I’ve eaten some weird things here and abroad. I’ve downed raw shrimp in Mexico 🇲🇽…twice (one time didn’t end up so hot). I’ve had tequila shots with mayonnaise in it. I’ve eaten beef tongue tacos. One time, I even ate sushi from a college campus dining hall 😉
Nothing has compared in exquisiteness and delectability to donkey meat. Only slightly gamey, the meat is tender and delicious. I enjoyed it over some Italian bigoli (wide noodles).
First of all, you virtually can’t go wrong with any dish at a decent restaurant in Italy 🇭🇺. The ingredients are incredibly fresh wherever you go, and the chefs inherit a sense of pride that spans across countless generations. You may experience more conventional dishes like the one pictured here:
As for the donkey meat, there are a couple of reasons you should try it.
- It’s delicious
- It’s better than the horse meat in Ikea meatballs
I do suggest that you work to find meat suppliers that support humane practices toward livestock. I actually eat meat very rarely, and try to limit my consumption in respect toward the animals. You are free to do as you wish, but it’s good to be mindful in every domain of life.
The bigoli al ragù d’asino dish pictured above was enjoyed with a carafe of wine at Osteria al Duomo in Verona, Italy. The restaurant is named so because of its close vicinity to il Duomo di Verona (Verona Cathedral). The cathedral is a must-see site in Verona. Here’s why:
The cathedral has been in existence since 1187 and features stunning work later added by artist Sanmicheli. In the present day, the cathedral is surrounded by incomprehensible quantities of delicious food.
