Udder(s)

Notorious P.I.G. Apr 28, 2013 10:15 PM

Is there any restaurant in Toronto serving Udders? Cow, Goat, sheep, etc? Yakitori? Braised? Fermented in their own milk? Blown up like a giant salsa bowl with the nipples used as salsa bowl legs? Twisted into a balloon animal? The plating options are endless I feel.

      Only had them twice as yakitori in Tokyo and grilled in the wilds of Argentina. Have never seen them in north America but they must be used somehow.

        Hey deluca! Yeah, I've seen them at a couple yakitori spots in Japan but never here.

        Maybe we'll share a plate in Tokyo at some point!

        I asume they are part of the "mystery meat" ingredients....

        I have had cow's udders barbecued and curried in India....as well as in Tacos in LA....

        Unfortunately never seen them in the GTA

          I'm sure it's served with a side of sauteed cow fur, somewhere in the city...

            I have not seen them in the GTA, but they were a filling choice for tacos and other tortilla-based items in Mexico on my most recent trip (Chiapas, Oaxaca and Veracruz states). I never tried them, but my husband tried to order them as a memela filling (another masa-based corn item, not dissimilar to thick, handmade tortillas). Unfortunately, they were out of udder. I did ask how they're cooked. I was told that they boil/braise for a long time, then dice it finely. I understand the flavour is bland, but the texture is a bit chewy, say toothsome. We definitely saw udder again as a potential taco filling at more than one stand.

                Perhaps the Argentinian place that does asados?
