In Quebec I managed to get some kangaroo meat, and that was delicious, and surprisingly tender.
I haven't tried snake meat yet, and I've been meaning to try it out.
The recent kerfuffle about the dog meat festival over in Asia has got me curious to try it out. None of the provincial slaughterhouses are licensed to provide dog meat (not illegal in canada, but nobody's been willing to take on the PR nightmare). Any idea where I can get some?
Has anybody here got any "non traditional" meat they'd recommend? A small carribean place in ottawa serves goat, but they're always "sold out" when I go in to try it. I figure I love lamb, goat should be interesting. I'd like to try horse meat as well, has anybody tried it?

Gotta say, polar bear and seal make me curious.
Lamb, goat, rabbit are all easily found in grocery stores.
The only restaurant I've ever seen less common meat available is at The Works of all places where they offer Elk burger. I'd imagine it's similar to caribou, but might have a different flavor profile because I believe it is farmed and not game meat.
I've tried frog... Meh. Could take it or leave it really.
There are hunters who take down Coyote regularly if dog meat is what you're curious about, but keep in mind they scavenge, and each animal will probably taste a lot like what it managed to scrounge up. Your best chance is probably a hunting forum.
You could always go to the pet store and make a long term investment
I've tried: frogs, salamander, snake, locaust, eel, aligator
Other than that ... any other WILD game I'm in for a taste . Want to make a nice squirrel roasting skewer some time soon .
