As I was grocery shopping today, I was a little on edge walking through the meat department. It isn’t as graphic as the hanging meat in Singapore’s Chinatown but it’s still interesting. Sausage is super popular here as it’s the token meat at barbecues. I’ve grown quite fond of the sausage but can’t say I’ll be trying any of these parts found at the grocery store.

New Zealand’s tripe is cow’s bleached stomach lining

They said it’s really popular with the old folks. I bet, food (if you can call it that) for only 2 bucks in New Zealand is rare. Not for me though. The butchers even thought it was icky.
