  1. It is so true Cantonese eat everything. I am so proud that I am a northern guy who hates eating those weird stuff like dogs, cats, feet, heads, and guts, etc.

  2. I have been a fan for a while. I even contributed to your kickstarter. But now I hate you. My kids saw the Dick Mountain video, and now that's the only place they want to go when we're in Guangdong next month. Thanks a lot.

  3. Love it man! The "spooky" music rif added when you finally chomped down the head could have been MUCH louder. I love the doc feel to the beginning. Your work is getting more and more entertaining!

  4. I think the Chinese are right, you can eat anything. As long as you like the taste, the animal isn't 'suffering' or going extinct, go ahead and eat it.

  5. I like my food seasoned with lots of garlic and onion, sage, I wonder if Vivi will not like our highly seasoned food like hot wings, etc.?

  6. Hi C-Milk love your videos. I lived in China for 4 years and I'm a vegetarian I'm sure you can understand it was a struggle haha and I did eat meat by accident a few times. It would be cool to see you do a buddhist vegetarian restaurant sometime to give people an idea of vegetarian chinese food. I miss China all the time so your videos are a way for me to reminisce keep up the good work.

  7. In the seventies many Germans kept pigeons as a second income: They slaughtered and sold the gutted and plucked pigeons to restaurants and oftenly to aquaintances in exchange of other food.
    However as they are small and make as much efforts as chicken do, breeders lost their interest in raising them. And on the consumers side: As pigeon is equally when not even more expensive than chicken, people tend to decide for chicken or turkey.

    Today only the elderly people remember that pigeon were once a widely common dish. The younger ones would feel disgusted as they never experienced it, let alone having an opportunity to try it

  8. I remember reading that Nicola Tesla had a thing for pigeons. He used to feed them, take some of them back to his hotel room and even it is claimed he fell in love with one pigeon. Although I don't think he would have ever eaten them. He was a bit eccentric to say the least

  9. Dang, I must go to that restaurant next time when I back to Huizhou. I didn't know this restaurant. Craving grilled pigeon now

  10. Chinese people eat everything that walks, runs, flys, creeps, crawls, hops, burrows, swims or slithers. I've eaten pigeons in restaurants in Egypt but generally their hard to find as food in Europe or the U.S..

  11. I hate that in china they eat dogs i have 2 and i love them so mutch and it`s sad to know that they get killed and served as food

  12. Taking into account the high level of China's environmental pollution those pigeons are living in, one can't even begin to imagine all sorts of toxins their meat would be full of. Never eat one.

  13. Duck is the best….just like pigeon. I don't think i ever eat pigeon but from the look of it, it looks no different than duck.

  14. Great vid. Laughing here as usual. Looked good! I love turkey dark meat so I'm sure I would enjoy pigeon which I have never had. Not sure where I could even get some here in the US. Thanks for the vid Lao and Vivi. Take care.

  15. Doesn't seem weird to me. I have been Quail hunting out here in the Sierra Nevadas, and I'd expect that to be a similar analog for Pigeon. Also cooked up some Squirrel from out here in the mountains, and that's literally a rodent (and tasty).

  16. The title is illiterate. Drop the s off of pigeons or you are saying the restaurants feed pigeons rather than people.

  18. lmao.. as a vegan, the intro switch triggerd me xD. Makes me realize I'm just to sensitive about animals sometimes.

    But.. you did say; if you can forget about the dove and what it symbolizes, it's kind of tasty. translation: if you can shut off your moral standards and natural empathic nature, you can value taste over life. And when you where eating the head, i could tell you found it cruel and morbid. I suggest you don't go against your compassionate nature and become vegan ๐Ÿ˜‹

  19. It's funny how animals that a plentiful are pests and stuff. Like In New England for along time lobster was thought of poor ppl food a 120 years ago.

  20. Completely misunderstood the title to mean that it is a restaurant that only serves pigeons, and not humans (i.e. make food for pigeons instead of for people)… which didn't make much sense to me and so piqued my curiosity. Great video nonetheless!

  21. Actually, I notice when you guys say thank you to local servicemen, you don't have a eye contact with them, after looking through a lot of videos you posted . I over think, maybe.

  22. chinese diet is a hugely different from the diet of the early jews in israel

    mosaic law banned alot of non-kosher foods, from pigs, camels, shellfish, predatory birds, sharks, hares, the israelites actually had a very restricted diet

    in china, they seem to eat absolutely everything. i've seen dog meat, rabbit meat, shark meat, and now pidgeon meat, chinese people aren't picky when it comes to meat, chinese diet is one of the least restricted and they eat pretty much any animal

  23. haha I grow up near a huge hospital in China , there were sooo many Pigeon restaurants (only sell Pigeons not even other birds), a lot of patients believe Pigeon soup helps recover from the sickness ~ ….

  24. Funny. No one has ever seen pigeon on the menu of western restaurants. Well. If you go to a traditional high end western restaurant, look for squab. It is said that squab was a favorite of royalty. The birds are harvested young, but fattened and prevented from ever flying to keep the meat tender.

  25. Squab < Pidgins >have been commercially raised in North America since the early 1900s. They were very popular during the great depression because of their ability to nearly feed themselves and many rural familys would not have survived without them. Currently what we think of as "tree rats" or feral pidgins are very different from the breeds we raise for food. King pidgins being the most popular. They are nearly three times the size of the wild type that poop on the statues in the park.

  26. As Shanghai local, I am very jealous. There have so many delicious things to eat, and with very low price in Guangdong province.

  27. Pidgeons ' smart'? Seriously? The crows and seagull NEVER get hit by cars in my area. The pidgeons basically walk towards the place where the tire will be…

  28. I was wondering why you bearly see any of these winged rats in your tours with Winston in the cities and all around…
    Now I know and I should have known considering it's a free meat source and it is just like you guys said- if it's free in China it'll be steamrolled.

  29. Little known fact on the flying rats. (pigeons) for some people. Pigeons were used to send messages from the front lines to HQ in WW1. ๅ…ณไบŽ้ฃž้ผ ็š„้ฒœไธบไบบ็Ÿฅ็š„ไบ‹ๅฎžใ€‚ ๏ผˆ้ธฝๅญ๏ผ‰ๅฏนๆŸไบ›ไบบๆฅ่ฏดใ€‚ ้ธฝๅญ็”จไบŽๅœจWW1ไธญไปŽๅ‰็บฟๅ‘HQๅ‘้€ๆถˆๆฏใ€‚

  30. It's popular now to add a weird noise to signify a scene change. In this case a WHOOSH! I find this practice so annoying that I usually stop listening. If this bothers anyone else, please send a note.
