At least fois gras is worth it, and it isn't NEARLY as cruel, not to mention, the entire duck gets eaten. I also tried birds nest soup, and thats a crock of crap as well. Salty broth with a mild almost mushroomy aroma....waste of money. Try it once, and forget about it.
i've had bird's nest soup and i thought it was pretty good, although once again, i'm not sure it was the actual "bird's nest" that made it taste good.

agree on the shark meat though; one of the worst pieces of fish i've ever had
