To Eat or Not To Eat (Chicken Feet)?

Eating chicken feet with chopsticks

Yes, that’s me holding a chicken’s foot with my chopsticks. And yes I did eat it.

This photo was taken on a brief visit to Hong Kong a few years ago during a delicious dim sum dinner. I had two eating companions with me during this meal. One ordered the chicken feet and ate them just as happily as I did. My other companion was flabbergasted and refused to touch them.

So, to eat or not to eat chicken feet?

Thank you for reading!

    Love them’feet once in a while, i.e. once every 2 years or so.
    It may take some courage the first time you put it in your mouth but it’s kind of entertaining after all. Great blog, keep up the good work and please our tummies.

  2. OK so here’s the weird thing: I grew up in Taiwan where chicken feet really aren’t that uncommon, but I’ve never tried any. I dunno. It’s more about me being lazy than weirded out to be honest. It seems like an awful lot of work for a little meat! PS: you preeeetty!

    • Hi Sunny! Thanks for coming by :) . You know what, you are so right, it is a lot of work for a little meat!

  3. Did you enjoy it? I often get chicken feet when I go to yumcha, delicious and slimy! Unfortunately most of my friends don’t eat chicken feet and I can’t eat a whole plate by myself so sometimes I miss out.

  4. Eat of course! It’s one of my favorite parts of the chicken! I love chewing on it, sucking off the skin and tendon and spitting out the little bones. That sounded horrible didn’t it? :P
