Lion Tacos Featured at Tucson Taqueria

Mmm…tacos.

A Tucson taqueria is taking orders for African lion tacos as part of their “Exotic Taco Shop Wednesdays” promotion.

Having made cow-eye tacos a couple of months ago, I consider myself somewhat adventurous when it comes to Mexican food, but this is kind of ridiculous.

Legally, the FDA says it’s kosher but that doesn’t necessarily make it a good idea. Plus they are $8.75 a pop.

AZStar.net:

According to the Food and Drug Administration, lion and other game meat can be sold as long as the species isn’t endangered.

For the lion, diners will build their own Sonoran street-style taco. They can add cabbage, guacamole, pickled red onions and diced cucumbers and any of the six house-made salsas to the tacos. (read more)

The restaurant, Boca Tocas y Tequila, is piggybacking on the success of another Arizona lion meat publicity stunt.

Don’t forget the guacamole, it masks that gamey lion flavor.
