One of the great things about visiting different countries is trying the local cuisine.

Most people love digging into the best dishes on offer – even if they’re VERY different to their normal fish and chip or pie and mash.

But when one mum was on a trip to Russia she was served up a rather unusual looking dish, and she had no idea what it was.

The waitress didn’t speak English, so she couldn’t even ask about the rather unappetising dish.

She shared a photo of the weird dish on the parenting website Mumsnet, writing: "To ask what in the holy hell have I just been served?

"It looks like rat. Please tell me it isn’t rat?

"I’ve eaten many a strange thing in my day (I have a weird job that often requires me to) but feel like rat would be a new low.

"For context, I’m in Russia and was served it by a non English speaking Housekeeper who I suspect doesn’t like me much.

"It’s rat isn’t it?"

She later added: "She’s disappeared off somewhere so I’d have to ask tomorrow, though not sure if she works Sundays.

"It’s really small, easily would fit in the Palm of my hand so not likely a d***."

Unfortunately for her, many other users seemed to think it was a rat.

One wrote: "Definitely rodent, judging by the shape of the front legs. Tail looks quite thick, so I’d guess rat too."

Another said: "Looks like a rat to me. The tail is very suspicious. Where are the back legs though?"

Would you eat this dish?


One thought she should just avoid eating it, writing : "If you don’t know what it is……….don’t put it in your mouth. A philosophy that has served me well."

But others were convinced it was some sort of bird.

One replied: "It’s a bird of some sort, what you’re all calling a tail is a neck, my guess would be , quail, pigeon or partridge, it only got 2 legs."

Another commented: "I think it’s a bird and the tail is the attached windpipe it’s just butchered differently."
