Ananova: Fried rat shocks diners in Chilean restaurant
A restaurant in Chile is serving fried rat with potatoes as one of its main courses.
It is a traditional dish in parts of neighbouring Peru but has shocked diners in Santiago, says Las Ultimas Noticias.
Marco Barandarian, the Peruvian chef of the Barandarian restaurant, said: "Here people get all disgusted and ask how can we serve such dish but we have eaten them forever in Peru."
Mr Barandarian added: "The meat is red and tastes much better than rabbit. It is like pork and we serve the whole rat, head included."
I suppose this is one way of getting rid of vermin.
