I've had a moose burger before and it was amazing. It did have a bit of beef in it to hold it together because moose is lean. Or so I was told.

Black bear and antelope are probably the most "exotic" meats I've eaten

turtle, snake, caribou, moose, elk, venison

Elk, alligator, moose, bison.... Fuck. That's about it I think. I've had some other random stuff like mahi mahi, tons of venison, quail, dove, etc. But those aren't really exotic. Might be time for me to go to the farmer's market and buy some random, exotic stuff.
>>
>>7124969
I tried rattlesnake at an archaeology convention once. The guy actually went out, caught it, butchered it, and cooked it in clay pots right there. Honestly, not bad. Sounds cliche but tasted just like chicken, only extremely lean, and somewhat chewy. Would eat again.
>>
>>7124969

I had crocodile once. Reptile meat is weird, it's got the texture of fish but the taste/smell of poultry.

Horse, raindeer and moose.

Shark, moose, and wild pheasant. I need to eat more animals.

I've hunted and eaten the most dangerous game: squirrel
>>
>>7124969
Snake, iguana, crocodile, turtle, moose, elk, bison, boar, etc shit you can easily hunt. I wouldn't call them exotic, just unconventional, especially to the average american.

I will say that emu is probably my favorite exotic meat that I can buy with relative ease. I had pufferfish in Japan and was not impressed, especially for the price and relatively dangerous implications associated with it. Horse is really fucking good, but virtually impossible to get in the US and I don't give a fuck if people object; they are not some majestic creature.

Sure they are. Doesn't mean you shouldn't eat them. I would eat a unicorn if I found one.

this is the concept for a restaurant I'm putting together
calling it Matterhorn, and will be serving what I am calling "pioneer cuisine", styled like an old adventure club hunting lodge serving exclusively game and exotic animals unique to certain regions with wild vegetables and things like that. Not historically accurate to any region, but something people who live off the land could believably put together and upscaled to make it a little cheffy.

my big issue is actually getting wild game suppliers. There are a lot of shit laws stopping restaurants from buying directly from hunters which sorta kills my vision a bit. Like someone can't shoot a bear by chance while out hunting, call me up to see if I want some, and then I put bear on the menu as a special. Can't sell it commercially if it wasn't harvested commercially.

however for the integrity of the concept, I am probably going to break this law fairly frequently

>Moreton Bay Bugs
I have never in my life heard of this. Google just says it's kind of like a lobster. Care to describe it?

>>7125256
Where I live I could find those things, but I'd have to go to a specialty grocery store and It would be an hour and half event. I wouldn't call them exotic, but generally inaccessible.

>>7125277
The problem with using hunted game is that A. you can really only serve things that are in season unless you want to pay a huge fine and or go to jail and B. a lot of hunted game is generally not desirable. I like your approach, but it sounds impractical.
>>
>>7125310
I'm not going to go 100% hunted because its easy enough to find commercial elk, bison, gator, kangaroo, even lion. and then of course hunted things during hunting season.
bears specifically are only even palatable in the spring time because of how much fat they have, and it picks up what the eat obviously.
spring, lots of vegetation and berries
by fall
rotting fish and garbage scavenged out of town

Have had some wild boar and ostrich, both were OK. I wouldn't buy the boar again cause it was fairly expensive and I'm not sure what a great way to cook it is.

I've wanted to try rattlesnake but it's expensive as fucking hell for what it is.

I live in rural Montana where there are a lot of buffalo farms. Since the population isn't so endangered anymore it's easy to get bison meat pretty much anywhere. Buffalo burgers be tastier than beef and are leaner and more nutritious
>>

>most people are scared of what they cant buy in a supermarket
I don't know if that's most people. But some folks are so fucking squeamish about meat I don't know why they eat it in the first place. I know people who won't eat any meat on the bone because they can't bear to be reminded that it comes from an animal. But they still eat meat everyday. Go figure.

