Moroccan Butchers

October 21, 2012

I just got back from the Moroccan butcher, who took the time to explain to me, in some detail, the preparation and eventual flavour of grilled bull testicles.

“Like a flan made out of meat!” he said.

Vallecas is hardcore like that.

And he nearly had me convinced for a moment.

But no. I’m not ready.

That’d be a pretty awkward dinnertime conversation to have with my flatmates.


Mr Chorizo.

P.S. It’s been a while here. Now, have some fun information about horse meat and why you should eat it.

P.P.S. Updated, 2016. Tried lamb testicle. It was okay. Not even that weird.

How did I end up in Spain? Why am I still here almost 20 years later? Excellent questions. With no good answer... Anyway, at some point I became a blogger, bestselling author and contributor to Lonely Planet. So there's that. Drop me a line, I'm happy to hear from you.
