What’s In That Taco? Lion Meat?

20 Jan

Yes, apparently anything goes in Arizona. Boca Tacos y Tequila, a Tuscon restaurant, plans to serve a taco filled with lion meat on Feb. 16.

Over the past 6 months, since they launched exotic meat Wednesdays, the restaurant has served tacos with python, alligator, elk, kangaroo and rattlesnake meats. Last week, owner Bryan Mazon announced that the restaurant would accept orders for the lion tacos.

“I’ve gotten a lot of questions, like if it’s legal,” said Mazon, adding that a few lion tacos have been reserved so far. “We’re still a month out, too.”

Each taco will cost $8.75 since the price of one pound of ground lion meet is $100. Apparently the past alligator and rattlesnake tacos were especially popular.

The owners plan to order the lion meat from a farm outside of Los Angeles.  Would you order a lion taco?
