Python, the weirdest food I tasted!

Yesterday I posted about our balut delicacy (boiled duck's embryo). But that was nothing compared to a dish I came across during our Christmas Party. My friends tricked me into tasting python stew. Yup, real python/snakes meat. They said that was chicken and I believed them. And I only realized I'm eating something else when I noticed how the meat looked so different. I mean no chicken has elongated body and endless rib cages! Nevertheless the thing do taste like chicken. It's a bit tough and that's it. My friends thought I will vomit but I managed to finish a whole plate. Python meat is best served with beer. And another thing. Try not to eat wild snakes. Their meat is laced with parasites.

YIkes! I don't think I have the stomach for exotic foods. I'll stay with beef and chicken, thank you! However, there is this one occasion when we went to Quezon province and they gave us lambanog with a snake inside the gallon jar. Took a sip and it tasted like your average, strong kicking liquor.
