Something You Won’t See On a Menu In Wichita Falls (I hope!)

(Photo by Christopher Furlong/Getty Images)

Our fair city has certainly diversified it’s palate over the past several years.  It seems like when I was growing up you basically had two menu choices: Mexican and Bar-b-que.  Now, we have the great local fair as well as some of the better chain restaurants around.  If you can’t find a meal to please you around here these days, you simply cannot be satisfied.

Of course we Americans are used to steak, shrimp, tamales, fresh vegetables and so forth.  But folks from other countries sometimes dine on things that most American’s wouldn’t even consider.  The French have escargot.  The Scottish have Haggis, defined by Wikipedia as “a kind of savoury pudding containing sheep’s pluck (heart, liver and lungs…minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, and traditionally encased in the animal’s stomach…”. The British, Spanish and Portuguese have various forms of blood pudding, made by cooking animal blood.  I’ll stick to my ribeye and baked potato, thanks.

And so many of you do have an affinity for calf fries.  Call em what you like, people.  Testicles are testicles.  As gross and unappetizing as all of that may sound, it does not hold a candle to this story.  Only Hannibal Lecter could possibly find anything remotely tasteful about this dish.  And you certainly won’t find this being served up in Texas anytime soon.  Grab a bottle of Pepto and check this out.
