Trying to Eat Brains

We’re trying to sample different preparations of different animal brains—cow, lamb, pig, miscellaneous—and we're happy to go anywhere in the five boroughs. Does anyone have tips on restaurants that serve brains? Any favorites out there?

  1. I know that Haandi has curried lamb brain as a special. It is one of my favorite Pakistani dishes, though I haven't had the opportunity to sample it there yet.

          They are not bad, but I found the brain flavor elusive.

        2. Chez Zombie has an incredible prix fixe

          1. You should post this on the Outer Boroughs board if you're interested in Queens, Brooklyn, etc. But the first place that comes to mind is Kabab Cafe in Astoria.

            1. I think SipSak, a Turkish place on 2nd Ave, serves brains.
