Wonder how koala tacos taste.  Koalas eat only eucalyptus,  right?  Bracing flavor, I imagine.

SquiggsIN: blame PETA?

seriously, look at the other animals they put on tacos!  What's the big deal about a lion?  Is it just because it's feline?  Seriously, all you cat people need to drop dead with your mange-ridden fleabags.


Psst, the story highlighted that the lion is classified as "threatened, not endangered".
Threatened isn't good.

Some hipster foodie douches get enjoyment out of it, though, so I'm against it just by that principle.

Ehh I don't know. This website says they'll ship you a pound of lion burger meat for $9.95 (don't know shipping costs, can't be too bad per pound). If they're selling these at $35, sounds like they've got a pretty good margin on it.
 
2013-05-09 08:14:00 PM  
Eh, people are morons. Seriously, this is just stupid.  So pigs, which have been shown to be smart- okay cows and their babies are okay, fish even endangered ones -okay. Feline? No. I don't get it.

As long as the animals are raised humanely and killed in a humane method that reduces suffering, I'm okay with this. Most of the animals raised for meat in this country aren't raised humanely.   That I'm not down with. Sure nature's not nice or neat whatever but farming's a controlled practice by us supposedly able to empathize beings.

That said,   I wouldn't eat the taco 1) that taco looks gross 2) I'm not paying $35.00 for an effing taco and 3) I don't eat mammal.  Serious that is one unappetizing picture.

There's a farm outside of Chicago, at least that's where the stuff I got was from.  I went to a little exotic food market once, and they had lion meat for something like $12 a pound, so I figured what the hell and bought it.  The burgers were fine.  Different flavor, a little bit gamy, but not terrible.  I wouldn't buy it again, just because it's pricey, but if someone gave me a pound or two, I wouldn't turn them down.

That part of "Pulp Fiction" always kinda bugged me, because it's not true. Pigs are only dirty because farmers cram them together in pens. They're actually quite cleanly by nature. I guess chalk it up to Jules simply being uneducated.

Burger meat is going to be cheap.  Looks like they're using cuts of steak.

Generally, a well run restaurant charges 3x the cost of the food.  But that's for a fairly static menu where every item gets delivered by a single vendor.  If they're putting up new, exotic items on a regular basis, they have to add the cost of that process to the food.  First they have to dream up the new item, then find a vendor, then do some test recipes, then train the staff to cook the new dish, then update the menu, etc.  That's a lot more overhead than a regular taco stand.

FWIW, I really can't comprehend the outrage.  It's meat from an animal.  Nearly every restaurant in the world sells dishes that contain animal meat.  Why is it such a big deal that the meat comes from a cat instead of a cow or a chicken or a pig?

And Gougeon knows it comes from a farm how?  Oh, that's right, because his supplier said so!

When you're dealing with an unusual/exotic/threatened species, you'd better have documented provenenance all the way down the supply chain to ensure you're buying what you think you're buying.

drjekel_mrhyde: Eat what you want, but I won't eat that shiat


csb:

Years ago, a television show formed my opinion on what to eat or not.  There was this Australian fellow, who travelled widely and ate indigenous foods.  In one episode, his guide took him to a mangrove swamp and peeled the bark of some dead mangrove thus finding a large gelatinous  creature.  The man was quite excited and our intrepid host eyed the thing dubiously and said "One man's Tucker is another man's food," and proceeded to squeeze the excess interstitial fluid out of the creature before eating whatever it was.

Anyway, what I'm saying is if someone eats it, and they have ample other choices, then it's probably worth a try.

It's all about risk/reward and high-yield. It has little to do with "cuteness", but it just so happens that the animals with the most meat and the tastiest meat are usually not very cute. If baby otter tasted like filet mignon and could be harvested for $2/lbs, we'd have Otter King restaurants on every corner.
 
2013-05-09 08:46:39 PM  
Just a publicity stunt.

Lions are carnivores, carnivore meat does not taste as good as herbivore meat.

I can't imagine that is a very ecologically friendly animal to raise either.  They're carnivores, so they will have to feed them a shiat-load of meat to raise them.  All that meet they feed them needs to come from some other animal that ate a shiat-load of grain.  In turn the grain required land, water and other resources to grow.

