I like this particular item. However, I once dined at a Filipino joint where the staff had a policy of refusing to serve it to "American" customers, unless they said that they had had it before, and genuinely liked it. They'd apparently been burned by curious westerners trying it, and declaring their dislike.
The BF likes it but(t) I. Just. Can't.
Maybe Filipino's don't know how to prepare it well?
I had it in Argentina and they toss it on the grill where it stays tough. They rarely braise anything.
I've never seen it at the Grocery, however thinking about it I am sure a Chinatown butcher would carry it.
Not carried in grocery stores here but in many Asian and Mexican stores. They eat some weird stuff.
I've had it OP and it is really delicious...time consuming, but easy to prepare and very much worth it.
Never seen pig tail before! I bet that would be good as well.
You people will put anything into your mouths.
I tried pig ears as tapas once, since that's supposed to be traditional. Not Recommended.
I frequently make oxtail stew. Wonderful, rich flavor.
On my recent visit to New York I had oxtail stew at a Cuban/Chinese restaurant on Broadway in the upper westside. The name is La Caridad 78 It was good and hit the spot on a cold December day. Sucked the bones dry! Btw, the side was a huge plate of rice and beans, as hungry as I was I could only eat half. It must be very popular because the take out delivery boys were busy the whole time I was there.
I'm linking the Yelp page to this restaurant.
