It's not often I have the opportunity to dine on something before I've even heard of it. Okay, maybe quinoa, but that's a plant that tastes like sand, so I'm not going to count it. Not so the mysterious kudu which, when served on a bun with lettuce and tomato, tastes like a slightly overcooked turkey burger, with a little spicy kick. So I figured the kudu was something rather turkey-shaped, with wings and a beak and perhaps some festive plumage. Imagine my surprise when this majestic guy emerged from the brush, all twisty-horned and grandiose, and our guide said, "look....a Kudu."
Tonight I'm having the salad.
