On our trip to the market we stopped to
eat at what can only be described as a tourist trap restaurant....
but i was a tourist and therefore prime to be trapped,
i readily gave in when i saw pigeon on the menu, it tickled my taste buds.
and then it turned up and it looked like this.
and i asked Captain Tim where do you think they got the pigeon from,
which to he replied, 'well i dont see any on the streets'
which left my taste buds feeling slightly untickilish.
But then we managed to Pop it open (yes pop being the operative word)
and i discovered that inside was pigeon haggis.
just like us Scots cook sheep ofal and oats in a sheeps stomach and love to eat it, it seems the Egyptians seem to like to do the same with pigeon.
It was delicious, but i did leave Captain Tim to eat the liver/kidneys
and whatever other organs that were cooked inside, i'm not that hardcore.
and yes i've also tried camel,
it was good a bit like venison.
