Bizarre foods in Dallas?

After watching several episodes of Bizarre Foods, I'm tempted to try some unusual dishes in Dallas. Anyone have any recommendations?

I know Uncle Julio's has frog legs. Ali Baba's serves raw kibbi. And some pho joints have beef with blood.

  1. Frog legs aren't bizarre, tasty yes, bizarre no; but then again I grew up eating things like frog legs, pickled pig feet, pig ears, pig tails.

    1. I posted a question almost exactly like this in October. Here are the responses that I got:


      1. Saigon Block (in Richardon) has excellent fried frog legs.

        1. frog legs? You can get those everywhere, including chains like Papadeaux's and more.

          Go Ethopian, ask the waitstaff for authentic raw recommendations.
          Go Mexican, any mexican (not gringo-tex like UJ you listed) and get a bowl of Menudo.

          1. Try calf fries in Fort Worth at Reata or Riscky's.

            Reata Restaurant
            310 Houston Street, Fort Worth, TX 76102

            Riscky's Steakhouse
