>Anyone eaten reindeer? Does it taste like venison? I doubt it tastes
Yeah. But it was a long time ago, back when there was a World's Fair
in Flushing Meadows, NY...
I was, mmm, 15, IIRC. I was visiting the Fair with my family. We ate
one meal in a Scandinavian pavilion, but which i don't recall,
probably either Sweden or Finland. I ordered reindeer. IIRC, it had
been salted, and it was thinly sliced (sort of like carpaccio). I
can't recall what vegetable i had with the reindeer. For dessert i
had cloudberries with cream.
The taste of the reindeer was definitely not like chicken :-) But it
wasn't like venison, either, probably because of the way it was
prepared. At this point, over 40 years later, my memory suggests it
tasted a bit like pastrami, but more tender, as it was so thinly
