Why Everyone Should Go Eat a Pecker

This guest post has been brought to you by: Chad Klyne at WithoutBordersChefs.com

One of my favourite things to do when I travel is exploring not only the cities or countries, but seeing what different types of food these places have on offer. Being a Chef by trade, the most exciting thing for me is discovering different foods that you would never and I mean NEVER find on a menu back home. And what better place to do this than Asia!

In this case we were in Malaysia, Penang to be exact. One of the so called food meccas of the world, how exciting! While strolling through the streets we stumbled across a man holding a one meter long bull penis complete with matching ginormous testicles. The funny thing about it was that he was dangling his schlong around trying to entice customers to try his specialty. Now I know everyone travels to gain new experiences but having a penis in my mouth was definitely not on the top of my bucket list.

Sorry to say that I was behind the camera at this particular feast but as you can see, my brother Clayton and I grew up in a family where we couldn’t leave the dinner table unless we finished everything off of our plate. Clayton didn’t seem to have a problem with lapping up everything in his bowl. It’s actually better than it looks and being on a budget, eating bull penis soup is cheap and can help you save some moula!

Top 5 reasons you should eat a schlong:

1)      When braised long enough, it is soft and gelatinous on the outside and quite chewy on the inside due to the cartilage         but makes a beautiful and rich stock.  
2)      Sicilians are widely known to eat dried bull’s penis as a cure for a hangover.

3)      In many Asian countries it is believed that eating a dick is the natural form of Viagra.
4)      Rooster testicles help women stay young and eating penises is good for your skin! (so they say…)
5)      One deer penis has the same potency as one bull penis.

I have eaten lots of stuff that most people might find disgusting, but a tasting menu of animal penis and testicles is not in my future, at least not if I have anything say ;-)

About the Sicilian hangover remedy: as far as I can tell it’s an old folk’s tale and it still circulates but I have never met a Sicilian who had done it or knew anyone who had. As far as I know the genitals of animals are mostly dried to be fed to dogs.
What I can tell you is that dried bull penis is used to make a specific kind of whip in Italy, especially in Tuscany, where that kind of whip has been used since the middle ages in the Palio di Siena.

The video is apparently not available in my country U.S.A. – probably better that I don’t see it anyway!

Wow, it is crazy the food you can find abroad. Not really sure if this really is a delicacy but fair play to you for giving it a try.

When in China, I have been eating a lot of weird food, from dog’s meat to fried bees and cockroaches, but eating bull penis soup? It would be a NO! :D

If not for the taste then look at all the wonderful health benefits!;)

I dunno; this may be one that I would have to pass-up. Gelatenous and chewy do not sound like a winning combination.

“Rooster testicles help women stay young and eating penises is good for your skin!” haha! This reason made me think if this is really possible!? Even if it is possible, I think I’ll pass on this food. lol

What's a Pecker?!? January 7, 2014 at 8:04 AM

Fun! Looks great! OMG I LOVE PECKERS.

Another guest post? Wouldn’t want you to get distracted from leaving ridiculous spam comments on everyone else’s blogs, would we?

Well if you weren’t such a pussy and left your name/website, I would do you a favor and stop reading/commenting on your blog :)

Well, it could be one of dozens of bloggers. U’ve cultivated quite a reputation for leaving nonsensical comments that show u’ve read precisely nothing of the post ur commenting on, except maybe the title! :D

Again, you continue to hide and not show your identity, so I’m not sure how to resolve your issue.

OR like a mature human being you could have come and talked to me about this problem you seem to have… Instead you hide yourself, implying you sit around talking about me with others and make mean comments on my blog.

Beef Torpedo Soup. That is a fantastic euphemism!

For some reason eating testicles sounds worse than eating penis, is anyone else with me? I’d eat either before I’d eat a cockroach, though. Yecchhh.

This wouldn’t be at the top of my bucket list, but I’d probably end up doing it after a couple of cocktails ;)

Bon appetit!

Here’s a little joke related to this subject. My apologies to those who already know it:

A big Texan stopped at a local restaurant following a day roaming around in Mexico ..

While sipping his tequila, he noticed a sizzling, scrumptious looking platter being served at the next table. Not only did it look good, the smell was wonderful.

He asked the waiter, ‘What is that you just served?’

The waiter replied, ‘Ah senor, you have excellent taste! Those are called Cojones de Toro, bull’s testicles from the bull fight this morning. A delicacy!’

The cowboy said, ‘What the heck, bring me an order.’

The waiter replied, ‘I am so sorry senor. There is only one serving per day because there is only one bull fight each morning. If you come early and place your order, we will be sure to save you this delicacy.’

The next morning, the cowboy returned, placed his order, and that evening was served the one and only special delicacy of the day. After a few bites, inspecting his platter, he called to the waiter and said, ‘These are delicious, but they are much, much smaller than the ones I saw you serve yesterday.’

The waiter shrugged his shoulders and replied, ‘Si, Senor…

Sometimes the bull wins.’

Hands down Malaysia has the best food IMHO. It’s more varied than Thai cuisine. Just as delicious, safe and cheap.

Btw just followed you on Twitter as well – great travel blog you have :) Looking forward to connect!
