— Ace Not good:
Want to become strong and potent like a tiger? Then why not try our special tiger meat dish? This was the question posed to customers at a restaurant in Hailin, Northeast China's Heilongjiang Province.
The establishment was later fined and ordered to close for inspection, after a local newspaper revealed its recommendation of the outlawed dish.
The restaurant was offering a dish of stir-fried tiger meat with hot peppers for 800 yuan (US$9 , according to reports.
The tiger-meat story published in a local newspaper has created shock waves.
Police subsequently raided the restaurant and confiscated the so-called tiger meat.
After inspection, the owner, Ma Shikun, confessed that the so-called tiger meat was actually donkey meat that had been dressed with tiger urine, to give the dish a "special" flavour.
Yeahp. It tasted like chicken.
Thanks to cutaway.
BTW, it looks like there's a problem with your tags. They work, but the whole piece lights up when you hit the link.

Why tiger piss and donkey meat with a carefully chosen wine that complements the tiger piss marinade, of course!

Honest. That is the story I was told. I wasn't drinking then but I am now. And I quote:
"Wassa matta? You no like meow-meow?"

The one time a Chinese restaurant admits to serving cat, it turns out not to be?
