What does whale taste like?


When on Iceland recently I had a local speciality for dinner: Whale. Interesting experience.

When the waiter came with the food I first thought there’d been some mistake in the kitchen:



I was expecting something fish-like and apparently got a steak. But whales are mammals, so they actually don’t taste like fish either. What did it taste like? Fairly similar to horse, I’d say.

What’s the strangest animal you’ve eaten?

PS: As far as I understand mink whale is not really endangered.
