am sure that some of them will turn their hearts around when they see the dishes that are eaten throughout the world.
Below is a list of pets that are eaten in the world I've found myself traveling. I do not know if this collection of strange delicacies is going to whet your appetite, in any case, it is preferable to read the post after having eaten because of the bad cultural digestion.
Dog - China and Vietnam
In many restaurants in northern Vietnam and eastern China you will find dog in the menu. It is a very common meal that is served in boiled thin cuts, in stews as in the picture or in the same soup. Anyway, it is not the first dog that they catch on the street and put it in the pot. These are dogs cared for on the farm. Or at least that's what they say. I thought it was a tasty meat although right now I would not know if I thought it was chicken or beef. It is also a very common meal in South Korea.
Turtle - China
Along the Chinese coast you will find turtle in supermarkets. They cook it in a kind of dessert made of jelly with a few medicinal herbs added. The truth is that the gelatinous is not going for me, so I was left wanting to try turtle with another type of culinary art. Has anyone out there ever tried it?
Fried spiders and crickets - Cambodia