I want to taste that lion taco. I wish they'd serve a big serving of lion meat. Hey, isn't eating lions normal in Africa? I think I watched a National Geographic documentary about a tribe who feeds lions to make them drowsy and then they catch and kill it. They only cooked it over a fire, but just imagine what it would taste like if we fried it or cooked it in other delicious ways!

??? Pray tell how you came to the reasoning that I am under the impression said animals are not mammal?

Although looking back on it my first paragraph can be a bit clearer. I think people threatening the restaurant to be stupid and can't find a reason for it. Like why not lions? Sure eating lions, as they're threatened, isn't A-okay but it's legal and those methods are really effective or useful.

I honestly don't eat mammal though. I just eat poultry and cephalopods. I'm willing to try reptile, but the opportunity hasn't presented itself to me.

Number of lions aside, it's not terribly ecologically friendly to feed some herd animal to feed some predator to feed some other predator for it's cachet value.  I mean, I'm an omnivore and I like meat, but I'm willing to take grass fed.  (Hell, I'll take lab grown if it's tasty and environmentally friendly.)

2013-05-09 10:41:23 PM  
There was another restaurant using the same type of menu, only they were getting their lion carcasses whole (and illegally.) The problem came down to disposal of the parts of the animal that weren't edible. They were able to elude they law when disposing most of the parts. But you can't hide your lion eyes.

So, once a year I do a "theme" dinner party involving rare meats. Last year it was Lovecraft themed - 1920's outfits and cocktails. The menu consisted of deep fried alligator, black bear tenderloin slow cooked, this sliced kangaroo tenderloin, calamari, and African Lion tenderloin.

The lion was very tasty and sweet. All were procured from czimers.com. They are a big game taxidermist that deals in the meat as well. I know it may be a bit taboo, but it was quite tasty.
 
2013-05-09 10:59:49 PM  
First: This is not a liberal vs. conservative thing. I'm liberal. I see nothing wrong with eating lion as long as it's priced high and therefore low in demand.

Second: The only disgusting thing is all the PETA types and wackos making death threats and turning this into a cause. GET OVER IT. Lions aren't noble creatures that need your help, and if the lion had a chance it would eat you, so I say it's perfectly fair to eat them. They're not sentient, they're not endangered, they're not being served in McDonald's.

If it were whales or dolphins, I'd be mad (because there's more and more evidence that they're self-aware).
 
2013-05-09 11:02:57 PM  
Here's all you need to know:

"Is it legal to eat lions? Yes, according to the FDA's communications team. The African lion isn't currently a federally protected endangered species and it qualifies as a game meat, FDA spokesman Michael Herndon said in an e-mail."

It's legal, so all the vegetarians and vegans can f♥ck off.
 
2013-05-09 11:04:35 PM  
As I understand it, the folks at Big Cat Rescue of Tampa, FL (and they are, granted, not exactly an uninterested party) assert that the origin of the lion meat is dubious, since there are no "lion farms" in CONUS... So the animals come from roadside attraction castoffs, illegal pets grown too big to care for, that sort of thing.

They also point out that Richard Czimer spent six months in prison for selling meat from federally-protected tigers and leopards.  A lot of their info comes from this 2010 CNN report (though we all know what a beating CNN's reputation has taken).

I know that. That certainly is not the point I was trying to make here. I was replying to a post that was also confirming legality. I think ZeroCorpse was being a dick and making the issue too narrow. The legality is only part of the story of where that meat comes from.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom:It's all about risk/reward and high-yield. It has little to do with "cuteness", but it just so happens that the animals with the most meat and the tastiest meat are usually not very cute. If baby otter tasted like filet mignon and could be harvested for $2/lbs, we'd have Otter King restaurants on every corner.

ausfahrk: Am I seriously the only one who's outraged by this? I mean come on, people! Eating an herbivore is enough burden on the environment, but think about how many cow steaks go into making one lion steak. You're probably eating half an acre of corn in each bite.

My understanding is that Chinese/Asian cuisine can become increasingly exotic because some people are determined to eat anything in the pursuit of potential delicacies. Some Americans will eat increasingly extravagant amounts of food for rewards of dubious value. I think we can all agree that the McRib is at the intersection of dubious reward and exotic cuisine.

