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, 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!)

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 😁

Um. For some reason it's making me a bit uneasy. Not sure why.

100% quail. I’ve had it a few times.
As soon as I saw the photo I thought quail!

It has a face! I wouldn’t be eating that (especially if she doesn’t like you).

Just cut it, OP.

Ribs in the left half = rodent

Ribs in the right half = bird

I vote bird.

I'm voting quail or similar small bird with wings removed and legs cut shorter than normal.

Lick it. That's always my advice on "unidentified" MN items.

Let us know when you've licked it.

I used to breed quail, and that's what it looks like to me. If so, it'll be bloody delicious!

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.

Definitely bird.

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
