#21, Two Egg Rolls & Wonton Soup – To Go

By Wyatt Earp | October 28, 2008

Hey, this ain’t General Tso’s!

Do you ever wonder what is in your “beef” lo-mein?

Health officials shut down a suburban Buffalo restaurant after an inspector found employees butchering a dead deer inside the business. Erie County Health Department officials said they got a tip Friday about a dead deer in the China King restaurant in the town of Hamburg, just south of Buffalo.

An inspector soon arrived and saw the deer being butchered in the kitchen.

State health laws prohibit butchering an animal inside a restaurant.

Officials don’t know whether the deer had been killed by a hunter or a vehicle. They said there was no indication the deer meat was served to any customers.

(H/T: Drudge)

Hmmm….does this mean that shrimp doesn’t come in toast form?

Confuscius say, “Bambi taste good for lunch.”

    They are a mess to butcher, so I understand the law. That being said, I’d still eat there.

    Maybe I hang out with too many hunters.

    Years ago the Bzxter Truck Stop was owned by this Chinese dude who, ahem, would cut corners to save buckage. He would keep meat, for example, beyond its expiration date. One day the Placer County Inspector came and removed all the expired meat from the cafe, threw it in the dumpster and then poured bleach over it. After he left, the owner removed the meat, washed it, then served it — according to firsthand info I had from a waitress who used to work there. The Baxter Truck Stop is, shall we say, no more.

    Deer is good stuff. It’s better than the teriaki rat they serve in the joints around here.

    This is a very interesting story.

    If you survive the first visit to this type of restaurant you must be a hearty person.

    Hey, anyone know how to say “roadkill” in Chinese?

    I thought it was “Moo Goo Gai Pan,” but I could be mistaken. My Chinese is a little rusty.

    Mmmmm. General Tso’s Venison. Mmmmm.

    I’ve made it with goat, chicken, and turkey so why not deer?

    And I’ve butchered chickens on my kitchen table so this news article is a non-issue for me. Just make sure to rinse the hair off before putting it in the batter and frying it up.

    Aren’t you supposed to be in a hospital bed having a near death experience or something? What are you doing blogging? Not that I’m complaining.

    And what’s wrong w/ venison? ;-)

    Or,..nothing a little soy sauce can’t cover up!

    I’ve heard from folks that it can be a really bloody mess. (The smell must be lovely.)

    Ewwwwww! Guess it would leave the insides clean as a whistle, though.

    I’ve only had venison once. I’m willing to try it again, but it is really expensive. (Ew! Rat!?!?!?)

    Down, boy, down.


    Uh….beef fried rice?

    American diving team? (Sorry, trying to imagine you watching synchronized diving.)

    PuPu platter?

    I wonder if any of them tastes like chicken?

    I inspired you without trying! Come to think of it, it might be good.

    I’m (RT) blogging for Wyatt. I’m just signed in under his name.

    I think the idea that it might have been roadkill was the issue. Wasn’t there a case a few years ago where it was made legal for people to use roadkill? Anyone feel like doing the research?

    Does this mean Wyatt is having a sex change operation? (I am so mean! he-he)

    There was a Chinese place around here for a bit that utilized roadkill….or killed anything that wandered into the parking lot. Just believe me when I say I know why Szechuan Chicken sounds like Weshuwant Kitten when they say it.

    Let’s see…since last Wednesday I’ve had fried venison tenderloin, chili made with ground venison, a casserole made with ground venison, venison sausage, spaghetti with venison marinara. Heh, I might turn into a deer after all. ;)

    Well….he does shoot blanks, now. Maybe they finished the job?

    Well, you do have a white tail. HA! (Did I just channel Wyatt? Scary.)

    Speaking of Chinese restaurants, chicken and parking lots, a few years back we were doing a morning hose change on a fire engine across the street from a Chinese restaurant. Looked over to the parking lot, and a guy was butchering live chickens and draining the blood into the storm drain. He put’em back in the cage they came in, and took them inside presumably to pluck feathers before making lunch out of them. I never ate there again.

    I guess Mike won’t be coming here for dinner anytime soon.

    Ewwww!!!!!!!! There’s no need for that in the city. (Assuming you’re in the city.)

    My mom tells me stories of her dad killing the chickens and my grandmom plucking the feathers and cleaning them out.

    Just don’t make him watch.
