The Asians would eat anything. Go to any restaurent in China town and see the things on the menu. wow!

I use to eat it but not anymore. That stuff is full of disease.

I mean really what is there to eat on them? I dont like scales and dont like bones. Is the meat really that good? where is it? I have always wondered what the story with them is. :|

That actually translates to Phoenix Claw in English.

Yuck, I've seen them for sale at Soon Lee (chinese supermarket), disgusting. Not as disgusting as some Sri Lankan restaurants I've been to which serve intestine of mutton.
TRANCE/HOUSE Fan?

i'm sorry but if you eat chicken feet then you are able to eat just about anything.

Question for the feet eaters, have you ever been in a chicken coop?


edit: my reason for not eating it is because it's effin disgusting.

It's all subjective I guess. I eat chicken feet, but I don't like eating any type of roe (cod, salmon, flying fish, etc.). I used to...but then the thought of having a thousand eggs in one bite, when they could've all been little fishes...that got to me.

Many cultures have things that other cultures may find disgusting...foie gras, sweetbreads, oysters, or even escargots can be seen as disgusting for other cultures.

Visualization and texture are the 2 major reasons why people dislike a certain kind of food. I started eating chicken feet before I even knew what it was when I was kid. :D It's smooth sailing aftewards.

There isn't much that I don't eat due to my imagination/visualization. But texture and smells sometimes get me
