my lunch today

i went to a restaurant for lunch with some colleagues. in the menu, there was the normal food and also some strange. so as i am in a different country, i thought it is a nice opportunity to try something weird that can't be found everywhere.
i wanted to try crocodile but there wasn't so i choose the porcupine (look at the photo). i had to search for the word in english. in french porc-épic.
all i can say is that it has a different taste, probably cos of the sauce they put, speciality of the restaurant.
in the menu, there was aslo antelope, python and sanglier or in english wild boar (Obelix's favourite meal) and of course there was chicken, fish... etc
i don't think that i'll try it again but i don't regret trying it, one should have the courage to try new things (if i had the chance to jump in parachute, or bunji, i don't think i would do it though :) )


  1. Hi Marianne,

    What a lunch! How could you eat a porky pine? They are so cute and innocent :) Have a nice trip back to Egypt and a merry Christmas to you and your family.


  2. Hi Phil,

    merry xmas to u 2 and to ur family
