Travel Channel's Andrew Zimmern Eats Giant Wildebeest Eyeball
|Sure, he looks perfectly normal, here.|
This time, however, it seems Andrew has met his match. On location in Namibia, Andrew helps a local tribe hunt a 600-pound wildebeest. He says that most of the meat will be donated to a local orphanage, but the tribe has saved a few choice bits for him -- namely, two giant eyes stuffed into a stomach and flash-cooked. "I generally like eyeballs, but I've never had one this big, cooked so briefly," he says as he pops one into his gaping yaw. "That's not good," he proclaims, likening the taste to a gamey plastic flip-flop.
Andrew will be at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival's Grand Tasting Village and "The Best Thing I Ever Ate" event. Let's hope he's telling tales and not presenting a dish. Watch Andrew chow down on a giant eyeball after the jump... if you dare.
