Sorry that the comic is late. I had the comic done WAY in advance, I just forgot to upload it. Yesterday was an incredibly busy day, being my birthday and all, but that’s still no excuse for me forgetting this. I’m sorry, everyone, and I’ll do my best to prevent this from happening again.
This comic is based on one of my own experiences at a Churrascaria/Brazillian Steakhouse styled restaurant. For those who have never been to one of these, you basically have a little coaster that says stop and go on it. When it’s flipped to “go” waiters start coming to your table bringing you meats of all kinds imaginable and you get to pick what you want and what you don’t want. When you flip the coaster to “stop”, then the waiters leave you alone.
You get to eat as much food as you want, and there’s also a salad bar of sorts that have additional food you can eat. The Churrascaria that I tend to favor, Rafains, also tend to give the patrons an endless supply of fried bananas and garlic mashed potatoes while you dine. So you definitely get a wide variety of foods to try.
Churrascaria is slowly growing to be one of my favorite dining establishments, unfortunately they are also hella’ expensive, so I tend not to go to them very often. But man, if I could I’d definitely would like to visit them a lot more. Maybe when I win the lottery.
Anyways, this comic is based on one such Churrascaria visit where I ate every single type of meat that was offered to me. For the most part, this was all pretty typical stuff. However when I least expected, a waiter came up to me and asked me if I’d be interested in eating a “chicken heart”. Well, I’ve never eaten such an item, and it didn’t sound all that appeasing, but it was small and I tried everything else, so I figured “What the hell” and told him I would eat one. After much hesitation, I eventually tried the chicken’s tiny artery filling organ.
In short, I didn’t like it. It didn’t taste bad, in fact, it pretty much tasted like dark chicken meat. It was the texture that I didn’t like. It was squishy, slimy, and just plain weird feeling. The weird hollowness of the organ didn’t help either. But at least I now know that I don’t like chicken hearts as a dinner subject. I also learned that eating a chicken’s heart doesn’t give me the powers of a chicken. Darn.
