China’s first penis restaurant

You can’t fault them for lack of innovation.

The menu at Beijing’s latest venue for its growing army of gourmets is eye-watering rather than mouth-watering.

China’s cuisine is renowned for being “in your face” – from the skinned dogs displayed at food markets to the kebabbed scorpions sold on street stalls – and there is no polite way of describing Guo-li-zhuang.

Situated in an elegantly restored house beside Beijing’s West Lake, it is China’s first speciality penis restaurant.

Here, businessmen and government officials can sample the organs of yaks, donkeys, oxen and even seals. In fact, they have to, since they form part of every dish – except for those containing testicles.

“This is my third visit,” said one customer, Liu Qiang. “Of course, there are other restaurants that serve the bian of individual animals. But this is the first that brings them all together.”

Not much else I can say. Dig in.

Update: Unrelated except for the fact that it belongs in the “News of the Weird” category: The dangers of playing mah jong in Malaysia.

A 56-year-old man spent six days in hospital after his friend shoved a spoon up his nose in an argument over a mahjong game.

He was also hit with a chair during the incident in a coffee shop in Lorong Baru off Jalan Macalister here last Thursday.

Northeast district police chief Assistant Commissioner Hamzah Md Jamil said the victim lodged a report after being discharged from the hospital yesterday.

The man said he was playing mahjong with two friends when an argument started.

The argument turned violent when one of the men grabbed a spoon and shoved it up his nose.

Serving animals privates is nothing new, I’d swear that the noodle stand that sets up across the road from my office has been doing it for years.

Going by taste, he also does a nice range in balls and *rseholes.

The article makes clear serving it isn’t new. But a restaurant dedicated solely to sex organs is apparently a first.

If I see my ex-girlfriend working in the kitchen there, I’ll run faster than a road-runner.

Just don’t want to know if they would have connections to any penal colonies.

So I guess when they built the restaurant, it was a penile erection?

And do the waitresses say, “please come again?”
