Are there restaurants that specialize in this stuff?
Any interesting stories on this subject?

I also look out for tripe on dim sum trollies; it's usually cooked with soy sauce, and therefore an unexpected dark brown color.
I guess duck and chicken feet count as offal? Great cold chicken feet at Congee Village, as I recall.

Did I ever mention that I've found both duck hearts and gizzards in the butcher of the market that runs between Mott and Elizabeth just north of Hester? Were you the one who asked about a year ago?
Ed and others, where can I get a nice dish of shrimp and (pork) kidneys in Chinatown? We used to have this in Chef Ma, a restaurant that was across the street from where Shanghai Joe is now, but many years ago. Since then, everytime I've seen it on a menu, they're out of it that day. I am reminded of it because of a dish Gagnaire served that included kdineys and seafood. This is not to say that Gagnaire's dish itself was in any way reminiscent of the dish I had in Chinatown.

Might I just mention that I thought this was the Offal thread on the General forum - I wasn't presuming to respond for Ed, and look forward to his comments. oops.