It's depressing because otherwise intelligent people believe this claptrap. Humans eat meat because we evolved that way. We can choose not to, and if you do, that's fine. But conflating meat eating with patriarchy is stupid.

People love lions and dolphins and will turn to violence over one being killed and eaten. They'll also not give a flying fark about the same animal being annihilated in the wild.

Well in tribal days when you reached puberty if you was a male you got sent away with just the clothes on your back and a spear. You wasnt allowed to come back( and be a man and get laid) till you had the mane of a lion.

And now I'm pretty meh on it. Though I'm curious where this farm is.

Same here. If they're being raised for food I'm OK with it. I mean, would cows and pigs exist in their current domesticated form if we didn't eat them?


No, they've been selectively bred by people for centuries to make them better adapted to supply us with food.

I wonder how long they'll stay in business now that they've pissed enough people off.  They can serve it if it's legal, but that doesn't mean they're going to keep their usual customer base.  And how many do you think are going to flock to them just for the lion tacos at $35 a piece?  Hmmmm...   I wouldn't eat one.  Just because I'm one of those hypocritical carnivores.  I might change my mind if one day I find myself starving...but I'll shoot a squirrel for stew before I'll eat a lion.

Psst, the story highlighted that the lion is classified as "threatened, not endangered".
Threatened isn't good.

fusillade762: skinink: Hey, sewer rat may taste like pumpkin pie, but I'd never know 'cause I wouldn't eat the filthy motherfarker. Lions sleep and root in shiat. That's a filthy animal. I ain't eat nothin' that ain't got sense enough to disregard its own feces.

That part of "Pulp Fiction" always kinda bugged me, because it's not true. Pigs are only dirty because farmers cram them together in pens. They're actually quite cleanly by nature. I guess chalk it up to Jules simply being uneducated.


Really, that part of Pulp FICTION isn't true? Tell me more

b0rg9: olddinosaur: Lions are carnivores, carnivore meat does not taste as good as herbivore meat.


Yeah, besides fish, I've heard pretty much the same thing.

Gator's kind of an exception.  It's still not exceptional though, IMO.


That's been my impression of every non-water carnivore I've eaten.  Carnivores taste worse than Omnivores which taste worse than Herbivores.  Plus, not only do they taste worse, their meat is harder to stop from spoiling.  Ever tried freezing bear meat?  Doesn't work until you drop your freezer temp WELL below 28.

Probably the same idiots that are trying to get the safari ranches down here in Texas shut down.

Watched a news story on how they are saving some of these exotic species for the price of allowing people to pay shiatloads to hunt a set number of them and allowing people to go on car safaris.

UsikFark: Coelacanth: Remember the lion habitat at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas? A whole lotta of those lion cubs became dinner for Chinese high rollers when they got too big.

My understanding is that Chinese/Asian cuisine can become increasingly exotic because some people are determined to eat anything in the pursuit of potential delicacies. Some Americans will eat increasingly extravagant amounts of food for rewards of dubious value. I think we can all agree that the McRib is at the intersection of dubious reward and exotic cuisine.


The Romans rolled that way too.  Peacock tongue, anyone?

fusillade762: Comsamvimes: My first thought was "WTF!" but then I read this:

"The lion meat is authentic, Gougeon said, and comes from a farm that raises the animals for meat. Such a practice is legal in the United States because lions are only considered threatened, and not endangered."

And now I'm pretty meh on it. Though I'm curious where this farm is.

Same here. If they're being raised for food I'm OK with it. I mean, would cows and pigs exist in their current domesticated form if we didn't eat them?


so you have no problem if someone breeds dogs and cats for meat? how is eating a lion any different than eating a cat or dog?

I would like to take this opportunity to reiterate my desire to eat an antelope or a gazelle. Talk about your "fast" food! 
Ha ha ha...

Who cares where it comes from? If it's legal, it's legal.

What? You think the butcher is stealing people's beloved pet lions and grinding them up for taco meat?

What's the difference if the lions are cast-offs from roadside attractions, or raised to be meat? It's still a dead lion either way, and the lion- if alive- wouldn't care where the hell you were raised. It would eat you either way.

I say any animal that would eat me if I didn't eat it first is fair game.
