[mood |exhaustedexhausted]

Real "birds nest soup" is made from bird spit - the gooey, stringy saliva that Chinese swiftlets use to attach their nests to the walls of caves. The hardened saliva is prized for it's medicinal and aphrodisiac properties. The license fee to harvest one cave? $100,000. The soup is a simple chicken broth, with one good dollop of bird spit in it.

have you ever seen bizarre foods with andrew zimmern on the travel channel? they did a show dedicated mostly to bird's nest soup awhile back. i've seen him eat much crazier things than that.

I love that show, but I love No Reservations with Anthony Bourdain more.

I get a kick out of watching people eat weird stuff :)

I am full on in love with Tony. If he weren't married with a kid, I'd be hunting his ass down to marry me :)
