WATCH: Chris Cosentino Mistakes Buddhist Symbol For Nazi Swastika On Pork You
In the latest installment of Pork You, Chris Cosentino wanders a Chinese market with all the wonder and awe of a child at Santa’s Workshop in the North Pole. The fact that Chinese butchers display all cuts of offal while his native “white guy markets” only offer up prime cuts of meat is basically what makes Cosentino’s life worth living, in case you didn’t know.
He even snags a tip on the best way to eat pork uterus from the Mexican butcher in the Chinese deli — braise it and put it on a taco! God, San Francisco is the best.
He also makes a tiny error which resulted in a YouTube Comment Troll Uprising, but we’ll take it upon ourselves to point it out for you, so you don’t have to complain about it. He chuckles at what appears to be a swastika stamped on one of the packages of meat in the deli case and has a major “WTF, this is not your mama’s market” moment. Calm down, Chris. It’s a Buddhist swastika, which, when stamped on food products, simply means that they’re vegetarian, and the making of the product has caused no harm to animals. We’re on it guys. No big deal.
The concept of vegetarian pork, however, is one you may choose to debate amongst yourselves.
