I'm meant to eat that?

To lunch today at Foliage in the Mandarin Oriental in Knightsbridge, a rather posh if eclectic restaurant.

The food was excellent, if a little strangely presented (imagine quail egg-sized pea and new potato hash browns, and smoked eel croquettes). But I had the strangest food I have ever eaten as part of the amuse-bouche...

It wasn't the food per se, more the mix of cultures that inspired it...

Curried frog's leg in a light batter.

Or is that perhaps best thought of as a frog pakora?

(Cue Pythonesque policeman and a dollop of lark's vomit)
