To ask what in the holy hell have I just been served?
HashtagTeamRaven · 17/11/2018 17:37
It looks like rat. Please tell me it isn't rat?
I've eaten many a strange thing in my day (I have a weird job that often requires me to) but feel like rat would be a new low.
For context, I'm in Russia and was served it by a non English speaking Housekeeper who I suspect doesn't like me much.
it's rat isn't it?

If she brings out the next course on a large platter, it will be badger.
everythingthelighttouches · 17/11/2018 18:29
First badger, now ratty. It'll be mole and toad next!

hahahahaha! best typo ever.(dick/duck)was feeling really hard done by for a moment.
PyongyangKipperbang · 17/11/2018 18:30
My first thought was quail too, and its delicious!
ButchyRestingFace · 17/11/2018 18:31
@everythingthelighttouches, I have just elsewhere been reliably informed that the badger was steamed, not grilled, as I previously thought.
Btw, I love your username.

I've eaten rat (barbecued) and it looked nothing like that (and tasted good!)
Lovemusic33 · 17/11/2018 18:32
Pretty sure they don’t ear rodents in Russia, they eat a lot of game and fish, I’m guessing it’s quail, looks like you can see the pattern (little dots) where the feathers were, just like on a duck.
I would eat it 😁
skybluee · 17/11/2018 18:32
Um. For some reason it's making me a bit uneasy. Not sure why.
notsobumpy · 17/11/2018 18:33
100% quail. I’ve had it a few times.
As soon as I saw the photo I thought quail!
KateGrey · 17/11/2018 18:33
It has a face! I wouldn’t be eating that (especially if she doesn’t like you).

Skip to Owl Ice Cream dessert.
MissWilmottsGhost · 17/11/2018 18:38
Just cut it, OP.
Ribs in the left half = rodent
Ribs in the right half = bird
I vote bird.
MissWilmottsGhost · 17/11/2018 18:39
Where the fuck is a 'face'
70isaLimitNotaTarget · 17/11/2018 18:40
Not guinea-pig, they do them spatch cocked.
Google "Russian Herring" that'll be your next course >
WeeDangerousSpike · 17/11/2018 18:40
I'm voting quail or similar small bird with wings removed and legs cut shorter than normal.
DishingOutDone · 17/11/2018 18:41
Lick it. That's always my advice on "unidentified" MN items.
Let us know when you've licked it.
MissWilmottsGhost · 17/11/2018 18:43
Does it taste nice? That's all that matters
YoloThankfully · 17/11/2018 18:46
The face I see
DontDribbleOnTheCarpet · 17/11/2018 18:47
I used to breed quail, and that's what it looks like to me. If so, it'll be bloody delicious!
YoloThankfully · 17/11/2018 18:47
It just looks like my pet rats face. I won't be cooking them to find out though I'm afraid
bofsy1 · 17/11/2018 18:48
What did you order from menu?
pinkmagic1 · 17/11/2018 18:48
It's 100 percent a small bird, most likely quail. Sometimes the wings are removed as they are so tiny and a total faff to pluck. They long tail like thing is its neck.
Eat it, it will be tasty.
Trethew · 17/11/2018 18:48
The curved bit at the top is the neck, and the two stumps at the bottom are thighs.
As a person who keeps pet rats I can promise you THIS IS NOT A RAT.
They are a completely different shape and there is virtually no flesh on them