I've had all the standard 'exotic' fare like buffalo, elk, alligator, etc, but I'd say the most truly exotic animal I've eaten is rat.

I had it on vacation in south east Asia and ate it at a homestead in Vietnam. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked it. It was skinned, gutted, flayed, and cooked bone in. It looked and tasted very similar to quail. If it were socially acceptable to eat eat in America I would definitely do it again.

possum, was fucking disgusting
ostrich is rare here and it was nice
silkworm pupae, gross

believe me or not I don't care and I'm too paranoid to explain how but I have eaten human meat before, a bit of the cooked meat around half a pack of cards thick and the same size, taken from the thigh of a female

the taste is nothing to go nuts about but there is something so weird about it the taste is far from your mind. like "this is actually part of a human lady, who once lived with goals and dreams and experience of her own, relationships likes dislikes, and now I am consuming her into my stomach"

probably will not repeat, I risked a lot but I don't regret it. no I didn't kill her.

That one in my hand was killed in my yard which used to be a pecan orchard. There are also sugarcane fields next to my house so they fatten up on pecans and sugar. I guess they might taste shittier in urban areas where they eat garbage

>>7128055
I never got the fear of organ meats.
Whats so bad about them
>>
>>7129839
Organ meats go bad faster and require some technique.

If you fuck up a cheap, slightly not too fresh boneless chicken breast from an old bird the worst thing is it doesn't taste like anything and it'd kinda dry.

If you fuck up a cheap, slightly not too fresh beef liver from an old cow, it's pretty fucking miserable to eat. Smell, texture, and taste are all punishment for the soul.

There is a reason people go for calves this and baby that, when it comes to organ meat. And sperg about preparation.

once upon a time I bought chicken livers at the grocery store, but to my surprise when I opened it up I had chicken hearts which had been mislabeled.

oh well, not a big deal, never used hearts before but I figure I'll just throw them in a pan with some bacon and onion and call it a day.

hearts are done, pop one in my mouth and as I bit down hot oil which had accumulated in the cavity came squirting out the artery, all over the inside of my mouth and thoroughly fucked my shit up

Me and my friends have a competition called Noah's Ark. Every Christmas whoever can prove they've eaten the largest variety of animals in the previous year wins a case of beer.

Besides common meat or fish like beef, pork, chicken, goat, salmon, tilapia, mutton, or turkey.

I've eaten:
Alpaca, Llama, Bison, Buffalo, Alligator, Turtle, Frog, Snake, Caribou, Elk, Moose, Venison, Horse, Goose, Duck, Boar, Rabbit, Hare, Squab, Swan, Squirrel, Black Bear, Ground Hog, Opossum, Mantis Shrimp, Shark(Iceland), Skate(Jamaica), Whale(japan), Sturgeon, Swordfish, Blue fin Tuna(Japan), Kangaroo, Ostrich, Eel, Pike, Crappy, Snails, and probably more that I'm forgetting right now.

The game has spiraled out of control. Like my buddies will spend several grand on hunting trips just to one up each other.

>people have forgotten the "wild" part and only focus on "exotic"

I have to travel to a lot of remote places for work. I learned pretty early on that to avoid offense you eat and drink whatever the people you're meeting with offer you.

Deer, elk, pheasant, bear, rattlesnake, turtle, iguana, alligator, kangaroo, buffalo (who are we kidding that's not even exotic).

What's bullshit is that they still find it in themselves to charge so much for it. There's a place where they harvest bison meat about thirty miles from where I live and they still have the audacity to charge around $35 for a sirloin with sides at a nearby restaurant. It was cheaper when I had it in Alaska, for fucks sake. No wonder that place is going under.

there's a store in dahlonega, GA that sells all kinds of jerky and trail mix because it's at the start at the appalachian trail. they have the normal stuff: beef, elk, turkey, etc.

the oddest things they have are ostrich, snake, and fish (I believe salmon, but I can't remember) jerkey. i know this isn't exotic everywhere in the world, but i would say those are fairly exotic as far as american jerky goes.
