Rat doesn’t sound half bad but I think I’ll pass on the free range rat. I want mine farm raised and grain fed.

Nothing like a good movie, the first movie I took my future wife to was Jaws, I guess it was ok, cause we're coming up on 38 years.

My Mom visited Bangkok in 1958.
At a hotel, she ordered Pud Thai.

It was served with honey bees.

King Rat

GMTA.

Ancient Romans considered the dormouse a delicacy, and raised them.

Think arboreal squirrel, rather than Lewis Carroll's rodent.

(That's not to say that squirrels aren't rodents either...)

Here in the Philippines they will eat just about anything.
How about a yummy balut...a fertilized duck egg. If you are lucky, it won’t have too many feathers.

Growing up on a farm, I always think of rats as being grain fed.

Pressed rat and warthog.

After that meal, one needs to exercise. "Anyone for tennis? Wouldn't that be nice."

Balut is good. But, yeah, the more mature ones with beak and stuff are harder to eat.
