What heads do you eat?

Non-veggie edition.

Pig, cow, fish, shrimp and soft-shell crabs come immediately to mind.

Any others?

      Well, they certainly are *not* veggies ...

    2. Pig, certain variation of shrimp, soft shell crabs. Do brains count? if so I have moreā€¦.

        I think we'll leave brains out for now, cuz we let brains count and then we have to include things like cheek, eyeballs, nose, etc.

      2. Had a squab head a few weeks ago at Next Restaurant's "The Hunt". Come to think of it, at their Kyoto menu, I ate a shrimp head. I passed on the whole, fried aji skeleton, and just tasted a bite of the backbone. I think their staff is just toying with me now.
