Would You Eat This?

Posted by len on June 7th, 2008


These are snails. SNAILS!
Yes, summertime in Lisbon means beer and snails.
They’re washed, boiled (I think), and put in a tasty sauce.
You grab their little heads with your teeth like you’re eating corn-on-the-cob and then suck the bodies out.

The flavor: very cajun, if I had to compare them to something Americans eat.
Quite yummy, actually, after getting over the fact that they’re SUPER GROSS!

That’s me, over there on the right, dipping some bread into the “snail sauce” left behind.
Yes, I know, the idea grossed me out before..but you can’t argue with FLAVOR!!

Oh, and see our plates? That’s how many we had eaten at the time of the picture.

    At least you’re not eating squid. That would be disturbing.

    Looks like I’ve been out of the loop a while! Whole lots of interesting adventures. As it should be and wonderfully is.

    Nothing soothes a broken toe like hoovering a big pile of snails.

    That looks exactly like snails I ate in Taiwan… purchased by the bagfull from an old lady on the beach. Not bad once you get over sucking them out of their shells, though I probably would have felt more comfortable if they had come from a restaurant or some other established food preparing place.
    How are things in Lisboa? I guess it’s been a little over a year ago that I’ve been there…

    Hi Guys,

    Great photo of you both. I have eaten snails but at a fancy restaurant covered with garlic so all I remember is a garlic taste.

    Your bowls of snails look very labor intensive.
