    So I’m watching Bizarre Foods America:

    Turtle butchering with the aid of a air hose… damn.

    Made me wonder though: If Andrew Zimmern asked you what he should film in Columbus, where would you send him?

    Dunno if even Zimmern is ready for that ;-)

    Maybe some of the Ethiopian or Somali joints? Indian joints like Dosa corner?

    That dish at Fortune with the cubes of blood. I just couldn’t like it. I tried it, and I’m super proud of that.

    That sounds like a definite add, although the on-line reviews are kinda mixed. There was an ownership change? Have to wonder if that’s still on the menu…

    Not that it is all that bizarre, but the chicken feet at the Sunflower Restaurant are pretty gnarly.

    You don’t like cubes of blood, huh? Weird!

    It’s still on the menu, and I happen to like it. I also like their other savory “jellies” – one were these crazy pale blue opaque cubes, sort of salty and sour.

    Zimmerman is used to eating the eyeballs out of an undead creature – I’m not sure anything we have in town will come close to measuring up.

    Have to swing by there, then.

    You’re right, of course… we may not be weird enough.

    Why isn’t PETA getting involved? `Sickening. Also, the time he ate the beating heart of a frog.

    I was being a bit facetious… though I also witnessed the beating-heart-of-a-cobra (the animal was dead – the heart continues to beat). I’m sure PETA is all over him, like they are anyone who is in the public eye & eats meat.

    Perhaps PETA could throw some naked women in a cage in his honor or something.

    I’d send him to Kihachi for squid that’s been aged, in a sauce that contains salt & its own liver, for 15 years. While he’s there, he might give the ankimo (monkfish liver) a shot.

    If Diaspora still has the (I believe it’s silkworm) pupa dish, that’d fit the bill.

    And, I’m pretty certain Chuchay’s could scare up some nice balut.

    Fortune does carry a wide variety of dishes that feature off-cuts and/or blood. The sliced cow stomach dish is friggin’ delicious! (as are many, many of their dishes).

    The okra stews at Intercontinental and Drelyse aren’t especially challenging due to the ingredients, but I swear they’re the exact consistency of snot and about as appetizing. The thought of it grosses me out more than anything else I’ve mentioned… and I like damned near everything else at either of those restaurants.

    Chicharron at a taco truck might work. It’s pig skin (and associated subcutaneous fat) that’s been cubed and simmered in a sauce. It’s, let’s say, texturally challenging.

    Oh, and if I really wanted to make Zimmern say ‘uncle’, I’d take him to Skyline.
