Strange Burmese Delicacy of the Week 30

Burma still has lots more to offer in terms of food delicacies to decipher. Last time’s picture from the restaurants of Rangoon was a lovely type of salad made from… pickled tea leaves. We prefer the drinking type, but it was a nice change to lettuce.

This week is a bit more, erm, bloody than a mere leaf. It was presented to us in a curry house in Rangoon, much to our delight/shock. Even the tiniest inkling to taste it was dashed when the proprietor said he wouldn’t touch it with a barge pole. So we snapped it instead – just for your pleasure.

It is quite obvious what it is, but what animal does it come from? Answers below!



  1. I say cow and Marot thinks it is a sheep.

    • Both so close!

  2. Monkey?

    • Luckily for the monkey, no
