Got tongue?

by Gavan on September 1, 2010

I was back in Austin recently visiting d’in-laws where I always love to get my Texas grub fix. I’ve eaten some interesting things like antelope carpaccio and buffalo but my latest culinary adventure…braised tongue in a bun. We went for a beer after dinner across from the restaurant where I spotted what was not so much a food truck but a food trailer. Now, I’m always one to grab a bite even after having just grabbed a bite so I headed over to take a gander and see what they were cookin’ up. They had all sorts of quick bites and to be honest I can’t quite remember what else they had because my eyes went straight for the tongue…literally. Now, tongue is part of the offal family which includes all the innerds of animals which most people don’t generally eat. Cooking offal is becoming more mainstream these days and if you haven’t ever had any you should really give it a go. I would love to tell you about my culinary experience but

to be honest I can’t remember except it was tender, meaty and damn tasty.
Anyway there isn’t much else to say. Try it!

Definitely. It takes a few tastes for some. The way I had it was great.
