One thing I wanted to try in America was bison or buffalo. You see them roam the great plains of the country in epic movies such as Dancing with Wolves. At a burger restaurant in New York I chose a bison burger. The server said the meat is leaner than beef, so have it cooked a little less than you’d normally like. I asked for medium rare.
The burger patty was huge and definitely home made. To my surprise it was cooked all the way through, but I was hungry so I dug in anyway. It was definitely on the dry side, but not overly so. Taste wise I didn’t think it differed much from beef. Had I not known what it was I would have probably said it was beef.
