Eating snake skin

snake skin

Snake skin is used for a wide variety of products – handbags, shoes etc. However, I still feel that the best use for snake skin is a quick trip down your throat and into your stomach. smirk

I bought an entire snake to have a Full Course (TM) of snake – blood, gall, skin, and meat. I hear the skin is one of the best parts of the snake.

It was served as an appetizer and comes in spicy and sour tones. I really liked it. It tastes like sea cucumbers except it’s tougher and more chewy.

I give snake skin two thumbs up (would have given it three but I only have two hands). It kinda overshadows the snake meat. It’s served cold and I’ve gotta tell you, I ate one bowl of steaming rice just with this snake skin.

It’s delicious! Think sea cucumber – except it’s harder to chew and swallow. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. I have been reading your blog since I was in Australia back in 2002 and was pretty sad when u disappeared for a while….
    Seriously. Reading your blog never fails to amaze me with the things that u do n best part is that u go thru the detail process of explaining what u went thru.
    I have to really give u credits for this cos these r things I will probably not do but u gave mea chance to “experience” it

  2. HKB, not sure U.S. eat snakeskin but they do like rattlesnakes in Texas and use skin for boots and handbags. In the south they love alligators deep fried very much.

  3. not bad, not bad. eating sea cucumber is like chewing on foreskin. ha ha ha. only messing with you bro. good to see you are living the life and experiencing the exotic orient. who’s the hot chick in the photo standing next to the snake cage?

  4. nicole: Yup, looks tasty doesn’t it! =D
    xSean: Cheers! ๐Ÿ™‚
    It’s the entire package – skin included as an appetizer. It’s pretty good actually. They cook it in a spicy and sour concoction – chillis and vinegar. ๐Ÿ™‚
    MrPP: Thanks for reading mate! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Yeah that was the original intention behind (at least with the advent of veritas).
    I like to experience new things, it’s part of my personality. Whether that’s good or bad, I’m not too sure, but with age, I’m starting to lean towards to latter. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Vickie: Mmm…deep fried alligators! It sounds delicious! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Rattlesnake ain’t half bad too, would love to try it. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Michelle Chin: I bought an entire snake in Guilin, China so I’m eating the entire thing. Heh! ๐Ÿ™‚
    suituapui: Seriously, not half bad as it sounds – the Guilin chillis are really spicy and the chewy snake skin is perfect! ๐Ÿ™‚
    rocket: Haha! How would you know what chewing on foreskin feels like mate? ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Yup, when in China, gotta eat all of those exotic food that would be hard to get wholesale in Malaysia.
    That’s a Guilin local, she’s the waitress. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. you must be going to the wrong place. plenty of places in Kuching where you can get snakes, live ones, to be done in whatever way tickles your fancy.
    re: foreskin, ask your ladies friends, they would vouch to that. Perhaps that could be your next mission.
    Oh yes, did you collect any paw from Mrs Lim? Then you have to marry one of her daughters.

  6. Hi! Visiting again after a while ๐Ÿ˜‰ Oh dear Snake skin! Actually, I don’t mind eating snake skin, or snake for that matter. I’ve always wanted to try snake porridge! What are you planning to do with the rest of the snake meat?? ๐Ÿ˜›

  7. ahhh fuck i feel physically sick. have i mentioned that i can’t even look at toy rubber snakes without feeling like i need to scrub my skin T_____T

  8. what is T_______T????
    And there’s nothing wrong with eating snakes. They taste like chicken. I wonder if it’s possible to make snake flavoured ice cream.

  9. rocket: Yeah, I know one in 10th mile but they don’t kill the entire snake for you. The snakes are already dead. ๐Ÿ™
    veen dee: Erm…Veen Dee ah, don’t hate me ar, but I already ate dog meat in Korea. ๐Ÿ™
    I think I also ate a hamster or a guinea pig in China. ๐Ÿ™
    Peach Boy: Hmm…not sure that is a good thing. :p
    iamthewitch: Hello there! Welcome back and thanks for reading! ๐Ÿ™‚
    The rest of the snake meat was cooked in their local specialty – it tasted delicious – the post after the one about the gall of the snake. ๐Ÿ™‚
    aud: HAHAAHA! I wish I had brought some back and told you it was something else. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    KY: Yeah, it’s reall good stuff! ๐Ÿ™‚
    rocket: It’s the crying emoticon. T_T
    No, it doesn’t taste like chicken, it tastes better than chicken! =D
    My car is really super fucked up now I can’t worry when I drive it. ๐Ÿ™

  10. HB: What’s wrong with your car how? Just get a new rim and do a wheel alignment. And yeah, stop parking illegally.
    Eiling: hell no, stop egging HB to eat snake or he will be too wild in bed.

