That “Special” Tang

Filed under: News — lmwalker @ 12:36 pm

I suggest you sniff twice at your next Chinese take-out:

A restaurant in northeastern China that advertised illegal tiger meat dishes was found instead to be selling donkey flesh marinated in tiger urine, a newspaper reported Thursday . . .

The sale of tiger parts is illegal in China and officers shut down the restaurant, only to be told by owner, Ma Shikun, that the meat was actually that of donkeys, flavored with tiger urine to give the dish a “special” tang, the newspaper said.

I hope everyone was done eating lunch by the time they read this.



  1. Great, I was just about to go get lunch…I think I’ve lost my appetite.

    Of course, in cases of life-threatening thirst, drink urine (is it in you?!)

  4. The article fails to answer the most crucial question: how did they get the tiger to pee in that little cup???
