but only for dimsum and in restaurants. I wouldn't eat those in the plastic tubs you find for sale in the oriental supermarkets; they always look like they've been there forever! Chicken feet, for anyone who has ever killed their own chicken, is covered with a yellow layer of ?? - we call them socks. You dunk the feet into boiling water, then strip off this layer, so they are quite clean.

Then again, I don't eat tripe ....

All you people who think its gross ( I don't eat them but I did when I was a kid, i don't like the red sauce ) What do you think chicken "hot dogs" are made out of? They aren't going to grind up some premium chicken breast for you. They probrably use chicken ass, chicken feet, chicken neck, and anything else you wouldn't dream of eating.

Personally, I find it quite delicious; I order any of the various types it's cooked when I go out for dim sum.

It's a matter of preference on whether you like it or not, but we always have to keep an open mind about other cultures. Sayign that it's disgusting and that you should not be associated with people who eat such things are quite naive and asinine. There are other dishes that prove to be delicacies in some cultures but are then again viewed as disgusting by others. In North America for instance, McDonald's and other fast food chains are looked as a staple or a treat while in other cultures it is just viewed as disgusting. My point is just to keep an open mind and try things before you make irrational comments.

Not all Chinese people eat puppies, hell they don't even eat puppies. In northern parts of China where protein is scarce, Chinese people eat special breeds of dog to get their protein; also it's often the lower classes who cannot afford pork or beef that eat dog meat.

oxtail is actually cow tail. most "oxtail" you find in a Caribbean restaurant or Asian eatery is actually cow tail.

I don't know why people in general call it oxtail. its really cowtail. honestly.

oxtail is good though, i mean cowtail?

I had done my best over the years to forget the gory details....just when I get out...they pull me back in. :cheesygri

Chicken ass=popes nose....sounds better.
Chicken necks are quite good....just a bit tedius to eat... tender...good flavour.

The probably use a lot of dark meat.
Think about it...most of the chicken is useable....and good. They dont use anywhere near what beef dogs might have....or bologna.
Dont know if they would use the liver...different flavour.

It's all psychological. You may think it's gross, but what about sausages, huh?

Sausages are made from miscellaneous meat that is wrapped inside intestine. Last time I checked, bodily waste flowed through the intestine... :razz:

Um, so yeah, shouldn't sausages be "ewww" too...?
