I had ox testicle for dinner in Johannesburg !!!
But before I tell you more about that. I'd like to show you some places I visited during my city tour in Johannesburg and Pretoria.
First stop was Gold Reef City, a large amusement park in Johannesburg, located on an old gold mine. There is a museum dedicated to gold mining on the grounds where it is possible to see a gold-containing ore vein and see how real gold is poured into barrels.

On each outside corner of the Monument there is a statue, respectively representing Piet Retief, Andries Pretorius, Hendrik Potgieter and an "unknown" leader (representative of all the other Voortrekker leaders). Each statue weighs approximately 6 tons.
And highlight of the day would be dinner at Carnivore which was a very unique experience. It's a meat speciality restaurant, where you can find every type of meat imaginable. From crocodile, ox testicles, camel, ostrich, etc. I'm really glad they have limited selection of game meats nowadays. They used to have elephant, giraffe, zebra and hippo on the menu. I would be terribly sad if I saw that. All meats are roasted on traditional Masai swords, and the waiters come around with the meat on a sword and carve it off onto your plate at your request.
So yeah....I did try the ox testicles which I think it tasted quite good and chewy. As for crocodile meat, it tastes just like chicken but with more fats, I don't like it.

So have you tried any bizzare food before ?
