I’ve never been much into offal. Mum has always said its just (awf-ul) off-al 😉

However can you classify ox tongue as offal when it’s a muscle just like meat in a leg or arm? I’m going with no for the sake of my arguement!

Anyway, I have decided that ox tongue needs to get more cred because it is really amazingly delicious. It’s springy and lean and had a rich taste and if its served BBQ on a Yakitori stick (like I have become obsessed with) then it’s positively melt in the mouth.

Do yourself a favour and order it.

Apparently it’s great in a pasta bake covered with cheese… Challenge accepted!
