What does dog taste like?

#1
Went to a show in Southend on Saturday night. On my way back to the hotel - via a couple of cars that seemed to have collided, then run into the crash barrier outside a local water hole - I decided to call in at a Cantonese Take Away. It was fucking revolting.

But I was so starved after a full day traveling, followed by a fews hours work... not even a pint had passed my lips, so perhaps that makes me one of their more discerning clients.

I got the Special Cop Suey, the usual conglomeration of bean sprouts and meats etc.

There was this dark brown meat in there, it kinda looked like very thinly sliced venison, but it tasted like the smell of dog meat. Have any of you eaten dog? If yes, does it taste like the smell of pedigree chum?

I ate dog in Thailand. It had been soaked in chilli oil before hand and then cooked on a bbq. Texture wise, it could have been beef. Too much chilli to really taste the meat though.

In a small roadside cafe in France, I saw 'filet de loupe' on the menu. I knew I recognised the word, but it did not come to me immediately. 'Loupe' is, of course, 'Wolf'. Later, discussing this, my mate informed me that they don't actually use wolf meat, they use Labradors.

You'd be barking mad to eat dog.








Coats already on, Taxi for 1!

I thought same...but its also fish. Loup de Mer.
Its probably served with fried apples...apples of the earth that is.

Eating dog is not enough for the NAAFI - almost clean enough for the cookery section. Has anyone talked to a pornostar who's blown a dog or even done it themselves after too much cheap lager?
I used to eat a lot of dog but gave it up when I realised it wouldn't help me to lick my own balls.

Dog meat, I'm afraid to say, tastes like whatever the proprietor wants it to taste like.

Let me explain...
I lived in China for 3 years and took great pride in eating every reptile, invertibrate, mammal and insect not available in the West.

Dog was a special interest of mine. I even blogged about it entitled "The Dog Blog", but took it down after the company I was working for found out about it and thought the negative publicity brought about by dog owners inadvertantly clicking on it would bring about negative publicity, plus I thought I'd write a book about it called "For the love of good dog, a man's stomach's best friend", funnily enough it never took off.

Anyway, to cut a long story, different regions have different tastes and the dog is prepared accordingly, eg Sichuan province has very spicy food and it is almost impossible to differentiate between dog, beef and pork (I know I've tried), Shanghai has very sickly sweet food and the meat is sweet and sour thin strips, again indistinguishable from almost anything else. Then throw in the MSG factor...

I even wanted to go to a dog farm to have it 'fresh from the knackers yard', but was told I was being "Culturally insensitive" by my sp*nk guzzling line manager and was given a formal warning for my canine, culinary behaviour.

All in all, if your looking for the definitive 'taste' of dog, eat your own.

Always a great party trick come a Saturday night in Bordon. The number of eejits attending sick parade on the Monday with cricked backs was astounding.

BTW, what was the name of the dog? :?

I've had it a couple of times. Sometimes it was like pork, sometimes like beef. I guess what the dog was fed on makes a difference and of course, how it's prepared - marinades, sauces, etc.

It wasn't bad, I have to say.

Coming back through Bahrain after a stint in Oman, we did the usual bars and everyone gathered at the food area, the sit down jobs wanted the restaurant rather than the street vendors but the waiters came outside to the street vendors for the grub anyway.

to cut a long story short, the Squadron had put a bit of a rush on the place so they sent out for a resupply, the carcass was brought in a ropy old van rolled in a carpet. As it was taken inside one of the boys pointed out that the carcass had paws and not hooves...

Cue for lots of voluntary projectile vomitting....

Depends on the breed.

Allow me to be the first to say it tastes "woof".

I'll get me coat.
And what a lovely glossy coat that is.
