Skip to comments.Secret Trade in Monkey Meat That Could Unleash Ebola in UK: How an Appetite for African Delicacies
Posted on 08/03/2014 2:05:36 AM PDT by nickcarraway
With the sun beating down on the strange and exotic-looking meats on sale some dripping blood, some heavily smoked and impossible to identify the sights and sounds at this London market are straight out of Africa. Skinned goat carcasses dangle overhead, blackened cow heads and lamb brains are lined up in trays, while baskets tucked in darker corners brim with yellowing strips of cured flesh.
Nearby, women hawk spices, cassava and yams, as men in shacks offer cheap airline tickets to Nigeria, Ghana and Cameroon, as well as cash transfers back to family members still living on the continent.
At Lagos restaurant, just past Monni Matters foreign exchange and the God Is Good Hair Salon, there is nothing fancy about the cheap seats and chipped tables but whats on the menu is a taste of home.
At £5 a plate, dishes include Nkwobi, a traditional meal of spiced cow feet and assorted meat and fish with pounded yam, through to giant African snails, served as part of a designer stew with, again, unnamed assorted meats.

Yeah, we always eat dead stuff we find on the ground here, too.
Seeing roadkill and then relating it to meat all packaged neatly at Costco has just about made me vegetarian!
All cultures are equal.
All my family members over the age of 12 have just left for a week at the coast. I’m looking forward to not having to cook big dead pieces of meat for a week.
Saw some stories years/decades ago that attributed HIV to the habit of eating monkey brains.
Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.
The purpose of the Bring Out Your Dead ping list (formerly the Ebola ping list) is very early warning of emerging pandemics, as such it has a high false positive rate.
So far the false positive rate is 100%.
At some point we may well have a high mortality pandemic, and likely as not the Bring Out Your Dead threads will miss the beginning entirely.
*sigh* Such is life, and death...
Yep...and AIDS also came from West Africa via chimps. If these savages would just quit eating and screwing monkeys maybe these diseases would die out.
I’ll bet that Obama is licking his chops and drooling while thinking of fresh monkey steaks on the grill along with some chilled elephant blood dakaris on the porch.
And dogs, they eat a lot of dogs in Africa too.
You make it all sound so good...:)
Kind of amazing considering muslims supposedly think dogs are unclean...
The “Road Kill Cafe” is a real place ... but the food isn’t really road kill.
Kinda makes you wanna cheer for ebola. Over there that is.
At least it does me.
I could live on fruit and toast.
