Last Saturday, me and the girls decided to go out, dress pretty, and party our little butts off till dawn. We haven't gone to downtown Vancouver in a while so we decided to hit up Wildebeest to try their exotic and much talked about menu.
foie gras is french for 'fat liver' and is essentially the liver of a duck or goose who have been force fed to get extra fat. :( It's sad.. I know. Nobody at the table particularly liked the taste of foie gras because it was quite pungent but it was a novelty item that I'm glad I tried.
Sweetbreads are thymus glands of the calf. Funny enough, it tasted LIKE glands when I tried a bite. Very chewy, and organ-y in texture.
Overall, my girlfriends and I thought Wildebeest was alright. It was definitely a cool place to check out despite the higher price point and the hit-or-miss dishes. I'm not raving about this restaurant, but I won't be completely writing them off either.
