Honestly, if it came down to survival I would eat anything, bugs included. As for the staples of meat that one would ordinarily find at grocery stores, I do not eat a lot of lamb (not saying I wouldn't), but that's about it. I prefer game animals, deer, elk, buffalo, rabbit, squirrel, etc.

Anything I can't find on a restaurant menu, and that doesn't include things that are unknowingly presented as something else...

Anything that has the possibility of outliving me. Sturgeon, some parrots, etc.

None. I will try anything once. Had a lovely braised dog in Korea one time. Yet to eat cat, but would try it.

Which restaurant? You can find a lot of things on menus: chicken feet, hearts and geoduck.

Let's see... I don't think I would eat any farmed fish.

In general, I don't eat North American marsupials or mustelids.

I probably shouldn't eat members of the ursus genus since they virtually all have trichinella spores in their tissues, but I eat them when available; just have to slow cook or ensure 160 degree internal temperature for at least three minutes before consumption.

On principle I don't eat members of genus canis or vulpes, except for coyotes. I don't eat coyotes because they are just nasty.

I've eaten mountain lion, but wouldn't eat any felids smaller than that.

No rodents. Seriously, no rodents... Except maybe capybara. Most lagomorphs are okay, though... Except for jack rabbits. Never eat a jack rabbit.

Probably wouldn't eat a primate, although some old world monkeys could conceivably be acceptable table fare.

All cervids are on the menu as well as all members of the bos genus... Actually, most ungulates are on the menu. I can't really think of any that aren't.

I don't have much interest in eating jellyfish. Apparently cabbage-head jellyfish from the gulf of Mexico are imported by the ton to Asian countries where they are considered a delicacy, but I literally can't understand that.

I generally distrust meat that I didn't kill and butcher myself and have some similar reservations about the life experiences of feedlot beef cattle destined for Costco... But sometimes nothing will do other than a grain-finished, dry aged, bone-in ribeye that's three inches thick... and it came from a member of the bos genus.

Geoduck... That's a good one. I don't eat geoduck. Nothing against molluscs as a clade, but I just can't eat a geoduck.

I don't know, I don't even eat out much.
