Would You Eat It: African Lion Tacos

Yep. You read that right. The resturaunt is a place called Boca in Tuscon AZ. Here’s a clip of the article:

“In the six months since it launched Exotic Taco Wednesdays, Boca Tacos y Tequila has served up python, alligator, elk, kangaroo and rattlesnake.Frog legs, turtle, duck and Rocky Mountain oysters have also made appearances.“We’ve done just about anything we can get our hands on,” said owner Bryan Mazon. “Every Wednesday we do something a little bit different. Last week he announced on Boca’s Facebook page that the UA-area taco shop was accepting prepaid orders for African lion, to be served on Feb. 16. Orders must be placed by 3 p.m. Feb. 7.”

Are you KIDDING me? First off, there’s no way this can be legal. Second, where do you score LION MEAT? Turns out he’s not the first person to capitalize on the “lion meat” gimmick. Another resturaunt scored big with Lion Burgers. Pic Below:

Lion Tacos cost about $8 a peice. Don’t think many people will be able to afford to cook them at home either. The meat costs around $100 A POUND for ground and $400 A POUND for tenderloin. So…Would you eat it?
