Special for Today - RAT meat .....yum...

For years I had a running joke with my friends. I could live on Chinese food and when people would jokingly say "Chinese food is made from Cat" I would laugh and say "have any pets....". Today, I think I may just have to reconsider how often I eat at my favorite Chinese restaurant. because they maybe serving up RAT????

Feb. 5 - A 58-year-old Taiwan eatery offers rat meat as winter tonics to welcome the Year of Rat.

Rat meat, also eaten in China, became popular in rural Taiwan in the 1940s and 1950s among people who could not afford chicken or pork. Ho-la, a rural eatery at Taiwan's Chiayi county, serves 10 rat-themed dishes, including rat soup, black pepper-dipped and deep-fried rat. The diner goes through around 18 kg (40 lb) of rat meat per day.
