Adventure and exotic foods sometimes appeal to my palate. Sitting on the street patio of a popular New Orleans restaurant I saw Turtle Soup on the menu and decided to give it a try!
What did it taste like?
Creamy, slightly salty, small chunks of turtle, sherry underpinning gravy like....but pretty good! Not really my thing but worth one try!
Turtle soup is banned in many places because the populations are hard to recover. Part of the Creole community New Orleans still has some restaurants that serve it. It is seen as a luxury here and in other places.
A bowl will have 23g of protein and about 400 calories. About $18 per bowl.
