So what would a trip to the south be without eating something really weird? Ok so how ’bout the bottom half of an amphibian?
As my last meal before leaving Kentucky I decided to give frog legs a try. RJ’s cafe in Kevil, KY serves up real country cooking with a personal touch. The frog leg dinner was $9.99 and it included four sets of legs, fries, coleslaw, and hushpuppies. It was a lot of food but I managed to make my way through it.
So…. “What’s it like?” Delicious, the meat is very similar to alligator tail and could be described as a cross between chicken and pork for texture. The appearance is different because it looks like the frog was chopped in half and then fried but if you can get past the mooning frogs you are in for a treat.
If you have the chance to order frog legs at a restaurant, I would recommend it but in the mean time if you are adventurous at home you can order them on the most wonderful Al Gore invention, the world wide web. While you are online check out other adventures on my blog at http://www.cookingwithtrace.blogspot.com and leave me a message about the most adventurous meal you have ever eaten!