  11. the skin very spongy n hard to chew i think… ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    y u nvr eat the meat as it taste nice on phyton but this snake i duno..hehe

  12. Now the snake skin!! i wonder if the snake bone can make soup anot? o.O And hey! u can 4 thumb up by including the thumb of the 2 legs XD

  13. eiling: I’m sure there’s some in China. There’s everything in China. Preserved duck eggs as a snack. Chicken feet with chili as a snack. Even preserved BBQ chicken wings as a ready-to-eat snack!
    (which tastes horrible btw).
    However, I think eating snake skin like this taste better though. ๐Ÿ™‚
    lf: It’s nice coz you can see the color of the snake. ๐Ÿ™‚
    It goes into shoes, handbags, and boots so why not just eat it. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    rocket: It’s been a bit wonky ever since the major car crash (the only one I have never posted about) which involves 30 minutes of memory loss and somehow ending up in a ditch with CID pulling me out and good friends coming to save me coz I was incoherant. I had to bribe my way out of it too. Good thing it’s CID and not traffic police. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    eiling: HAHAHA! Yup, inspiration eh? ๐Ÿ˜‰
    shimmers999: You should overcome it! I hate spiders.
    I mean, that’s a guy’s way of saying he is afriad of spiders but I’ll eat a spider. Even a live one. Provided it’s prepared properly e.g. washed coz I sure as hell am not touching any spiders larger than a 5 cent coin. Hell, even that scares me. ๐Ÿ™
    ah nel: It’s chewy but it’s tasty! It has a surprising taste and texture to it due to the way it’s prepared – Guilin style with lots of chilli. Guilin people eat a lot of spicy food.
    I did eat the meat – that’s another post. =D
    vicky: Hmm…this snake is too small to make soup. The bone was in the snake meat – not a lot, can chew through it.
    Very tasty snake. Very. ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. HB: Being incoherent is good. takes your worries away from all the BS in the world. I wish I can be incoherent, the stress that I carry each day is ridiculous. How I wish i can be in your shoes.
    The wheel is not fixed? Wonky? The steering wheel vibrates a lot? Perhaps balancing is out. Yeah, M’sia ia great, a bit of grease money goes a long way.
    Eiling: I am not so sure about that, HB is a bit dodgy at times, won’t tell us the name of the girl with the super white teeth.
    And he is super dodgy here. Buy your own tooth paste mate. ha ha ha

  15. foodcrazee: Heh! Alright! Snakes make good pets but good food too. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    rocket: Oh, I seriously doubt you want to be in my shoes. I have ED btw, from my drinking. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    HAHA! Kidding.

  16. What is ED???? Extra-ordinary-large Dog? Note to self, don’t mess with HB, he has a very big dog. What sort of car do you drive dude? Looks like a hot up up sports car. A commodore perhaps?

  17. Your last two snake posts…eww eww eww….haha!
    Have you ever tasted cold chicken feet skin, served at old-skool chicken rice stalls? Is this snake skin dish kinda like that?
    What other dishes did you have out of this snake? Fried snake scales? Poached snake eyeballs?

  18. rocket: Haha! Erectile Dysfunction la.
    I drive a Toyota Vios, nah, not even rich enough to afford a sports car. ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. as always… a neat… um sucicint article. canint remember eating snake skin… but I have eaten snake, well what did it taste like… well.. we were so hungry at the time… thats like asking me what amidillo or gator tastes like. well.. ok at the time. I forget. I know rubbing the scales the wrong the wrong way is just like rubbing a cat against the fur. the leather is too thin except for a hatband. I am chistian, but I have friends who are jewish and muslim. and they are horrified that I used to work in a barbeque returant. ever had chitlins. but the leather is good. pig skin. after the hog legs had roasted, you get the skin and drop it in hot oil. deep fried pig skins. pretty good. I am always amused when persons say I wont eat that massed produced hot dogs. natutal casings only. um.. ok.. where do you think those come from… and it is not so nice when you are squirting the shit out of a hogs intestines… natural casingings. I reckon if most persons ever seen beer or wine, or a dairy farm… now hand me one of those deep fried pork skins… pretty crunnchuy and good.. it is a gift from God and you should not waste that. thanks HB.

  20. tom: Hmm…which reminds me, I should probably catch a snake and prepare it myself. That would be a good idea. Thanks for the tip! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Deep fried pig skin is pretty normal for us too….tastes good.
    I eat just about anything.
    Yup, agree with it’s a gift from God and not to be wasted. ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. eddy: Anytime bro! Sure thing, just tell me when you’re free. I can do weekends only though and if it’s not travel then we do local! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Irene: It’s all good Irene! Serious, you just need to get over the fact that it’s snake (just think it’s chicken) and it’ll be delicious! ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. eddy: Sure thing, it’ll be fun! Anytime except weekdays though. Just give me advance notice.
    We shall to go EXOTIC (as in REALLY) exotic places. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Irene: Seriously, just think of it as chicken. Pretend it’s chicken and get to enjoy the full flavor of the snake. It is really something to experience the entire thing. Worth it. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Simon Seow: Yeah, you really must experience the entire snake – not just the stew. It is a really interesting experience for me. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Go try it, you won’t regret it. Cheers bro!

  23. I can see that you are an expert in this area. I am starting a website soon, and your information will be very useful for me.. Thanks for all your help and wishing you all the success in your business.

  24. This article will surely help out a lot of people today having problems with their iTunes plus upgrades. I’ll tweet this a single to spread the word.
