Is it just me or do some orientals seem to enjoy making things suffer before eating them? I've seen the videos of the half-cooked/half-alive fish and saw snakes being tortured in markets in Taiwan. What gives?

Anyway, next stop Mongolia. That should have some interesting food...

Most of them don't touch that kind of food - it's mostly for drunk young men out on the piss looking for something macho to eat in front of friends. They like very fresh food and avoid packaged crap so it's made to suffer in front of them rather than hidden away in slaughterhouses where you have no idea how they actually kill the meat that gets to your table like we have. There's no difference really except they are more comfortable with where their meat comes from than we are.

All this aside the octopus in this video is already dead or close to death. The extra salt in the soy source being poured over it is firing cells in the tentacles to make it move...not something I'd try myself but I really don't care.

Mongolian food is mostly cheeses, mutton and horse meat. The fermented horse milk is particularly good but it does make you dizzy even in small amounts.

My old boss was in China and came across a box of kittens outside a restaurant, she was told you could choose which ones you wanted to eat- she was horrified so decided to buy a couple to free and risk their little lives on the street, she selected two and as they picked them out the box they rung their little necks right in front of her

The SAS survival manual states cat meat taste like sour poo. Must be a rare or very hungry palette that would enjoy that.

Saw loads of those in the markets of Guangzhou.
And some other "exotic" specimens sold to satisfy a discerning palate.

The Cantonese have a China-wide reputation for eating all sorts of crap that would make a billy goat puke.

Tried spicy boiled duck feet. No meat...seemed pointless.
