Roasted Rabbit Heads

I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a place in Seattle's ID to get roasted rabbit heads? If you know of any other fiddly bits not usually offered to Westerners,do tell!

  1. Fiddly bits, lol. No rabbit that I'm aware of, but King's BBQ house, 518 6th Ave S has chicken & duck feet, tripe and other fiddly again, I can't say it without chuckling!

      Haha! Well thank you, that's a good place to start, I'm guessing.

    2. What regional specialty are roasted rabbit heads? Vietnamese? Laotian? Chinese? If Chinese, what region? Knowing this would would make it easier for you to sniff out a spot that might serve something so delicous sounding. =) The ID has clusters of Asian communities, like Little Saigon.

        I've never had one, but they're Szechuan... a specialty in the capitol (Chengdu).

            I remember reading about them in on of Fuschia Dunlop's books on Sichuan cooking/China.
            You know, you might consider going someplace like Szechuan 99 up north or Bamboo Garden in Bellevue or Seven Stars in the ID and asking if they can make the dish for you. I can imagine that there is not much call for that but that it is something you could ask a chef to do for you. I would try the Bamboo Garden in Bellevue since they have an AWESOME rabbit on the menu already.

            I would imagine that you can get the exact Chinese name from Dunlops book on Sichuan cooking. good luck and DO post back of your progress..........

              I just had an image of me with a slaughtered rabbit in a bag over my shoulder, walking into a Chinese place and asked them to cook the whole thing and roast me the head. I wonder what the reaction will be! I will post any progress, for sure. Now, where to get a fresh rabbit...
