a.k.a. the “Bishop’s nose”
a.k.a. “Abut a’al” (in Tutong language)
If you can de-visualize this fatty appendage’s close proximity to the chicken’s *ahem* bum… and all its…err… “related activities”… then the “tongkeng” can be a delicious treat.
$1 for a stick of 5 tongkengs~ nothing stinky about this deal!
I am a fan of the tongkeng, but I can’t have too many. A stick of five small ones is OK for me. But I stopped eating it for a while after watching Brad Pitt/ Edward Norton’s movie “The Fight Club” which depicted a scene where Brad and Edward broke into some lab and stole bags and bags of liposuctioned human fat Brad said would go into face creams. Brad said something like “They’re really putting their bums on their faces!” Savoury. Back in the real world, I got over that image of bloody fat in clear plastic bags soon enough, thankfully, and am back to eating tongkeng again.
But here’s something new I learned today: the proper name of the tongkeng is “Pygostyle” (ref: The Food Pornographer http://www.thefoodpornographer.com/?p=1118).
I’ve always thought it was called the Coccyx. I just never learned how to say it.
In sum then, Chicken Ass = gooood!
