Bacon Wrapped What....Ever.

A few weeks ago 'The Best Thing I Ever Ate' stopped by the restaurant..
Rocco DiSpirito kindly suggested that my lamb chops were the best wrapped thing he'd eaten..

So I thought I'd pass along the recipe..
really quite easy..

I use New Zealand lamb chops since they're small and really tender.. but any lamb chop will do.
then they're wrapped in bacon and fried.. (they can also be baked) .. but the frying really seals in all the juices.

I serve them with a salsa verde (southern Italian style)...which is:
capers, shallots, garlic, lemon, anchovies, parsley, and olive oil.

Here's a photo...

And here's a link to a real recipe on the Heritage Foods website.

So while eating our King Cobra Snake (post to come..promise)
our servers attempted to up sell us on a local specialty..

the Flying Fox Bat..

I'm sure someone on television has already taped an episode eating one of these creatures.. describing the taste and texture. (refer to one of those)

I passed.. this bat was freaked out.. and when it started defecating it became too much...even for me.

If we had been hunting and shot it.. that's one thing..
this was another.

Apparently eating bats are good for the male libido... but this seems to be the case for most anything in Vietnam.

In places like Guam the eating of bats have been linked to causing SARS!! yikes!
