So, I just found out that a restaurant that serves middle age food is going to open up close to where I live.

On their middle age menu they got things like pig tongue, horse leg among other things.

And thus my question is, if you got the chance to eat middle age food. Would you do it?


I personally can't see myself eating food like that.

Yea, I'd eat it I kinda sorta all ready eat organ meats already so it's not that weird also as westeners we find foods like that weird when it's like everyday food for people around the world and they've been doing that for thousands of years if anything were just picky.

I'd try it if I was invited with a group. I'm not opposed to it, but the concept of "middle ages food" I just don't feel is incredibly definitive (middle ages where? It's assumed europe though), and quite frankly, I really enjoy produce from the new world (peppers, potatoes, tomatoes, corn, squashes, here's a list of things that are very obviously going to be missing from your platter: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_World_crops ) And in exchange, I get to eat heavily spiced organ meat?

I'll pass... XP

I thought you meant food was halfway to its expiration date.

Or was going through a midlife crisis.

No, I couldn't picture myself eating things like that. Most of my family eats it though.

I don't think anyone would turn down something they got invited to. Anyhow, pig tongue and horse legs was just some of the more "mild" stuff they had om the menu.

Some other things that was offered was cow liver, egg slammed sieve, wild dogs and onion hot dog.

Yes, as long as they made sure to improve upon the safety (naturally), and that the horses don't have a history of steroids. You know, simple things like that. Besides, many countries already feature throwbacks from the Middle Ages. Alot of it will likely just be local UK food, like haggis and mince pie.

Mind giving me a link to personally check out the menu, please?

Well I already eat liver, I make paté. I don't think I'd have tripe. I have had steak and kidney pie. I've even dared to try tongue, they had it cured like ham and sliced at the supermarket deli counter. Mother once made cow heel soup. It looked like the cow glue we used to use in art class. I declined to try it. I have had black pudding, sliced and fried with chillies, tomatoes and onions, not bad.

Middle Ages is simply another term for the Medieval Period that is only in reference to a specific time period of about 1,000 years in European history. 5th to 15th century. It specifically sits between Antiquity and Modern time.

The equivalent in Japan is known as the Feudal Period which lasted about 700 years.

When the term Medieval is used to define a time period in another part of the world, it's just applying a western time period to the local history for comparison purposes for what was happening around the world in that specific time of Medieval Europe.

Like a mutton? I'd try mutton/ a mutton. However you say it.
