Interesting topic here. I had to think about it for a minute because typically if I know of something I want to try I chase it down like I’m starving to death. One thing I haven’t tried that is supposed to be delicious is walleye.

You know over in China town I Houston the yellow onion influence is really good. I’m not sure how they do that but it’s a nice flavor

If you name the probably 25 or so edible fish in this country, I have not eaten them all. I have enough of them to know that I will eat almost any fish. Crabs, shrimp, crawfish and any other aquatic animals that I have had, I liked.

It is the same with red meat. I have eaten plenty of whitetail and some axis, mule deer, goat and oryx. I have never had nilgai or some of the other wild game animals however I doubt that I would turn them away. The same goes for frogs, rattlesnakes, any poultry, etc.

I have eaten every type of bean and vegetable ever put in front of me. I don’t particularly like beets or turnips but I would eat them. Asparagus, cauliflower, Broccoli, okra, any kind of greens including bok choy, etc., and I am good to go.

About the only thing I do not like is liver. Yes, I’ve had it cooked the right way. What it is does not bother me however I just do not like the taste to the point of, I would literally have to be starving to death and a piece of liver was between me and eternity.

Very few items on my list. Wife and I will do a bag of snails in garlic and butter for lunch.

Currently chasing a bowl of turtle soup in Houston. Looks like I have to buy a sports coat to get into Brennens. Guess I should have one or two in the closet anyway.

Any other ideas on turtle soup in H town??????

This is un-Christain and un-American to not have eaten butter beans. Please deactivate your TBH account until you have some!!! Lol.

Growing up we were poor. Beans went a long way! I love all forms of beans and cornbread. For the times we have them now I almost go back in time.

My Dad would roast up Squad Pigeon and considered it a delicacy. Basically a tiny dark meat chicken and closer to a quail than anything.
Not my favorite, but unusual today.

Don't know about a restaurant, but have had it a few times. It's great. Used to be a bar in fannett on the bayou that would have a turtle cook-off.

I almost forget: I’ve never had Wagyu or Kobe beef. I specifically want to try olive wagyu, which is supposed to be the rarest beef in the world. I found a place selling it last month during what I guess is their harvest season, so now I have an olive wagyu ribeye in my freezer. Still need to cook it though. I am VERY excited about it too.

Don't know if you are missing out, but they are good, especially if the cook threw in a ham bone and simmered it with the beans.
