Trying new and different food is a fun experience. There are a ton of unique and exotic meats to try in Colorado. When you eat exotic meat you have to keep an open mind.

Even if the meat is gross and nasty, you have the opportunity to try something new. You never know when you may find a new favorite.

I had that experience a few years ago. I used to be a relatively picky eater until I tried frog legs. Frog legs are generally a French dish, but I had the opportunity to try them.

They were great. I said the famous phrase when most people try a new exotic meat.

Oh, it tastes like chicken! 

Unique Colorado Bites


We live in an area where eating an elk burger is normal. I have family on the west coast and they can't believe that eating elk is so common in Colorado.

And of course, Colorado is famous for rocky mountain oysters. I will admit, I refuse to try rocky mountain oysters. I can't forget what they actually are. I've had quite a few opportunities, but I always pass.

We recently explored what makes Biker Jim's Gourmet Dogs in Denver so unique. Their ostrich hot dog is famous across the globe.

The hot dog is so famous in Colorado that it is now sold at Safeway grocery stores across Colorado. So if you are curious, you do not have to drive to Denver to try it.

We were curious about the most exotic meats that Coloradans have tried. We reached out on Facebook and here were some of the responses.
