Oxtail is a regular dish from my culture. I have had escargot at French restaurants and Ruth's Chris steakhouse has a very good escargot appetizer. amandasunly 7 years I've eaten both - there's nothing un-ordinary about them. They're easier to eat than foie gras and caviar. Or maybe it's just because I've been eating raw sushi since I was a baby. And I've eaten snake before. Hmm. foxy21 7 years I LOVE ESCARGOT!!!! It is one of my favorite foods! Schaianne 7 years I've had oxtail and love it .... not sure if I can get past the escargot mindset thing. But I can eat sushi and other seafood ... mussels are basically the equivalent of snails. I'd probably eat escargot over edible bugs though. PrissyLilBadAss 7 years My mommy makes the most fantastic ox-tail barley soup. It has become the comfort food of everyone in my family (with the exception of my veggie sister)! soprettyinpink 7 years filipinos have a great dish called kare-kare. its basically oxtail stew and its amazing! Ejmcmis 7 years Oxtails. Hands down. I've had both, but Oxtail is better. A friend of my mom is jamican and his family has a special recipe for Oxtails. OMG. THE. BEST. EVERRRRRRR!!!!! amazing and out of this world. My mom has begged him for the reciepe, but he always says no and he'd make it for us.... I've had Oxtail in other places but none nearly like his. The worst part about all of this is my mom and he lost touch and now I'm left craving Oxtails. Yum: NOT FAIR !!! ;-) gkgirl 7 years Oxtail is really delicious....tasty and juicy...yum. sumnboutme 7 years I've had oxtail since I was a little girl...yummy! Oxtail and ox tongue! Escargot I've had but it's definitely an acquired taste. nancita 7 years I don't eat red meat anymore, but my dad made ox tails for dinner a number of years ago and had my brother and me try them without telling us what they were. I thought the meat was very tasty and not weird at all, so I was shocked when he said they were oxtails. crispet1 7 years Ive had escargot but not oxtails, so Id like to try the ox! DCStar 7 years I adore Escargot, but have never tried Ox Tail! LaLaLaurie06 7 years escargot is pretty good as long as it's not too garlicky. the kind I had were a bit too much, so I couldn't finish them all. Chiquita-82 7 years No way ewwww Food 7 years pinkflats - a lot of folks are just not very adventurous when it comes to food. one of my old college pals wouldn't eat anything she found the tiniest bit "weird" - she ordered the same food each time and if she hadn't had it before she didn't want to try it. Surprisingly there are a lot of people like her, they're just scared of things I guess. pnai_foxxx - this wasn't meant to be insulting, just a would you rather. last week we did a would you rather eat ice cream sandwiches or sundaes - we're always curious to see what people would like to try! personally i love both oxtail and escargot and am not sure which I would order. I think it would have to depend on my mood that day. or maybe I would have to do like arthur suggests and order both! partysugar 7 years I've had both and would have them both again! pattyxxcore 7 years I would try both if given the chance, I'm sure. I'm a vegetarian, however I'm sickingly obsessed with france and escargot is up on my list of things to try before I die. campbells used to make oxtail soup in a can, it was my grandmother's favorite before she passed away. Ayamari 7 years Okay, I can eat plastic but not that stuff!!! stnybaby 7 years jessbear, i hope you're joking about the boogery part because of course all the items would be cleaned before eating. just like you would have to wash your veggies before eating, the same is done for meats and such. as for escargots and oxtail - both are delish! oxtail really does taste just like beef so it's not really unusual (aside from its name) but escargot for some may be texture-new. i'm asian so i'm exposed to lots of out-of-the-ordinary culinary tastes... JessBear 7 years It's things like this that make me glad I'm a vegetarian. I once lived next door to a barbeque place who's main attraction was...pig snouts! People came from all over the area to eat a snoot sandwich at this place. I don't really get that...wouldn't it be crunchy and boogery? accessxdenied 7 years I've had both, and I personally think that both dishes are delicious. I'm chinese, so oxtail stew is a homestyle dish that my mum makes (mostly in the winter). Plus, since I live in Canada, many fancy restaurants that I've frequented in Quebec (well of course other provinces serve escargot, but gotta go to the best!)serve escargots as an amazing appetizer! Yum :D pnai_foxxx 7 years uh, this question is SO insulting. oxtail is part of my culture/national dish. im so disappointed in you, yumsugar. pinkflats 7 years eaten far worse* pinkflats 7 years ummm i don't really see anything wrong with them. i've far worse. who were these non-fellow foodies you talked to yumsugar? ccy 7 years Yumm! OxTails!
