Exotic meats
For lunch, how about some ostrich, turtle, alligator, or kangaroo meat? Is it all that weird? I don’t know. Perhaps…it really depends on which region you are from.

Luigi Ortega (Pasadena, Ca) serves some pretty weird dishes. A look at the menu may leave you pondering “which item do I want?” The turtle or the kangaroo? It’s pretty hard to decide.
If you aren’t adventurous, they have some traditional items like chicken. However, that’s not what I’m here for.
Exotic meats
I wanted to try all of the meats so I ordered the sampler.
From left to right: Ostrich -> Turtle -> Alligator -> Kangaroo
A closer look at the alligator.
And the turtle.

Since describing taste isn’t easy, I won’t even bother. (Don’t believe me? Try explaining how chicken tastes like to a vegetarian that has never eaten it before.)
I will however tell you that the kangaroo tastes a lot like hamburger meat.
Anyways, I’d say try it yourself!

So, do you think these meats are exotic? If so, would you give it a try?

    These are definitely exotic…and I think I've hear so much about Kangaroo, that I no longer have to wait to go to Australia to try it…..if I find it sooner, I will. But may be a bit squirmish about the turtle!!!!!!!

    The turtle wasn't that exotic to me. But kangaroo is probably more rare.
