Attention, cat lovers and fans of all things furry: You might want to stop reading if you fear your heart may quail at the injustices served on the King of the Jungle. You’ve read the headline, so now you know — there is a restaurant in Florida that had been selling lion meat tacos. Yes, that kind of lion. But not anymore, as the eatery apparently faced a bit of an uproar (haha get it?) after offering the tacos in question.
Boca, an Arizona restaurant that has served tacos featuring the meat of alligators, elk, kangaroos and rattlesnakes, has upped the ante with its latest Exotic Taco Wednesday offering: Next month, the restaurant will offer lion tacos. We’re prepared to taste-test the king of the jungle and report back here, if you want us to. Vote inside.
By now, you’ve probably heard about the small Mesa, Arizona, restaurant that caused an up-roar this week by making a limited-time addition to its menu — Lion Burgers. If you hadn’t heard about it, well now you have. But putting any judgment aside for the moment, one has to ask — Where in the world do you get lion meat from?
