TAMPA – UPDATE: Restaurant will no longer offer lion on its menu.

(WFTS-TV) PREVIOUS REPORT: A small south Tampa restaurant is causing quite the stir over a unique item offered on their menu: lion.

For $35 dollars taco lovers can try lion, as in, the king of the jungle.

“I thought the lion was good,” said patron Lee Weiner. “It didn’t taste too gamey to me, similar to steak.”
