Pork Brain For Christmas! YUk yet Mouthwatering

This Christmas was wild. Wild in the sense that I had something that I’ve always feel disgusted yet enjoyed every bit of it. Yeah, I had a blast but what really stand out this Christmas was, last night I had this pork brain dish. Sounds disgusting and gross right! But don’t judge it by the name.

Let me start from the beginning. Me and my buddies, we have this tradition of hosting dinner party at Christmas Night, turn by turn. This Christmas, it was Akum's turn. Akum is from a small town in the North Eastern Part of India, a true Metal Head and my best friend. In his part of the town this dish is a treat. He told me that they cook this dish only on very special occasion and since this was the first time, he decided to treat us with this disgustingly delicious dish. Though there were variety of option but this one really stand on.

Yeah we all had it. Not because we are adventurous but because he drove some 200miles just for this stuff. Seriously hard work must be appreciated. No doubt two of my buddies puked to their heart content but I was not one of them. To be honest, it was very tough for me to take that first bite. But you know what, it was one of the most delicious, the most amazing thing I have ever tasted. The way he cooked it was so unique. It was spicy, hot and mouthwatering (Writing about this is making my mouth watery)

Here are some pictures of what I had this Christmas:
This was how it looked before cooking

THE BRAIN Plus other stuffs before cooking

This was after cooking. Doesn't this look mouthwatering.

No this is no way related to Brain.. Another one of his pork dishes
My Favorite, My Plate, Smoked Beef!!!


  1. Well. That looks yummy...but pork brain?

    I think I'd do better if I didn't know, tasted it, liked it, and then somebody...maybe...told me.
    Happy holidays!

  2. I've tasted it and though i sounds gross, its very delicious....Looks mouthwatering

  3. Can't even imagine me having that!

  4. Throw on some parsley or cilantro on something & it makes anything look prettier & festive.

    I was going to say what Janie said...I'd be better off NOT knowing what it was!

  5. Hi Suburbia Steph and Janie,

    Even me agree to you guys.. Its always better to NOT know what it was! until someone tells you that the mouthwatering delicacy was of some animal brain..

  6. Thanks for stopping by :) Uh, I think I will pass on the pork brain, but we did have raw beef sandwiches on Christmas eve. It is rye bread, a little ground beef, i little onion, salt and pepper. :)

  7. I'd try it! You just never know, right??

    Thanks for popping by today!

  8. Hello, Thank you for visiting my blog. I love your blog, I look forward to talking with you, Happy Holidays!

  9. My dad once offered us a joke. I don't have the stomach or courage to try it, I'm afraid.

  10. I guess you never know if you like something until you try it... But I think I would be among your puking buddies on this one!

  11. I have to say that I have eaten some unusual things and I am always better off not knowing what it is until after. And then...hey...if it was good, I had it again! Happy New Year!

  12. It looks delicious. I think I would have had to at least try it. My grandma used to make head cheese, which is meat cut from the head of a sheep, cow or pig and made into a lunch type meat.

  13. pork brain?? it looks...shivers

    but hey, thanks for following me & the comment. Thank you(:

    Have a great new year ahead! (;

  14. oooh dear.......the first picture made me almost puke. Bless you.

  15. You are a brave eater! LOL! I don't think I'd be able to try it...
