I've had the unfortunate experience of dining at "The Carnivore" during my early days of veg. I was in Kenya doing missionary work, building schools for children on the Masai Mara. Convenienty, at the end of the trip during our stay in Nairobi, the group planned for a feast at the Carnivore. I was new to veganism that year and had only been vegan and raw for around 7 months prior and hadn't worked up to being vocal about my opinions.
The stentch that wafts towards you at entry is enough to knock anyone down. It is positively disgusting. Coupled with the burning haunches of dead wild animals, this restaurant is one that all vegans and vegetarians should be sure to avoid.

They did have some veg options which was certainly a saving grace. I simply cannot imagine how one who is vegetarian could suddenly change their ethics, especially when confronted with a most revolting smell and dead animals all round.

Thanks for sharing this article, Scott. It completely disappointed me to see the author throw her ethics out the window for a taste of crocodile meat and ostrich balls. She doesn't explain WHY she wanted to try them, in the midst of being replused by the smells of roasting death. Weird, and it wasn't the ending I was expecting. The article surely paints a pathetic picture of vegetarians, like we are "only vegetarian when it's convenient (or desirable)", which unfortunately seems to be the case with many people. But coming from someone who hadn't consumed meat for 11 years?? I wonder how her stomach did after this experience? (and she doesn't mention if she vomitted it up afterward or not, as I think I would have.)
