Not everything you put in your mouth is delicious

I really enjoy food. People who know me know this. I can eat most anything. Even though I used to be a pseudo-vegetarian, while traveling I usually eat meat. At a little restaurant in a park I thought it would be fun to try something new. I looked on the menu and saw something about chicken. So I asked for that and waited for about a half an hour to be served this:

It looks pretty good, right? And the smell was wonderful. But the closer I looked at the chicken to see what part of the animal it was the more worried I became. I've tried some weird meats in Bulgaria . . . so I took a bite and immediately could tell it was one of those 'delicacy' meats. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't eat. I almost puked at the table trying to swallow the first bite. After three tastes, I gave up. The waiter tried to convince me it was delicious, but I just told him it wasn't delicious for me. Turns out it was дроб- liver. Not my cup of tea.
