"Laws of the Jungle" team take on eating bats and lizards in first episode of the Solomon Islands edition
The "Laws of the Jungle" team were all in good spirits on day 1 in the Solomon Islands, unaware of the hardship that lies ahead!
The part 1 cast which includes, tribe leader Kim Byung Man, Park Jung Chul, Ryu Dam, Kwon Oh Joong, g.o.d"s Kim Tae Woo, Kim Gyu Ri, B2ST"s Kikwang, and martial artist director Jung Doo Hong, received a startling, yet sweet welcoming ceremony by the inhabitants of the Solomon Islands and got to try the interesting fruits and vegetables that the land had to offer.
But the most eye-catching food were the bats and monitor lizards that the tribe had to eat for dinner. The island residents roasted a dish filled with sweet potatoes, eggs, bats, and monitor lizards that were sauced with coconut milk. Kim Tae Woo was the first one to courageously try the monitor lizard and gave his review, "It tastes like meat. It"s a little stiff because it"s roasted. But the monitor lizard is okay." Kikwang also commented after taking a bite, "Oh! This is really! It tastes like well-roasted fish."
Ryu Dam was the first to try the roasted bat and shared, "The bat tastes good! It just tastes like smoked chicken. It also tastes like ham. To be honest, it"s tasty. But it"s a bit hard [to eat] because you know it"s a bat. But it"s tasty." Kim Tae Woo took a bite as well and shared, "This tastes better than the monitor lizard." Kikwang also gave his opinion, "It was surprising. If you eat this without knowing what kind of meat this is, you would think that this has a good roasted taste."
