The ox tongue

Because this guy deserves a post all of its own.

Yep, this is an ox tongue. Appetising huh? Well, turns out if you boil it, then wrap it up into a tight coil and brine it, the tongue is transformed. Well, not in looks so much I have to say, but is surprisingly delicious served in thin slices with relish, cheese and some delicious home-made bread.

Trust me. I tried it. I resisted, but I did. If you shut your eyes, tell yourself you’ve paid for these types of experiences, well turns out it actually tastes pretty good.

Anyone want me to make it for them when I get home?!

    my favourite meal of all time was Raw Cows tongue (Osaka, Japan – “cooked” by soaking in citrus juices but nothing else). Would love to have it again!

      Yum that sounds delicious. Yes, I’ll take tongue over offal any day of the week. Let’s find some in LOndon!
