I have tried it on numerous occasions and at different restaurants. Absolutely gross, but clams, mussels, oysters, and the alleged delicacies known as cow tongue, pigs feet, livers(great bait for striped bass), kidneys, heart, brains, and rocky and smokey mountain oysters fall into the same category. These do not sound appetizing when tenderloin, sirloin, ribs, and ribeyes are there to eat. Got long winded there. I figure if they are big, they are lucky or smart enough not to fall over.
