It's happened again, this time in Mexico City, at a small restaurant near the zócalo.
We all decided on the pollo mole and having a preference for dark meat I ordered the leg (pierna) while the others ordered the breast (pechuga). I was served a very large and very meaty leg of about 6 inches in length with a huge knuckle at one end. The meat was entirely white, very tender, with a smooth texture, and slightly sweet but it definitely did not taste like any chicken I've ever had. Being Canadian I didn't make a fuss so I ate some of it to be polite. Any idea what it was?
The previous time was about a year ago at a small outdoor restaurant near the Morelia Monarch reserve, it was exactly the same thing and at that time we thought it might be something like guinea fowl but I'm not sure what a guinea fowl tastes like.
Please don't tell me it was Rover.
