Q: Have any of you eaten donkey?

I'm watching Andrew Zimmern, a bizarre food eater/travel show host, and he's in Beijing for this episode. There is a restaurant that specializes in donkey... it's kind of.. interesting if you can get over the fact that it's donkey.

Yeah I've eaten it in Shanghai. It wasn't too impressive, about the same as horse. I did enjoy it more the camel though.

I ate it once in Beijing. I can't deny that it tasted good but I wouldn't eat it again just because I feel sorry for the poor donkeys. They have such a miserable life and did you know they can suffer from depression and even commit suicide? Read this article about donkeys killing themselves in Sudan. I'm sure they're not much happier in China.

HugAPanda:

What an interesting article, Lolitta... thanks. I don't know that I could eat it, for the same reason I couldn't eat dog, cat or horse. And yet, I have no problem with beef, lamb, chicken, fish, goat, ostrich(YUM!), alligator, frog, etc... I can't explain why I can knowingly eat some species and not others. I'm a pretty adventurous foodie.. we'll see.

I've also had it. It wasn't bad, but it's nothing I get cravings for or would go searching around for.
