Neither Sploid nor the site it ganked the content from mention anything about a restaurant that's selling them.

It's actually really good done right, but yeah, just stick to your eggs and whatever bland crap you eat.

The creator commented on pornburger:

"these burger fantasies are all one-offs from my kitchen in DC at the moment. "

Still, somebody will start selling them soon enough.

You prefer something that came out of a cow's mouth to something that came out of a chicken's ass?

Yeah, the joke is that the speaker does not consider what eggs come out of.

Never pass up an opportunity to feel superior, though.

i really like tongue, pork belly is bacon and i'd live with whatever the other stuff is.

The only way this thing could be more awesome is if someone were stuffing two of them in my mouth right now.

I've not had it (yet), but it's supposed to be pretty similar to stuff like cod cheeks. The most absolutely awesome flavor and texture you can get from the animal.

Plus, after you start eating it regularly you can take some to work or something and inform your co workers that beautiful aroma they smell is tongue, then watch 'em squirm.

I'm not naming names, but some of "us" are a bit touched in the head region, or else, no there is no else, some of you are just slow.

During hunting expedition in Great Basin Nevada in the 1970s stopped and ate at a family style sit-down Basque restaurant.  They placed big bowls on the common tables and you passed them around until empty.

I had some of the most delicious, tender, melt-in-your-mouth beef and I had about three full servings before I found a small piece of pebbled skin, kinda like a football. I asked the waitress next time she came round what is this I'm eating? "Oh, dear ... that's tongue!"

My mom had a recipe for pickled cow tongue that the angles wrote poems about. Of course, it was slices in a way that one would never know it was tongue, but, my goodness, I miss that dish. And my mom.

Bao bun is, like most Asian breads, terrible. Also tongue is only "good" if you don't have a supply of normal meat.

Eddie Huang figures other hipsters will pay him $5.50 a pop for these things.

vodka: Bao bun is, like most Asian breads, terrible. Also tongue is only "good" if you don't have a supply of normal meat.


Trolling, I assume?

Bao bun is actually quite nice.  Steamed to cook, chewy, glutenous, sticky goodness.

And of course tongue is delicious, one of the tastiest bits of the cow.

Bao is awesome. This burger sounds good. If I were making one I I'd probably dress mine with a nice ponzu instead of whatever sauce they said. I might also change up the vegetables. Maybe lose the cilantro, swap the cucumber for some pickled shredded daikon and add some thinly-sliced jalapeno.

And for those curious about beef tongue: it tastes like pot roast. And there's nothing wrong with the texture as long as it's cooked properly, which is true of everything.

When I was five, my dad gave me a cold tongue sandwich to eat while we were on a road trip. My sandwich ended up out the window. I'll never forget the weirdness of it. *hork*

Steamed tongue tacos from a street stand in Mexico City. I just ordered the first 10 (small tortillas like pastor) and told the guy "Keep 'em coming". Grilled shallots, half limes, cucumber slices and God's own red salsa... No wonder I used to know every single taco stand in every single borough back then.

\Was there last week for my birthday
\\Yes, corn, beef and pork prices in Mexico just went up - why do you ask? *omnomnom*
\\\Was lucky on the way back - the flight was 70% full and way below MTOW so my fat ass could be dragged into the air xD

The way Civet Cat pooped coffee is tastiest?

Actually, I sort of like chewy meat.  Schnitzel?  No problem.  Sinew in your Pho?  Great.  Skirt steak for your jitas?  Traditional because it was chewy which made it cheap.  Well trendiness wrecked that.

So actually hearing that tongue was tender was more of a disappointment.  Still.  Meat is meat.

Elephant poop coffee is the new Civet coffee. For whatever that's worth.

Hz so good: Elephant poop coffee is the new Civet coffee. For whatever that's worth.


Sounds dangerous.

I'm picturing elephants with coffee nerves wandering around the plantations.

/And don't piss them off before their first dose in the morning.  You wouldn't like it.

Can't be as bad as the elephants who raid India barracks to loot their whiskey, rum, and gin supplies. I think a few soldiers were killed trying to scare them away. Evidently, the elephants are so used to it, it's an annual occurance.
