DINERS FIND NEW RESTAURANT HARD TO SWALLOW
(China) - The menu at Beijing's latest venue for its growing army of gourmets is eye-watering rather than mouth-watering. There is no polite way of describing Guolizhuang. Situated in an elegantly restored house beside Beijing's West Lake, it is China's first specialty penis restaurant. Here, businessmen and government officials can sample the organs of yaks, donkeys, oxen and even seals. In fact, they have to, since they form part of every dish, except for those containing testicles. "This is my third visit," said one customer, Liu Qiang. "Of course, there are other restaurants that serve the penis of individual animals. But this is the first that brings them all together." Since it set up, a reservation comes with a trained waitress and a nutritionist to explain the menu and its medicinal virtues. Nutritionist Zhu Yan said clients were mainly men eager to improve their yang, or virility. Women could benefit, too, she added, although she told a female photographer: "I wouldn't recommend the testicles. The testosterone might interfere in fertility. But many women say penis is good for the skin." Some dishes seem unexceptional, such as the goat penis, sliced, dipped in flour, fried, and served skewered with soy sauce. But others are showpieces, such as "Head crowned with a Jade Bracelet" (provided by horses from the western Muslim region of Xinjiang) or "Dragon in the Flame of Desire" (yak, steamed whole, fried and flambeed). For beginners, Zhu recommended the hotpot, which offers a sampling of six types of penis, and four of testicle, boiled in chicken stock by the waitress, Liu Yunyang.
