An Arizona restaurant called “Boca” has served tacos with meat from alligators, elk, kangaroos and rattlesnakes, but has decided to follow in the footsteps of another Arizona establishment, Il Vinaio, by serving lion meat. Boca will offer the tacos for “Taco Wednesday” starting next month, but apparently will not be using meat from an endangered species:
“I’m doing the African lion to get my name out,” owner Bryan Mazon told the Arizona Star. “I’ve never tried it myself, but this one really caught my eye.”
Although Il Vinaio sold out, they also encountered protesters, who will probably reappear for this product.
