Nothing’s shocking in this world of five-pound burgers and half-gallon milkshakes, and yet when we noticed a dish called “Rooster’s XXX” on the menu at MaLa Project, we definitely blushed a little. Sure, Kenka has been known to serve bull’s penis and turkey testicles, but the balls of a cock? That’s something to write home about.

At the newish, stylish Szechuan spot near the corner of St. Marks and First Avenue, you can have these huevos spiced to lip-numbing levels and tossed into a big wooden bowl (or “dry hot pot”) with unusual cuts like lamb kidney and rubber-band-like strips of pig artery (mmm, pig artery). Safe to say this is the only place in town with “Husband and Wife Lung Slice” on the menu. Watch our video, but be warned– it’s not for the faint of chicken heart.
