Eating Dog Legs for Dinner, China

eating dog shenzen china


While in Shenzhen, China, I eat at this place all the time. On the 2nd last day I noticed they were serving dog… I asked if I could have the chicken pointing to what looked like chicken, they said it was frog.

That got me scared to point to what I was eating, I never asked them and assumed it was beef. Therefor I’ve never had dog or eaten it every night for about a week. I did see several business men come and order it though. It’s supposedly gives you vitality or something.

The reason eating dog is so taboo is not only because they are our best friend but because of the way they kill them. I am going to assume I was eating beef, I mean, it tasted like beef? The dogs they typically use are exclusively grey hounds for commercial use.

That said, dogs do go missing often… Met some friends whose dog “ran away”.

Tips hat,

    Don’t be afraid dog meat tastes not like beef. Really hard to mistake one for another, in case they are not terribly spiced
